Waiting rooms turning into Meditating rooms
November 29, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News(Beaverton, Oregon) November 29, 2008, Peaceful Earth, LLC - Across the country, waiting rooms are turning into meditating rooms as part of the Don't Wait-Meditate(TM) campaign of the Meditation Challenge.
“The goal of the Meditation Challenge is to help 100,000 people develop the habit of meditation,” says author/speaker/meditation facilitator and owner of Peaceful Earth, LLC, Lisa Hepner.
“Most people are aware of the benefits of meditation and yet MOST do not have a regular meditation practice. The biggest obstacle people face in developing a regular meditation practice is TIME. They say they don’t have enough time to meditate.”
Yet the average American spends 42-60 minutes a day waiting. People wait for doctor’s appointments or meetings. People wait on hold on the telephone and for computer programs to download. And people wait in line at grocery stores and banks and in traffic.
The Don’t Wait—Meditate ™ pledge invites people to convert waiting time into meditating time. And what better place to start with than places where people wait a lot—WAITING ROOMS.
Hepner has approached holistic health centers all across the United States to participate in the Meditation Challenge by converting their waiting rooms into meditating rooms. Clinics in Oregon, Hepner’s home state, were the first to participate and now centers across the United States are following suit.
If one person, at a time, can commit to turning their waiting time into meditating time, he/she would experience immediate, beneficial results. It is one of the easiest things people can do to develop a regular meditation practice. And you’ll find that you don’t mind waiting, when you use that time to meditate!
As part of the Meditation Challenge people can also participate in 21 day LIVE meditation instruction to develop the habit of meditation in only 15 minutes a day from the comfort of their own home!
The goal is to support 100,000 people in developing the habit of meditation and it can be as simple as converting waiting time into meditating time!
