For any beginning meditator, practicing meditation can appear to be somewhat of a challenge. Truth be told, however, it’s one of the simplest of healing practices on the market (and one of the most powerful). All that’s needed to begin is a pillow, a chair back, and a little motivation (there’s even a meditation video game). That said, anyone looking to begin a meditation practice would benefit from considering following a little direction. And there are plenty of people out there to help you to begin your journey.
Of all the meditation teachers around, Deepak Chopra is one of the most well known. A powerhouse in his own right, Chopra has changed the way the West views meditation. No longer seen solely as a undertaking for hippies and potheads, today meditation’s appeal has transcended the masses.
