Meditation


https://chopracentermeditation.com

Oprah and Deepak Chopra are offering a free 21 day meditation experience. Today is day 2. Seems to be worth checking out if you want to try meditation. I have discovered that it is very difficult to sit still for 15 minutes with a quiet mind!

They will let you go back for five days, so you have missed nothing yet if you want to try. Thanks for sharing.

If you think you're too small to make a difference you haven't spent a night with a mosquito

I've been following it and it's great. I've done their meditation programs in the past and they are really inspiring.

Hi Zoomi,
I think the Oprah site is a great place to start. (scroll down to the first post on this topic for the webstie)I have no experience with meditation and was able to jump right in.....
I think it is a very good tool for relaxation.
