My original goal after my Primordial Sound Meditation Weekend at The Chopra Center last month was 30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes at night.
It is a meditation technique rooted in the Vedic tradition of India revived by Chopra Center co-founders Deepak Chopra and David Simon. If you haven’t heard about the Chopra Center it is in Carlsbad at the La Costa Resort and Spa.
It was more class time than I thought it would be, but then again how long can you meditate and the instruction gave you a chance to understand the origin, benefits, and put together a vision for your practice. If you’re not in the area,  they also have a Free 21 day guided meditation challenge online which starts on February 20th. For more on the guided meditation and what led me to this place check out Project Zen: Finding Stillness. The Art of Ascension is for anyone looking for a means to create a better world, anyone seeking an effective way to dissolve stress, improve health, build a positive outlook of life, explore their spirituality, and ultimately expand their consciousness.
