Daily Inspiration: The Meditation Initiative

  For the daily inspiration on Meditation Monday, I offer you The Meditation Initiative.

The mission for The Meditation Initiative is simple:

We empower people to change their lives,

by providing free meditation to anyone anywhere


The Meditation Initiative website has a plethora of videos. Below is a video telling their story: (Short-about 3:38)

The Meditation Initiative provides classes to children, adults and seniors to help with stress, anxiety, focus, attention and anger management, while improving emotional wellbeing.

From their website, The Mediation Initiative offers classes to:

…K-12 Public Schools, Colleges, Hospitals, Prisons, Diabetes Patients, HIV Patients, Corporations, Cancer Clinics, Senior Centers, Homeless Teens, Superior Court of CA, Sober Living Homes, United States Military, Wounded Warriors, At-Risk Youth, Victims of Domestic Violence & Human Trafficking and more.



Here is one final video. This is a TedX Talk video of Jeff Zlotnik, founder of The Meditation Initiative, talking to TedX Youth@San Diego discussing the power of presence through meditation. He does a short meditation with them, about 5:30 minutes.

About Tamara Hoerner (1258 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

I'd love to know what you think!
