Please research objective resources before making any judgments about meditation.

Roman Catholic priests, brothers, monks, and many Christian ministers also meditate. This practice has been going on for centuries. In fact, meditation has been a part of Christianity since the beginning.

Christian meditation consists of prayer, chanting, (For example: Gregorian Chanting) and scripture study. In Joshua 1:8, God tells his people to meditate on his word (the Bible) day and night.

Joshua 1:8 – “Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.” The spiritual aspect of Yoga will be revealed to you in the shape of your own religious belief, when you are ready for it. There is no need to for anyone change their religion or anything, just try to relax and be mindful of your daily actions. Mindfulness is an essential step in meditation practice.
