Launching July 16, 2012
Newest FREE Deepak Chopra 21-Day
Guided Meditation Recordings
A well-known Teacher once said, “I have so much to do today — if I hope to accomplish everything on my list, I must meditate twice as long.”
Most of us are more likely to say, “I have so much to do today, there’s no way I have time for meditation or anything else!” I used to say that myself until I figured out that I have all the time I need for the things that matter most. My role is simply to discern exactly what matters most in each moment.
The funny thing is that people from spiritual traditions throughout the world have long reported that regular meditation actually results in greater efficiency and productivity. They discover the power of FLOW: an effortless, stressless, joy-filled way of living grounded in being NOT doing.
For those who might want to give it a try — or for those who are already committed to meditation — I wanted to share a great opportunity with you. Four times a year, through the Chopra Meditation Center, Deepak Chopra offers a NEW completely FREE series of 21 guided meditations. I love the programs in this series and use them myself. His newest program will launch on July 16, 2012.
The good news about Chopra’s program is that it’s a simple daily web-accessible recording with each meditation lasting 10-20 minutes.
Whether you’re a seasoned meditator or you’ve heard that it might reduce your stress and increase your sense of well-being, this program has a great deal to offer. For those new to meditation, it eliminates the perceived barrier of “too much silence” by easing you into a healthy new habit through a theme that ties the 21 sessions together with lots of speaking and guidance, very little pure silence.
And, for the seasoned meditator, it’s a great way to expand your options and approach. All meditation paths have merit because at their core they are all about the myriad ways we can hold ourselves in mindfulness. Doing the dishes, walking the dog, feeding the cat — all become meditative when entered into with focus and awareness. We are human beings, not human doings. Just me, just here, just now, just be.
Here’s what The Chopra Center has to say about this series:
“Studies have shown that it takes 21 days of consistent behavior to change a habit or create a new one, such as establishing a regular exercise routine, eating a healthier diet, or taking time each day for self-care. In just 21 days, you can also establish a fulfilling meditation practice that will give you a lifetime of rewards. You may have dipped your toe in the water with limited success, but this time, you will have daily support and guidance that will enable you to move beyond any past obstacles and experience the many gifts and benefits of meditation.”
