The core elements of all meditation are an upright posture, an object of meditation, and “what you do with the mind,” said Paul ReFalo, director of the Portland (Ore.) Shambhala Center.
There are many possible focus points: your breathing, a word, the physical sensations in your hands, a sound, or the motion of your steps in walking. As your mind naturally wanders and you gently bring it back to the object of meditation, you begin to notice the direction your thoughts want to take and you develop mental discipline.
“It’s very much like exercising for the body or practicing a musical instrument,” ReFalo said. “We want to teach techniques that are able to provide you enough emotional or mental room around the subject that you can begin to relate to it directly.”
