Oh, I was just assuming I could just start over again once the 21 days were through! I'd better go back through my emails to get the journal prompts now. Here's where you can still sign up: https://www.chopracentermeditation.c

Completed Week 2 of the 21 Day Meditation. Very relaxing and enlightening. If you aren't signed up already, I encourage you to join in (it's FREE) for the last week. Last time they had a Chopra Meditation Challenge they kept the meditations up for a week or so after the 21 days was finished.

A job begun is half done.

I'm glad I heard about the challenge. I'm a long-time meditator but without a good consistent habit, so challenges like this, where they email a reminder, are very helpful to me. Thanks for spreading the word!

This sounds really good - it will be my first "challenge", and I really don't know Chopra much, so it will be informative for me as well.

It also coincides with an in-person "Meditation in Daily Life" course I am beginning on Monday!

It looks good - I'm doing related things, but I like variety, so I'll check it out.

As for the Oprah ranting - we watched her interviews in graduate school counseling class - she makes lots of beginning counselor mistakes - and yes, focused on her and her "stuff" while she is interviewing others.

She's a woman on the journey, so I don't mind so much. She keeps waking up along the way.

There's this thang with internet marketing where you expand your base by pairing up with others and then they may be affiliates - and if you buy stuff from the affiliate site, the affiliate gets $ for it - kinda of a big way of getting passive income. So, don't be surprised if he pairs up with Jack Canfield or others --- doing the same thang.

Yes, you can log on anytime you want. And if you miss a day or 2, you can still do the meditation on a later day. You're not limited to how many you can do in 1 day, though they do remove each meditation 10 days after it's first posted.

I may check it out - It looks like the schedule is flexible and that's a requirement for me.

Yeah, Oprah gets on my nerves too. I tried the November Chopra Challenge as a first time and LOVED it, so I'm giving this one a chance. I'm really hoping Oprah's not a distraction to me. If so, I just won't complete the challenge.

Have done all of the challenges for the past three years, and have even bought some of them, but this one I'll be passing on. Oprah gives me a pain in the ~ ~ ~ big toe. She always has to get her nose into everything. When she interviews people, she does 3/4 of the talking as though she knows it all. Why even invite the person in the first place?

Sorry for my Oprah rant ~ but I was looking forward to the next Chopra meditation challenge. Oh, well, I'll just keep listening to davidji, who I like much better anyway. :)



Namaste,

Peggy

Looking forward to Oprah and Chopra!! I participated in the last one and was actually disappointed when it ended. Even nicer for me this time is that a friend of mine will also be joining in.
