I don't know if I'd call it a dying art, mainly because there have been many people recommended it to me plus I know of a few who practice it. I went to a seminar in first year ('how to survive Uni') That actually suggested meditation as a way to get on top of stress and my doctor told me the same. I actually tend to think the world is now shifting and 'coming back to' some traditional methods like meditation (well that's at least what I have observed).
Any who, yes I meditate. Maybe every second day, trying to get into a routine where it is everyday and as mentioned above, its to help cope with stress and so far it helps. I basically meditate any where, where its quiet. Which where I live, is basically only in the early morning when only the birds are up.
