X-men Star Takes Time To Meditate

X-MEN: THE LAST STAND star BEN FOSTER is a Transcendental Meditation expert - he's been practicing the calm process since he was four years old.
And he insists his talent for finding stillness on movie sets helps him focus on the intense roles he plays.
The 3:10 To Yuma villain explains, "TM, like many techniques, allow us to hear our own voice and one can take a walk in the evening by themselves, some people go jogging, some people knit."
Foster's meditating has become a ritual for him and he always makes time to clear his mind for TM sessions twice a day.
He tells WENN, "It's a ritual that allows us that quiet space inside, so we can hear what we are feeling, what we are thinking.
"TM has always been a source of quieting the static mind... and it creates more space; it's a source of energy.
"I just know that when I do this in the morning and the afternoon that I have a clearer, calmer energy that doesn't feel forced or provoked by a chemical... You have a clearer mind and images and feelings can come up and one can actually address them.
"I usually meditate at lunch on sets. It's a technique that works for me. I have a lot more internal strength to approach the day than I do when I'm not meditating regularly."
And Foster admits he can meditate just about anywhere: "A comfortable, quiet space is great - a couch, the back seat of a car, trains, planes, automobiles, your bedroom, under a tree. It's just closing the eyes.
"It's just an ancient technique that allows for more silence to exist."
