My mother and I believe meditation is an extension of healthy living combined with exercise, a clean diet, and plenty of sleep. We believe meditation is a wonderful way to start and end the day. When we lived down the street from one another we used to get together and meditate before we exercised. It was our time to connect.
However, after we moved apart we were unable to continue the practice. Until recently, we hadn't meditated together for several years. Now Skype makes it easy for us to meditate each morning as if we are in the same room together. It's a lovely solution to our distance problem and a fabulous use of technology. I've read of other people using Skype to stay in touch in novel ways. One woman sets her computer up at the end of her dining table, and her mother does the same thing at her end, and she schedules dinner together on Sundays. What a lovely way to use technology to stay close. I'm sure there are more examples out there. Perhaps, you can think of your own unique way to stay close using video chat.
