Let’s Meditate Together
March 15-April 15, 2019

March 15 - April 15 we are using small accountability groups to develop the daily habit of meditation for those who do not have a regular practice. Each day after meditating, you will text your 3-person accountability group that you meditated.

This month of meditation is sponsored by Rachel Wojcicki, recent Ahimsa teacher training grad, workstudy, and co-leader of the Womens Retreat Tower Hill (@womensretreattowerhill). Rachel will be leading weekly facebook and instagram videos throughout the meditation month, so keep an eye on our social pages for those. See below for information on Rachel’s upcoming yoga retreat at Warren Dunes State Park May 17-19 with Ahimsa instructors Samantha Johnsen, Katie Van Eyndt, and Marijka Munoz.

How does it work?

  1. Fill out the survey below with your name, email address, and phone number by Monday, March 11 11:59pm CST.

  2. We will group you with 2 other students and send your small group an initial email with your contact phone numbers on Wednesday, March 13.

  3. One of you starts a text thread and voila - you have your accountability group!

  4. Each day after you meditate, text the group thread. This will hold yourself accountable and develop a consistent practice.


What if I don’t live in the area?

It doesn’t matter! This is a text message based accountability group. Most groups will never meet in person.


What does it cost?

Nothing, this is completely free. We are doing this because we have found it to be a helpful way to develop a daily meditation habit.


What if I don’t know how to meditate?

You are not alone! Use the techniques and resources below to help you get started. We find it’s best to use guided meditations if you are completely new to meditation.
