Minutes Count: Don't Wait--Meditate

Feb 01, 2008 03:00AM

Lisa Hepner of Oregon is intent on helping at least 100,000 of us develop the habit of meditating while waiting. Her nationwide Meditation Challenge counters the argument that people don’t have time to meditate by pointing out that the average American spends 42 to 60 minutes a day waiting for things like appointments, computer downloads, store clerks or traffic to clear.

“Most people are aware of the benefits of meditation, yet most don’t have a regular meditation practice,” observes Hepner, who regularly asks for a show of hands at her presentations. She’s out to change that by urging folks to join in. The initial goal is to convert waiting rooms in holistic centers nationwide into meditating rooms.
