New 28-Day Meditation Challenge Begins Today

Today is the first day of the 28-Day Meditation Challenge based on practices found in Sharon Salzberg’s books: Real Happiness, and Real Happiness at Work. I participated in this challenge last year and have made a commitment to participate again this year. I hope you will join me by making your own commitment to 28 days of meditation practice.

Each week of the Meditation Challenge has a different focus:

Week 1: Concentration
Week 2: Mindfulness
Week 3: Lovingkindness & Compassion
Week 4: Bringing the Practice to Our Lives

For those of you who are reluctant to make a commitment to meditate every day, you don’t have to commit to lengthy meditation sesssions in order to participate. On her website and on SoundCloud, Sharon Salzberg provides audio recordings of three brief meditations, each only 2-3 minutes long. Here are the links to those meditations:

Drinking Tea Meditation

Sound Meditation

Touch-Point Meditation
