There’s a Meditation Party and Everyone’s Invited!

Oprah and Deepak

Did you know you were born to be happy? That’s what Oprah (yes, THAT Oprah) and Deepak want you to believe. Lucky for you, this dream team is only 3 days into their famed 21-Day Meditation Challenge, all focused on “Expanding Your Happiness.” Try it if you dare to venture into the great beyond, to the greatest vacation of your dreams, to a far away land you’ve always wanted to visit, all without moving a muscle. All you have to do is listen in, get comfortable and breathe. Really, it’s that easy!

I’ve done the challenge a few times now, and can say with confidence it’s an amazing way to get familiar with meditation, especially if you’ve never tried it before. Why do it? Well, for me, meditation has proven to be an incredibly useful tool for getting centered amid the overly fun yet often over-stimulating fast life in NYC. Meditation is an easy way to tune into an oasis of calm wherever you go, because, as they say, wherever you go, there you are.

Thousands of people across the world are participating in the challenge and many are sharing their experiences on the event website. If you feel so inclined, peruse the comments for inspiration, or follow my lead and get everyone you know to try this out. Like anything, the challenge is fun to share with friends—it’s a peace party and everyone’s invited!

Remember the Future

Montauk

That’s what comes to mind when I think of the impact I want to create. I want to work with clients to make their visions and passions a reality. I want to leverage what I’ve learned in corporate advertising to help entrepreneurs and start ups effectively share their message and value with the people they want to reach. I want to live in a world where everyone wins, where everyone can benefit from lifting one another up towards success and fulfillment.

I want to help bridge the resource gap while working for people I believe in and whose energy and drive I feed off of. Nothing fills me more than sharing in the excitement of launching a new idea and innovative strategy for something that could fundamentally change the way the world works. I’ve always been an optimist, sometimes to a painful degree. I believe in people’s absolutely limitless capacity to create a better world, and I clearly see how social media and digital strategy can play a central role in making that world a reality.
