Hence contemplation was accepted though by specific groups of individuals. However meditation was more generally associated with eastern traditions such as Zen and yoga, and many who wished to explorerepparttar 113238 contemplative life turned to Eastern teachers who were beginning to establish themselves inrepparttar 113239 West.
