Traditionally, meditation has been viewed as a set of religious beliefs combined with special teachings, and practices.
However, in this NEW AGE, it has been accepted as a way of being rather than an only religious practice.
The objective of the practice is to simply be able to relax your mind and be able to enter different states of consciousness in order to to be open to the receptiveness of different states of creativity, growth, and transformation.
