Meditation

Meditation is a practice where you use focus to achieve an emotionally stable and mentally clear state.

Spirituality

It's probable that meditation can serve as the basis of a secular but spiritual practice. My thinking is that I can develop a ritual of meditation to increase the feeling of connection, peace, and to take time to reflect.

Secular spirituality emphasizes the personal growth and inner peace of the individual, rather than a relationship with the divine. Secular spirituality is made up of the search for meaning outside of a religious institution; it considers one's relationship with the self, others, nature, and whatever else one considers to be the ultimate. Often, the goal of secular spirituality is living happily and/or helping others. - Wikipedia

This is probably a good philosophy to adopt, and a mild enough philosophy to be tolerable.

Benefits

Meditation provides modest relief for anxiety and pain.

If you're not suffering from any illness or repressed trauma, meditation isn't likely to cause harm.
