Does the church have an approved means of meditation that can we use?

The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola which is a program of meditations, prayers, considerations, and contemplative practices can help Catholics become more fully alive in their faith. The Ignatian method of prayer uses visual imagination to draw nearer to God. These Exercises are divided into segments which focus upon a different theme-human sin; Christ's death on the cross; and Christ's risen life. A key theme throughout the Spiritual Exercises is discernment and the need to discern between good desires and evil desires in one's life.
