I found mindful meditation explained by Jon Kabat-Zinn very helpful.

http://www.mindfulnesstapes.com/author.html

His meditation program was created for a pain/stress management program in a clinic. The best part of this program is that it doesn't require to be spiritual. People tend to associate so many different ideas, either positive or negative, with spirituality. Since meditation is frequently associated with religion/spirituality, it can turn off some people who don't have a positive view on spiritual issues. However, according to Kabat-Zinn, you can get benefit out of meditation regardless of your view on spirituality. Of course, you don't have to be an atheist either to meditate. Meditation experience can be either spiritual or non-spiritual, depending on personal view.

Well, I feel like what I'm writing is something obvious. I just remember reading Kabat-Zinn's book helped me understand meditation without getting into mystery of spirituality. :)

I am not sure where you are at with your meditation, you need to get to point where you experience deep stillness/silence

Then when you meditate, You need to focus on the pain, where its coming from, the body area.

Make it part of your awareness. After a while, it will start to go away.....

This is a link to The Meditation Society of Australia's guided meditations: http://download.meditation.org.au/guidedmeditations.asp

They also have a learn to meditate podcast series. I've been listening to them for about 18 months. They have helped me let go of my prejudices of Eastern philosophies and allowed me to feel comfortable listening to any beliefs, taking away only what I feel are truth and not judging what I do not agree with or do not understand.
