Deepak Chopra and Oprah Winfrey do a free, 21-day guided meditation together once or twice a year. The next one starts on Monday, November 2nd and is called "Become what you believe."

Basically, you get an email reminder every day, for 21 days. Each one is 15 minutes long, with about 5 minutes of intro, and then 10 minutes of relaxing music. If you want to reduce stress and/or have always considered meditating but didn't know how, this is a pretty fantastic opportunity. You can buy the series after the fact. And i did buy one, but usually, I just wait for the next freebie. They disappear after 5 days. You can download the app to get right to the daily one. Great way to unwind at bedtime.


Register here, free. Also includes a sample meditation.

I don't know why anyone would charge anything for sharing meditation techniques (even for nonprofit reasons). I understand the argument for server costs, printing books, etc and those are valid reasons to charge $

If you have an open mind, I highly recommend the techniques listed here. Try a few that sound interesting to you and just give it a shot for a few weeks. Actually, I recommend all the techniques listed there.

I think the concept is the same as why people pay to go to yoga classes. You can do yoga at home and look on the Internet for poses, sure. You can work out on your own, too, but people pay for fitness instruction. Anyhow, I like guided meditations over just listening to music and trying to be "in the moment." Gives it more context and relevance. I love this series and thought I'd share. Hope it helps a few folks who want to cut stress and don't know where to start.

Point taken. I'm glad its working out for you. I was providing one way that you can do this for free and not restrict yourself to one particular technique. Every mind works differently and some techniques that I've linked to aren't typical. You can incorporate them 24 x 7 without disturbing your normal routine. Heck, even sex is used as a possible tool for meditation. :-)

I have done this in the past. It is a nice complement to getting into the holidays and being more connected with family/friends and a great jumpstart for the inevitable NY resolutions (I like to call it planning) that occurs at year-end.

The nice thing about this series is that it is free during the trial period. If you really enjoy this particular one you have an option to purchase it.

I would advise waiting a bit and watching it since they usually drop the price a bit and also offer reduced prices on multiple series. I think it is sometime in the middle of the series until a couple of weeks after it is over.

Also, if you are new to meditation, this is a great way to learn a method that is easy and fun. I have been doing these for a while and really enjoy them. It is what got me started in meditation.

Some things to possibly correct from the original post or to clear up:
Each day's meditation is themed and often they build on one another but can easily be used individually as you see fit.

The average time per meditation is close to 20 minutes with around 5 minutes of introduction/guidance at the beginning followed by 10-12 minutes of music. Next there is a 2 or so minute wrap up with talking. A mantra is offered before each meditation to help with focus.

During the Free period, you can access the previous 5 days worth of meditation so on day 6, day 1 falls off. Day 7 you can no longer access days 1 and 2, etc.

I highly recommend trying this series out while it is free.

Also, thank you for posting the additional link to meditation. There is no wrong way to meditate and many options for doing so. All are beneficial.
