Meditation is any form of a family of practices in which practitioners train their minds or self-induce a mode of consciousness to realize some benefit. 

Meditation is generally an inwardly oriented, personal practice, which individuals can do by themselves. Prayer beads or other ritual objects may be used during meditation. Meditation may involve invoking or cultivating a feeling or internal state, such as compassion, or attending to a specific focal point. The term can refer to the state itself, as well as to practices or techniques employed to cultivate the state.

Meditation need not cost you a fortune, fear not you can access free meditation courses from Buddhist Temples, or you can do an intensive 10 day course. These two as an example charge nothing or are very reasonable pricing.

Vipassana means to see things as they really are. Ten-day courses in this ancient meditation practice are offered in every state of Australia and in New Zealand.

The technique is a pure science of mind and matter. It is also an art of living, an antidote to all the stresses and strains of life. It provides a deep pool of peace and harmony within, and ultimately leads to the end of suffering.

There are no charges for the courses, because the technique itself is invaluable. All costs are covered by donations from previous students.
