Feb.20.2012… 21 Day meditation challenge is back!

In memory of the passing of Dr. David Simon, Deepak Choprah’s partner in the teaching of limitless possibilities, the Chopra Centre of California is launching a 21 Day Meditation Challenge called the Mind-Body Odyssey.

I had definately shed a tear or a couple more when I had learned of his passing. His presence at a conference I was at was tangible even though his brain tumor only allowed him to be present via sattelite.

He was the pioneer in discovering the mind-body-Heart connection. Deepak and him had worked together for over 20 years and have given birth to many programs, seminars, at the Chopra Centre, written many books and have presented around the world.

His mind was genius and he had a connection to the Universe that was visible.

Here are a few lines from one of his favorite poems by Hafiz.

The Sun Never Says

all this time
the sun never says to the earth,
“You owe me.”
what happens
with a love like that —
It lights the whole world.

So sign on to the Chopra Centre via email or facebook and join a sea of people who will do the meditation challenge to improve the practice in their lives, but will do it in rememberance of Dr. David Simon.

See you in the Gap!

21 Day Meditation Challenge – Day 1

Good day, good day!

It’s the first day of our the 21 Day Meditation provided by the fabulous Chopra Centre in Carlsbad, California.

How was it for you?  Have you taken the opportunity yet today?  I must say, for myself, it was a fond rememberence of a wonderful feeling.  Life is what it is and sometimes our well meaning intentions fall by the way side.  Be it a fitness regime, a new way of eating or in this case, a daily meditation practice.  We start with gusto and then our ‘new way’  loses the wind in it’s sail.  But this is where we can’t be hard on ourselves.  Simply must simply dust ourselves off and get back on that horse!

This is what this is also doing for me.  I incorporated a daily meditation practice into my life this summer after having the good fortune to attend Seduction to Spirit in Whistler hosted by Deepak himself.  After a week intensive, there is no denial about the benefits of a daily meditation practice.  I would have to say it was a transformational experience.  As the months carried on, as dedicated as I tried to be, the time between meditations grew a little longer.  But all is not lost!

When an opportunity like this comes along, you jump on it.  So I have… and I wanted to share it with you.  My hopes are that if you have never had a meditation practice, that this is a nice appetizer to what it offers your spirit.  For those of you who do have a meditation practice, this can be a nice addition to it for the next 3 weeks.

It will address 3 questions in what Deepak calls your Soul Profile.  They are Who Am I? followed by What Do I Want? and finishing with What Is My Dharma (Purpose).   From experience, things really are different at the end of those 3 weeks.

So if you haven’t had the opportunity already today, don’t forget to take the time by the end of your day.  Connect to the Chopra Centre and sign up.  You may do so as well on Facebook.
