perfect place to delve within. I was on vacation with great friends, on a gorgeous island with idyllic August weather, so hell yea I was able to relax! That lightness and calm feeling that one experiences in meditation is something I would later learn is always available to me, no matter the weather or longitude. Not just me to you too! I promise.
Since then, I've tried to meditate once a day, though I confess, sometimes I go days without it.
Enter Deepak Chopra. Every season, the The Chopra Center offers a free 21-day mediation challenge. Chopra's 21 Day Summer Meditation Challenge is for all--beginners, experts or people in between. My favorite teacher is David Ji--he is extraordinary! Wait till you hear his deep calming voice and beautiful words. The challenge involves only a 15 minute commitment every day for three weeks straight. Thousands from around the globe participate so it's simultaneously an individual, communal, and global experience.
Why 21-days? Experts say that if you do something consistently for 21 days it becomes part of your life which is why the great people at the California-based wellness center offer the challenge for 21 days. Meditation, which studies show has a number of benefits, including warding off signs of aging, is a great habit to take up.
I'm up for a FREE summer challenge. Are you? It starts on Monday, August 15th! Sign up today! See you in the gap.
