J Balvin, who has long espoused the benefits of meditation, is partnering with Deepak Chopra to launch an all-new, free 21-day mediation experience.
Renew Yourself: Body, Mind & Spirit, is an audio experience featuring guided mediations, storytelling and self-care wisdom from Chopra and Balvin. The program, which can be accessed at choprameditation or by downloading the app, is available in Spanish and English. It’s comprised of daily 20-minute sessions that begin with “guided wisdom and storytelling” from Balvin, followed by a meditation session.
This is the latest installment of Chopra’s 21-day Meditation Experience, which he launched with Oprah Winfrey in 2013. The franchise currently features 17 programs. Balvin has spoken openly about his struggles with depression and how meditation has served as a powerful tool to combat it.
“What makes mental health universal is that it doesn’t discriminate. It affects all of us. I have struggled with anxiety. I have been depressed. Meditation is one of the many ways that I have dealt with my mental health,” said Balvin in a statement. “And that goes especially for this moment we’re currently experiencing: where money is so tight for many; health is such a question mark on a global level; and the fight for racial justice is more urgent than ever. When our world is in flux, our mental wellbeing is often one of the first things we neglect. But this should not be the case. In fact, it’s in times like these that mindfulness can help us most. This is personal for me.”
“The world is offering us a reset and J Balvin is the perfect partner to help us reach a critical mass of expanded global awareness,” adds Chopra.
