On Monday, February 20, 2012, The Chopra Center is launching another 21-Day Meditation Challenge, and dedicating it to the memory of co-founder, Dr. David Simon.
This challenge is brand-new and called the “Mind-Body Odyssey.” In the past two years, more than 150,000 people have embraced the free online meditation program.
“We are dedicating this Meditation Challenge to David Simon, who has been my friend, partner, and teacher for more than twenty years,” said best-selling author and spiritual mentor Deepak Chopra, M.D., who co-founded the Chopra Center with David in 1996. “From our personal experience as meditators, and in working with patients, David and I both knew first-hand the power of meditation to balance the body, heal the mind, and transform the spirit. I know David was happy that the Meditation Challenge was opening the doors to many people who previously believed that meditation was too ‘hard’ or ‘mysterious.’
Each day, participants will receive a guided audio meditation and guidance for creating a regular meditation practice. A Meditation Challenge Facebook community is also open to participants who want to share their experiences, ask questions, and connect with other like-minded meditators.
“The upcoming Mind-Body Odyssey is ideal for anyone who is seeking more peace and balance and a lot less stress and ‘dis-ease’ in their lives,” said Chopra, who will lead the meditations, along with the Chopra Center’s lead meditation teacher, davidji, and other master Chopra Center instructors.
Registration and participation is free.
