It’s summer! The sun is shining and by now, maybe you’ve enjoyed some relaxing days at the beach and yummy outdoor BBQs. And yet, do you still have a feeling of being unsettled and a bit stressed out? Are you thinking: “What’s my career path?” “How can I be more accepting in this relationship?” “I would really like to be more patient and appreciative”.
Whatever mindset you are in right now, here are 2 great opportunities to tune in to your most amazing self and join an ever-growing community of like-minded people! Check out these meditation ideas for August 2014:
1) PARTICIPATE IN A WORLDWIDE MEDITATION EVENT AND GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS ATTEMPT
Studies have shown that setting an intention brings you tangibly closer to your goal. What would happen if a critical mass, the tipping point, came together to set the shared intention for peace—within ourselves, and around the world? Let’s find out!
This Friday, August 8 at 12 PM EDT/9 AM PDT, you have the opportunity to be part of history and create the largest synchronized meditation in history.
Deepak Chopra, Gabrielle Bernstein and India Arie are a few people who will be together in Toronto, Canada sharing their voices through guidance, song and meditation. All you need is an internet connection to join virtually and enjoy the power of collective intention!
This event is FREE, so RSVP now!
2) JOIN A FREE 21-DAY GUIDED MEDITATION EXPERIENCE
This is a great way to dip your toe in the water and get started on creating a new daily routine that includes 20 minutes of meditation.
Starting on Monday, August 11, Deepak Chopra and Oprah Winfrey will be hosting complimentary guided meditations every day for 21 days. The theme of this series is “Expanding Your Happiness” – ooh, that sounds pretty awesome!
What to expect:
- Introduction each day by Oprah Winfrey, setting the stage for the topic of the day
- Step by step guided meditation by Deepak Chopra – ideal for beginners
- Each session will last approximately 20 minutes
- Find a comfortable and quiet place to practice
Sign up here to register. Then you can log in anytime that is convenient for you to listen to the pre-recorded session. Miss a day? No problem – the recordings for previous days are available, as well for a limited time. For the most seamless integration, set aside the same time every day to participate – getting up a few minutes earlier in the morning and making this the first thing you do will ensure that life doesn’t get in the way ;-)
Get in touch with your roots and connect with the same activity people were engaging in thousands of years ago. Here’s a fun little info graphic on the history of meditation.
