Meditation: The act of engaging in mental exercise to reach a heightened level of spiritual
awareness or mindfulness. This report uses a composite measure based on responses to three
questions regarding the use of: 1) mantra meditation, including transcendental meditation,
relaxation response, and clinically standardized meditation; 2) mindfulness meditation, including
vipassana, Zen Buddhist meditation, mindfulness-based stress reduction, and mindfulness-based
cognitive therapy; and 3) spiritual meditation, including centering prayer and contemplative
meditation.
