The foundation of mediation is it's simplicity.  If someone gives you a technique that requires that and training, it's not the best form of meditation.  I sit in the stereotypical meditation style.  This conditions the body to devote itself to the act.  Try and meditate laying down and you will go to sleep, because that's what you do when you lay down.  In devoting a physical position to meditation alone you prepare your whole self for the experience.  Then I simply take some deep breaths while relaxing, stare into the blackness of my closed eyes, and listen.  Nothing to it!

You can go to Barnes and Nobles or to your local (public) library. There are some very good books that address meditation in General and in every culture and religions. Meditation for Dummies, by Stephan Bogan (I am not sure of the last name) is excellent, and actually not for dummies at all! It gives you many ways of meditating. You can lay down if you are not tired, then you will not fall asleep (but if you don't sleep enough for sure you will hear yourself snoring, a sign that you fell asleep). The easiest and simplest and most common is to concentrate on your breath. When you inhale you focus your attention (awareness) to your nostril (you can say in your mind "in" to help you), and when you exhale you do the same and try to feel the air going out of your nostrils (you can reapeat "out" in your mind). At that same time of course you have to relax completely. Your mind will wander a little bit to other things (itchy leg, hungry?, car in the street, the TV is on, ... you think about something else, etc...) then bring your attention back to your breathing. This can happen a lot. At some stage you might even start to have visions, hear sounds, .. that's ok. You have to ignore these too and continue to concentrate on your breathing. At one point your attention, focuse, awareness will lock onto the object of meditation. At this stage you will start to be disconnect to the rest of the world and be aware only of the object of meditation: you have reach full absorption.

Other methods consist of not concentrating on any object in particular, just to "look" at things (thoughts, sounds from the outside, your own body, ...) with a sens of detachment, without giving them importance. Other methods consist to pay attention to the "gaps" between everything that comes up to your mind/awareness. Others techniques have mantras. Mantras are phrases or just words that one repeats such as (Thibet) "Om Mani Padme Hum" (or just "Om", which means "hello" - "hello jewel in the Lotus") or in Kabbalah "Ribono shel Olam" (Master of the Universe), etc... In theory the subject of meditation (Budhism) is chosen particularly for a meditator (it's a long story).

There are as many ways of meditating as there are people...! So, I would just recommand you that book that I just mentioned. It is simple and straightforward.
