In brief: Conscious breathing

There are many different ways to meditate but the essence is taking slow deep breaths while focusing on the process & focusing your mind on a sound or image.
One of my favorite techniques is to take a deep breath in & softly say "ommm" as you breathe out, focusing on how the sound vibrates you.See www.Alternative-medicine.Net/meditation/english.Html & http://www.Youtube.Com/watch?V=a8gruee0ehs.

You do not need to be a master. Find someone who can teach you this and then practice it consistently.
