Currently many spiritual and psychophysical practices support meditative methods that target particular needs. These methods evolved from early meditative practices that can be grouped into four distinct styles: concentrative, generative, receptive and reflective.
Concentrative meditative methods teach you to fixate on an object in order to free the mind from distracting thoughts and emotions. Many classical techniques fall under this category. The most prevalent method is to follow the inhalation and exhalation of your breath.
