People have been meditating for thousands of years. And, we know why.
Meditation started as a religious practice, with the earliest known written records coming from Hindu traditions around 1500 BCE. Since, it’s grown into many methods and practices throughout the world.
Today, most modern meditation practices are focused on stress reduction and other mindfulness, rather than focusing on religious growth and connection.
