There are a lot of good focusing techniques from around the world. If by "eastern" you're thinking of stuff coming out of China and Japan,
there's still a wealth of options from which to choose: From Tai Chi to zazen.
First, what, specifically, are you trying to accomplish? A way to clear your mind at work or somewhere else that's relatively confined? A way to
start the day "fresh?" Something that's quiet, or does volume not matter?
In a similar vein to the growing rock meditation mentioned above, another very simple one is to sit and breathe: in through your nose and out through
your mouth. Try to determine at what physical point the incoming air ceases to be "air" and starts to become "breath."
