Meditation

Meditation is a practice where an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realize some benefit or for the mind to simply acknowledge its content without becoming identified with that content, or as an end in itself. The term meditation refers to a broad variety of practices that includes techniques designed to promote relaxation, build internal energy or life force (qi, ki, prana, etc.) and develop compassion, love, patience, generosity, and forgiveness. A particularly ambitious form of meditation aims at effortlessly sustained single-pointed concentration meant to enable its practitioner to enjoy an indestructible sense of well-being while engaging in any life activity.

Muse gives you feedback about your meditation in real time by translating your brain signals into the sounds of wind (or other nature sounds). When your mind is calm and settled, you hear calm and settled winds. When your mind is active the winds will pick up and blow. This feedback is amazingly grounding and creates thought control and peace.
