SCRIPT Instructions: CREATE your Peer-to-Peer Campaign Between NOVEMBER 29 to December 17.

The Event ends on December 20, 2022.

Here is an example of what you will create. Click on Ana’s Facebook FUNdraiser Example.

Please Email Ana at ana@dallasmeditationcenter.com if you have any questions or need assistance with your FUNdraiser.

Video Preparation:

  • Make sure you have a strong Internet connection.
  • Use a camera phone held vertically or your computer to record yourself. 
  • Find a quiet area to record.
  • Test your lighting and microphone to ensure good audio and video quality. Face a good light source, and do not have your strongest source of light behind you.
  • Record Video with the script (see below) printed out or on a separate screen for you to read from.
  • Read this script aloud with your own name etc inserted and record it on your phone or computer. Play it back and see how you feel about it. Remember: perfectionism is not your friend! We learn by doing things (e.g., cooking a certain dish or playing a sport), not by thinking about those activities. We make mistakes, learn from them, and progress in an iterative process. 
  • You can record yourself or a beautiful nature image like a candle on a table, a vase of flowers, a large tree or a garden. 
  •  When it is how you like it.  Post it on to your facebook fundraiser campaign (click here for instructions)

Read the Welcome Greeting:

Hello and welcome to my fundraiser for Dallas Meditation Center 

I’ve chosen this nonprofit because its mission means a lot to me, and I hope you’ll consider contributing as a way to celebrate with me.  Every little bit will help me reach my goal of $200. I’ve included information about Dallas Meditation Center in the post description.

Today I will be sharing a beginner-friendly guided meditation that lasts about 5 minutes as a moment to experience grounding and compassion in your day. 

Let’s get started!

Face video camera toward what is going to be on the screen during meditation time. 

Read the Meditation: (in a way you would like to hear a guided meditation)

Today I will be sharing a beginner-friendly guided meditation that lasts about 5 minutes as a moment to experience grounding and compassion in your day. 

And I invite you to join me in a simple breathing meditation to ground us in our bodies. 

Find your spot for today’s meditation wherever you’ll be comfortable in relative silence for about 5 minutes. Could be sitting on a mat on the floor or in a chair with your feet touching the ground or lying down or you might even choose to walk mindfully around the room.

Gently slow your activity as we begin the meditation. 

I invite you to close your eyes if you’re comfortable with it. If not, you can soften your gaze.

Let’s begin by gently focusing on our breath. Just notice your breath.

(pause a bit)

There’s no need to change it. Just be aware of it.

This is not about producing any outcome, it’s about noticing what is happening right now.  The attitude that we are trying on is one of curiosity and openness… 

(pause a bit)

Whatever happens, you can always return to the breath.

(pause a bit)

Now, take one deep breath in. And on the out-breath, I invite you to gently release anything that came before this moment with a sigh.

(take a deep breath in and sigh out)

Take another deep breath in. And on the next out-breath, I invite you to gently release anything that came or might come after this moment, with a sigh.

(take a deep breath in and sigh out)

I invite you to take one more deep breath in, and let it go with one last sigh.

This is a chance to be fully present in this moment. 

(take a deep breath in and sigh out)

What a gift this is that we give to ourselves.

Just enjoy this place for a moment right here and right now.

(wait for 2 of your normal breaths)

Breathing in, I know that I am breathing in.

Breathing out, I know that I am breathing out.

(wait for 2 of your normal breaths)

Breathing in, I know that I am breathing in.

Breathing out, I know that I am breathing out.

Now we will enjoy the last few moments of our meditation in silence.

(take three breaths)

So when you’re ready and only when you’re ready invite you to gently open your eyes. Become aware of your surroundings.  You might want to wiggle your fingers and toes. Then stretch some.  

Remember that this is a practice that you can come back to during the day at any time that you want to connect to your breath. 

Thank you for practicing with me today. END
