Free Online Meditation Series

Oprah Winfrey and Dr. Deepak Chopra have again collaborated on another free, 21-day meditation series, which they call "Desire and Destiny."

The series started on Monday, November 11, but I think they make each daily meditation available a full five days after it first appears.

Here are two blurbs from the website:
In our interactive online program we invite you to meditate and journal with us each day to embrace your dreams and desires, expand your understanding of divine purpose, and experience the peace, joy and abundance of living your destiny.
The Chopra Center 21-Day Meditation Challenge® is made available by the Chopra Center for Wellbeing, founded by Dr. Deepak Chopra. It is open to the worldwide public and is free to all who register.
You can access the meditation series here:  You'll be able to register and login with either Facebook or Google+, or you can create your own user name and password.  Please note that this link may be valid for the meditation series only during the 21-day promotional period.

BTW, I tried meditating on Day 1.  I awoke early in the morning, and I started it at about 5am.  But then the cat whom I call "Pee-meister" meowed at my closed bedroom door, wanting to use his private litterbox.  Luckily there's a pause button on the meditation page, so I clicked it in and then got up to let him in.  Then I resumed the meditation.  But not for long.  Pee-meister wanted to leave the room right after he was done1.  Either that, or he was hungry.  Anyway, it was obvious I'd have no peace that morning until the cats and dog were fed, by which time the daughter would need breakfast and a lunch packed for school.

I hope your meditation experience is better than mine!


1 Well, sure, who'd want to stick around after stinking up the room like he did!

I sit for an hour's meditation every morning from 5.00 am. Since I don't have a pet and my son and daughter in law do not come down before 8.00 am, I am not disturbed. I have been meditating for the last 40 years and can vouch for the fact that I am alive and in reasonably good health because of that practice. Irrespective of what system you follow, regular practice will benefit you immensely.

Very good for you, Grand Sir!

My younger self would meditate nearly an hour every day. Otherwise I'd be an irrational fool. Thanks to the meditation, now I am a rational fool. :)

Thank you for your comment!

Thank you for the link to that article, Rummuser. But it does anger me that some folks promote and encourage meditation in order to make a profit from it or to increase worker productivity rather than for altruistic reasons.
