DEEPAK CHOPRA MEDITATION
www.chopracentermeditation.com

Deepak Chopra & Oprah Winfrey together offer a 21 day meditation practice.  Each session is 18 to 20 minutes long.  There is a theme to the 21 day practice:  at this time it is "Hope in Uncertain Times".  Each day a new sub theme is introduced:   It starts with a 5 minute explanation by Oprah followed by 5 minutes with Deepak where a centering thought and a mantra are offered for the meditation focus and then 10 minutes for the meditation.  During the meditation inspiring music is in the background and a soft bell rings the start and end of the practice.   It is delivered to your email account each day.   If you miss a day you can always catch up on your own time.
