- Update: This post is on the first meditation challenge Deepak and Oprah did in November of 2012 on “Abundance”. For those of you looking to join in on their new August meditation series on “Expanding your Happiness” click on picture below to go to Chopra Center website and sign up.
I attended the Vancouver Seeds event this last weekend (which was an amazing event) and had the good fortune to see Deepak Chopra speak. At the end of his talk, Deepak mentioned that he will be hosting an online meditation class with Oprah Winfrey starting November 5th. The class will last 21 days and there will be a different meditation to do each day. The class focuses on attracting abundance in your life through meditation. You will be e-mailed a link for a daily guided meditation video to watch. You also will have a private online journal you can use to record your thoughts and progress as you complete the 21-day course. You can register for the class through this link: http://www.oprah.com/packages/deepak-chopra.html
Deepak is a wonderful teacher if you want to learn how to meditate. In developing my own meditation practice over the years, I’ve watched several videos and talks on meditation by him and read several of his books. He suggests starting to meditate even for 1 minute and building from there. This is a wonderful way to bring inner peace into your life. Meditation is an excellent destressor and mood balancer, which can calm you and give you perspective in your life. A wonderful way to start or end your day. Try it for 21 days (they are calling it a challenge). Maybe get a friend or family member to sign up with you. I am sure this is designed for both those new to meditation and those who are more experienced. You will find Deepak’s voice and presence very calming and relaxing. If you’ve ever thought of trying meditation, this is the perfect opportunity. You will not believe what an amazing influence meditation can be in your life. Sign up!!!
Here’s what Deepak has to say about the class:
I want to be the first to congratulate you on giving yourself the experience of meditation, and for your decision to join us for the Creating Abundance Chopra Center 21-Day Meditation Challenge™.
Meditation has completely transformed my life, so I’ve made it a daily practice for more than 40 years now. It’s my sincere privilege to share this time-honored practice with you so you can begin to enjoy the infinite benefits of meditation in all areas of your life.
I’m especially eager to begin this next all-new challenge with you, Creating Abundance. I will be your guide each day, as we journey to an authentic abundance consciousness. We’ll discover what true abundance is, the source from which it springs, how consciousness and the mind affect its flow, and that each and every one of us is worthy and deserving of an abundant life. You will learn how to leverage the Seven Spiritual Laws of Success to manifest your heartfelt intentions and live a more abundant life, attracting more comfort and ease, joy, peace, love, or anything you desire.
The challenge begins on Monday, November 5, 2012. You will receive an email from the 21-Day Meditation Challenge with access instructions on Day One. In the meantime, I encourage you to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your contact list to ensure all our emails reach your inbox safely.
I also encourage you to invite your friends and loved ones to join you for this life-changing experience. You will be sharing what I consider to be an invaluable gift—the gift of meditation—which will infinitely enrich the lives of those you love and enhance your relationships with them.
I look forward to this challenge with great anticipation, knowing that together we are sharing an experience of expanded consciousness that is increasing peace, joy, love, and abundance throughout the world.
Much gratitude to Deepak and Oprah for offering this class to the masses. What a gift to the people that participate and the Universe!
