If you go to http://www.insighttimer.com and search for "Dhamma Wheel Meditation Challenge", you should be able to find our group there.
The group is only seven members strong. If you have difficulty finding the group, send either Khalil Bodhi or myself a PM on Dhamma Wheel with your insighttimer username and we will be able to invite you.
kind regards,

Ben

Fantastic, it will be great to have you on board.
Its a small group, for sure, but that doesn't matter if it provides you with the inspiration and motivation that is going to be beneficial to you.
with metta,

Ben

Make that 9

I've joined in with the insight timer app, shout out to Ben for sending me the link.

I think it's absolutely great, and I can already see myself wanting to sit more and more just to increase my stats and unlock some achievements. Can't wait to graph them! Silly isn't it, well only partially since as I like to think there's no such thing as bad meditation.

Meditating in the morning before work I've never been able to do, also too tempting to have an extra hour in bed :zzz:

So thats my challenge :)

Good luck with that, Craig. It may be as simple as setting the alarm a little earlier.
All the best,

I have the same problem Craig, so I put the alarm clock out somewhere it forces me out of bed to turn it off.
That, and I have an iphone and I set four or five alarms that go off within a minute of each other. It usually does the trick.

Dear all,

This is another reminder of the Dhamma Wheel Meditation Challenge group on Insighttimer.com. http://www.insighttimer.com
We have a small group of practitioners registered with the group at Insighttimer. One of the things I like about the timer is that it will let you know when other group members or "friends" are meditating at the same time, allowing one to send a message of support which can be picked up at the end of the session. For those of you who live far away from a sangha, it may provide that additional level of support to help you keep your meditation practice regular.
kind regards,

Ben

I couldn't agree more. The app and our group have been instrumental in getting me to my cushion every day for some time now.

As of July 20th 2013, I just passed my eighth year keeping a meditation log (no apps, just several small notebooks and a ball point pen ) and having sat at least once a day, every day of those 8 years.

One of the best decisions of my life.
