Oprah Winfrey, Deepak Chopra Launch 8th Meditation Experience
The 21-day "Manifesting Grace Through Gratitude" kicks off Monday.
Oprah Winfrey has once again teamed up with Dr. Deepak Chopra for a new meditation experience dubbed "Manifesting Grace Through Gratitude."
Registration for the duo's eighth "Oprah & Deepak 21-Day Meditation Experience" opens Monday at Oprah.com/meditation. The free 21-day meditation experience "will help participants stop chasing the things they think they need to be happy and start finding true joy in each present moment. Simultaneously, it aims to help alleviate stress and revitalize mind, body and spirit."
Originally launched in 2013, the "Oprah & Deepak 21-Day Meditation Experience" now features a catalog of eight different programs with more than 4.1 million participants from hundreds of countries around the globe.
The program consists of 20-minute audio meditation each day — meditations are voiced by Winfrey and Chopra — and a series of "thought-provoking reflection questions designed to anchor the teachings with a centering thought and mantra." A private, interactive journal feature allows participants to record and view their progress. The meditations are accessible from a tablet, computer or the mobile companion app available in iTunes or Google Play.
"This meditation experience will be a heartfelt journey of discovering the grace already present in our lives through the eyes of gratitude," Chopra said.
Below is a week-by-week breakdown:
Week One: How Gratitude Changes Our Life
Week one will focus on transformation. Meditations feature learning about the power of positive emotions, being grateful for your life, finding and connecting with the source of your gratitude and bringing it alive in the present.
Week Two: Beyond Emotion to Higher Gratitude
Week two delves deeper into the nature and meaning of gratitude, highlighting the importance of the mind-body connection. These lessons will focus on changing your personal reality and tapping into the power of gratefulness in all aspects of your life.
Week Three: Complete Life in Gratitude
The third week focuses on transforming your life into a state of grace — an effortless, more enjoyable and more vibrant way of life. This final week of mediations will teach participants to open their hearts and minds and start on a path to accepting and embracing not only the good that life has to offer, but recognizing the resources and support that are there when we are met with challenges.
"Oprah & Deepak's 21-Day Meditation Experience" is co-produced by Harpo Studios and The Chopra Center and inspired by popular OWN programs.
