There are many different meditation practices originating from various spiritual and secular traditions.  Most, however, stress the importance of quieting the compulsive thinking mind, which wanders on average 50 times in 5 minutes.  This on - going thinking -  often unsettling, non - productive and not related to what we are experiencing in the present moment - usually emanates from some level of egoic fear and pulls us into the past or the future.
