Returning Early 2019
Have you ever:
Wanted to meditate but didn’t because you didn’t know where to start?
Started to meditate but felt like you had no support?
Tried using an app, but wanted to ask a real person questions?
Meditation can be one of the most rewarding undertakings that can effect all aspects of your life, however, often people come to meditation because they know they need it, but don’t realize what is ahead of them. There are many preconceived ideas, challenges, pitfalls, and questions that arise at various stages of meditation, and making it work can be challenging. This new meditation challenge has been created to solve these problems.
Over many years, the number one reason I've observed for people giving up or struggling with their meditation practice is due to a lack of support. When faced with questions and challenges they had no one with a depth of experience to help them. In recognizing this, I wanted to create a format that would support people in their journey to succeed at meditation.
In my own experience, I did have support. I had teachers who were very experienced and knew how to support me, while also being surrounded by other students. All of this created a community of support that both held me and pushed me, and I'm extremely grateful to have had these people in my life at that time. Of course the only one who made the meditation work was myself, I put in the time to do the practice, but without this support it would have been easy to become lost in ineffective meditations that took me no where and give up when resistance was coming up.
I know how much meditation can change people’s lives. It has been a major part of my life for the last 16 years, and I am dedicated to helping people live life with greater inner peace and clarity. I do this because experiences like this are life changing and also because I know the effects of meditation go beyond the individual who meditates, impacting the lives of family, friends and workmates.

Why this challenge?
This challenge will be conducted online, so can be done in the convenience of your own home. You do not need to spend extra time travelling to a studio.
As this is online, you can participate from anywhere in the world, however please keep in mind all live meetings and meditations are Vancouver Pacific Standard Time.
I offer 16 years of experience in the field of meditation, consciousness and self development. Over this time I have developed a very intuitive and effective approach to helping individuals experience greater peace, clarity and purpose in their lives through meditation and mindfulness.
This challenge is live. It will not be pre-recorded meditations sent to you by automated email response. This is not an app.
I will personally be leading all meditations and meetings.
The purpose behind this meditation challenge is for you to be fully supported. All meditations, group meetings and Q&As will be live. You will also be part of a Facebook group to ask questions or share experiences in between live calls.
If for some reason you cannot make a live meditation or meeting, you will have access to the recordings in a members section of Peacekeeper Project website.
Community, or fellowship, is created through a sharing of a common goal or aspiration. These live online meditations, group meetings and Q&As are an opportunity to join a growing community of like minded individuals.
Doing it on your own can be tough. Within this community you will not only have the support from myself but from the whole group.
Having strategies to help you succeed in your meditation journey are necessary. Accountability ensures you get the support and challenge you need to achieve success.
To ensure the greatest level of support the numbers for the group are limited. This ensures you will not be lost in the crowd, and attention can be given to everyone. The small numbers also means the group is able to cultivate a deeper bond.
The Challenge Details
Your challenge: At least 15 minutes of meditation per day for the duration of this challenge.
This will be supported by:
- One live online group meeting per week
- Two live online guided meditations per week
- Private FB group - for support between live events
- Live meetings and meditations are recorded and available in a member area. If for some reason you can't make the live event you can listen to it in your own time.
I believe building a successful meditation practice requires you to be able to meditate on your own. For the days there are not live meditations, you can either use the previously recorded meditations or follow the technique by yourself.
Mondays evenings, 7:00 - 8:00pm
Tuesday and Friday mornings, 7:00 - 7:30am
Vancouver Pacific Standard Time.
Outside of scheduled meetings and meditations you will have access to a private Facebook Group where you can ask questions or share experiences.
"I have been hearing for years that meditation will help you take things to the next level. Before Ben’s Meditation challenge I struggled to meditate and not fall asleep. After the meditation challenge I have so much more awareness and am able to meditate. The tools that Ben taught across the challenged have had positive changes in my life and allowed me to be still. My favourite example of this is while rocking my son to sleep, he was screaming, and rather than being frustrated I was able to be calm and present. My calmness and presents got him to stop crying and he went to sleep. Meditation can help you take your life to the next level. The Peacekeeper Project’s Meditation challenge can help you take a step forward."
