I finally picked a topic for my essay. I decided that I am going to do meditation as a type of healing. I haven’t really looked into this topic much, but it seems like it will have a lot of information and also I have been meditating in one of my other classes. I picked meditation because in my service learning class, we talk about different types of meditations every week and practice them for eight minutes a day. I was always on the edge about meditating because I thought that it was pointless and a waste of time. We are supposed to meditate everyday, but honestly I only do it when we are in class. It does make me feel more relaxed though. This is why I want to write my paper on meditation because I want to find out how meditation actually works. I never really did understand meditation, so I will have a lot of research to do.
