Deepak Chopra and Oprah’s 21 Day Meditation Challenge
I believe there is a reason that the idea of practicing meditation is popping up everywhere around me.
It means that I am supposed to be meditating, and as your mild mannered morning show host, am supposed to be encouraging you to meditate as well. It seems that it is time for this practice to find its way into the mainstream, and I am one media member who will happily hop on the mindful bandwagon.
When I hear that household names like Katy Perry, Jennifer Aniston, Ellen, Oprah, Russel Simmons, Russel Brand and many, many more find refuge from their crazy and successful lives in stillness, it makes me think they may be on to something.
I became interested in it after establishing a yoga practice and feeling the incredible power that breathing mindfully through the poses brought to me. When I need to assume a pose that was difficult, and I breathed properly, it allowed me to do what I thought I couldn't do.
Now, Oprah is ready to take it to the masses with Deepak Chopra and the 21 Day Meditation Challenge.
I signed up, and went to the resources page, where Chopra took me through the basics of meditation. That's great, because while sitting in stillness isn't difficult, it's not second nature.
Will you join me on this 21 day quest toward inner peace?
