Calm Abiding Meditation

Calm Abiding Meditation is a secular and universal technique of meditation that involves cultivating single-pointed concentration on a defined 'object of meditation'. It is a natural process that helps you to improve focus on ordinary tasks and makes you more relaxed and peaceful.
