  • That`s great that you visited the Chopra Center and was inspired to start a meditation practice! If you`re in needed of a little refresher or a boost to that motivation, we recommend the following: work through the videos in our Meditator series, get a copy of Deepak`s new book "Super Brain" to learn ways of focusing the mind, and look into participating in one of the Chopra Center`s online programs. Hope that helps!

  • i need to meditate A LOT with the meditation technique i learned at the chopra center. I clean a lot and love minimalism. Clutter really bothers me, so much so that I have been unable to step into certain ppl`s homes. //I like Alphacat a lot, he`s assertive and is v authentic to me. 108 is a secret Upanishad number lol ;-). how do i resume my good meditation habits where i got motivated to do them like at the chopra center recently?

  • Salaam brother, What am I doing wrong me? I was very much into yoga and meditation as well as working towards healthy and now most of my joints have become inflammed and I have water lungs I was not able to walk our use my hands without pain and now I an on steroid that has helped greatly however it may effect my bones and thin my hair and skin. I feel I am in a worst place them ever before when it comes to this body. My mind it's much calmer and peaceful especially after eating much more raw food. Before this I was practising yoga for my my.joints and now I feel I don't want to do yoga again apart from breathing. I realise the pain was an indication of healing but it was hard to stay of medication. Now I feel I'm have gone against natural healing because I could not just witness the sensations without identifying with. Now my mind is mostly blank and I don't no what to do, I find myself saying I dont no al what has happened to me? I feel so Lost.

  • Natalie`s face is sooooooo beautiful it`s incredible! And whenever I watch Iman I just want to have a conversation with him, he is a very charismatic person...he strikes me as the kind of person who people would just gravitate towards and want to be friends with!! Many thanks to you both!!!

  • i get why Iman didnt do the exercise. i would have sat that one out as well.

    // 2012-11-27 15:40:57 // //
  • i dont think he sat it our for religious reasons..i think he just didnt feel up to all the standing and bowing, kinda like in highschool when you went to gym class on a day you just felt like chilling out and saw that they were going to have you play touch football or some ish, and you`re just like. nah. im not participating today. i`ll just sit over here and watch or read my book. he just was not feeling it. thats least thats what i took from what he said.

  • THE BEST and the easyest thing people can do is to check their THOUGHTS. Monitor your thoughts and switch from negative to positive...

  • Be positive, think positive, connect with nature, enjoy life and get off conspirancies. They are f......with your mind.........Get into spirituality and rediscover your powers. When you relax you become very powerful. Respect all living things on earh, we are connected when you harm them we harm ouselves. Reduce meat, no reason to worry nor to fear.......find the peace inside you and will spread throughout the world.

  • Awesome!

    // 2012-11-27 00:34:36 // //
  • Yes, I did. It was like a short exercise, hehe! I felt great after, much calmer. :-)

    // 2012-11-26 20:25:25 // //
  • So you tried the 108 bows? What was it like?

    // 2012-11-26 17:55:32 // //
  • I find Natalie so open and into everything. I thought it was almost rude to just not do the excersise by the guy

  • seriously lol thank you. apparently I`m a diva now cause I said no... yet I`m sweeping a porch and said I take pride in helping. people are....funny.

    // 2012-11-22 07:29:32 // //
  • Props to Iman.. if he just wasn`t feeling it then why should he do it? This whole series is about PERSONAL discovery & if he PERSONALLY didn`t feel it suited him them he was totally right not to do it :)

  • It is beautiful to see in this video that working in a garden, sweeping dirt together, and doing Zen push ups will give the same result. Doing the dishes concentrated on a spoon or a fork or a cup or whatever gives the same result. It is always about persevering a practice that results in perfect art. The art of living can be found in what your own imagination can come up with...

    // 2012-11-21 22:17:06 // //
  • I can understand you Aphacat for backing out, but meditation doesn`t necessary have something to do with religion. At frist I would have the same reaction as you but then I tried it and it`s just the way to stop thinking, like to get your brain some rest. :-) Just like our body needs some rest, after a good sleep we feel refreshed, it`s the same with our brain, after a good meditation we should feel lighter and refreshed. :-)

    // 2012-11-21 21:47:06 // //
  • Yeah, I could see that. Once your body finds that rhythm. My laziness still would`ve had me sitting out lol.

    // 2012-11-21 20:18:06 // //
  • So how did Nathalie feel after she did the bowing thing? Did it help for her?

    // 2012-11-21 17:41:57 // //
  • Smh at iman for being a DIVA ...... He`s changed so much its crazy ...

    // 2012-11-21 16:57:18 // //
  • Iman can be such a prissy b***h. No reason he should`ve sat out the meditation. Loser.

    // 2012-11-21 13:27:20 // //
  • The video`s naming on Zen (from China, I think) and Iman`s mention of dharma (from India, I think) hint at the immense depth and breadth of the subjects that couldn`t be presented in a single short video. It`s not surprising that Iman & Natalie had some discomfort with specific rituals of devotion, especially ones that are not directly helpful to people. I think of devotion as dedicated caring for a challenged child, or an elderly person with dementia, or (as Iman says) simply doing chores.

    // 2012-11-21 04:09:54 // //
  • The thing is that after doing the same action repeatedly, even when you start feeling tired, the body just keeps going on! Like when you go trekking and synchronize your breathing to the number of steps you take, that way you can actually walk for hours! I haven`t done this exersice per se, but I did take a yoga class where you had to do 108 sun salutations one after the other; I didn`t think I could do them all, but the body is so amazing that once you start, things just flow :)

    // 2012-11-21 03:01:08 // //
  • I agree with Iman too. But I feel like it would be hard to focus on being zen if I`m in pain from constantly bending down. And I`m not even that out of shape.

    // 2012-11-21 01:21:31 // //
  • i absolutely love this series. Learning alot along their journey. What`s the name of the song for this series?

    // 2012-11-21 00:49:52 // //
  • I kinda agree with alphacat on this one.. doing that for 12 mins sounds like alot. but missing out on a great experience
