"Eyes half closed, tongue curled up to just touch the roof of the mouth: the Force running in a wheel from the top of one's head, spilling down through one's spine, then the marrow of one's thighbones, then draining from the pressure point in the soles of the feet to discharge."
―Yoda describing silent meditation[src]

Silent Meditation was one of the many meditative techniques found in the Jedi Order at the time of the Clone Wars; other forms included "tidal breathing" and the common seven-second relaxation technique. Taught to young pupils by the wise Master Yoda, the centering exercise was used by countless Padawans and Knights, often while embroiled in dangerous situations, such as when trapped on a hostile planet, shrouded in the dark side of the Force.
