Namaste Book Club's Blog



Meditate on This!

Congrats to @yosoykia @bikerunyoga and @bobweisenberg for winning the contests!

Namaste Book Club and our #yogadork friend @gomelissago are holding a Twitter Meditation Month.

We love how yoga has gained acceptance because of its health benefits and know many of our members enjoy the physicality of their practices. But sometimes we all need to remember that part of yoga is spending time looking inward as well. With that in mind, we are encouraging our members to engage in one month of a daily meditation practice. We ask you to tweet the hashtag phrase #ncbmm once daily along with a tweet about your meditation. Everyone can follow the other participants by searching for #ncbmm, which will encourage us all to meditate as well. We plan to collect the names of tweeters who do this for a month and throw them into a yoga mat bag for some prizes.

Winners: Everyone who participates will win by including meditation in their daily lives. We will all take a moment to slow down and look inward.

Yet, two lucky and randomly chosen tweeps will win either (random as well)

1. Your browser may not support display of this image. Yoga Dork T-shirt (donated by @gomelissago) from @yogadork ‘s site http://www.yogadork.com

or

2. A paperback copy of The Blooming of a Lotus: A Rev. Ed. Of the Classic Guided Meditation for Achieving the Miracle of Mindfulness by Thich Nhat Hanh

The contest will run officially from Sept. 10 – Oct. 10 although we hope to make it a perpetual trending topic and practice for all our members. Look inward, take time and meditate on this idea. Thanks to the lovely and fantastic Melissa for getting the meditation timer started for all of us!

  2. Might have to choose something other than #om. There are a lot of other Tweets using that hashmark.
