Maybe you can relate to this?
I'm Anthony Cernera and in 2007 I was stressed out, deeply cynical and couldn't sleep. I was drinking too much, gained a lot of weight and started to go into debt. Fortunately, a friend introduced me to a meditation group and my journey began.
I am now a student of Zen Buddhism who meditates daily, has enjoyed its benefits and over the last three years have introduced hundreds of people to Zen Meditation (Zazen.)
Today, I'm a pretty happy guy. Holding onto worry, doubt and anxiety are a thing of the past; they do not rule my life. I find joy in every day, even the tough ones.
I'd like to help you learn what I've learned.
The “21 Day Zen Happiness Project” is designed for people who are serious about making meditation a daily habit and are ready to put in the effort that will create a more positive life.
Week 1: Introduction to Zazen (Zen Meditation)
Week 2: Stress Reduction & Mindfulness
Week 3: Simple Actions for Happiness
The time commitment for the 21 days is meaningful but manageable. Your involvement with the 21 Day Project will be:
Three Weekly Live Video Session: We will meet by Youtube live stream for three Sundays on May 31, June 7 and 14th at 7pm EDT. We start on time and meet for exactly one hour. The sessions are recorded but I encourage you to attend so you can chat with me and your fellow participants.
10 Minute Daily Exercise: Every morning I’ll send a reflection and suggested exercise for that day. Remember, the goal of this program is to form a daily meditation practice. We keep the work to a minimum to help ensure you can participate in the daily exercises.
Regular Partner Check In: Everyone in the class will be paired up with a partner. We learn from and through each other's practice. Our partner supports us and helps us stay accountable to doing the work. We discover we don't have to do this alone. I ask that you commit to check in with your partner by email 2 or 3 times a week.
After these three weeks you will have learned Zazen (Zen Meditation), introduced mindfulness in your daily life, tried a variety of stress reduction tools, developed friendships with fellow meditators, and seen how skillful actions can create happiness for you and others.

I look forward to sharing what I’ve learned with you!
Anthony A. Cernera, M.Ed.
