Interested in becoming part of meditation history? All you have to do is boot up your computer, find a quiet space, and connect to wifi on July 11, at noon EST. It’s that easy.

Following last year’s inaugural Chopra Center 2015 Global Meditation for Compassion event that snagged the Guinness Book of World Records title for the largest global meditation ever (140,000 attendees worldwide), this year they’re estimating that 500,000 people will join via a free live stream to sit in stillness.

“This year’s meditation aims to increase compassion worldwide, creating a movement towards a kinder, more connected culture,” explains modern self-help and mindfulness guru, Gabrielle Bernstein, who’s teaming up with Deepak Chopra of The Chopra Center for the guided meditation and conversation.

“My goal for hosting this event is to create a space where people feel inspired to be more loving and present in every area of their life,” says Bernstein. Plus her hope that it’ll inspire you to begin a daily meditation practice, if you haven’t nailed it yet.

And considering the popularity of increasingly mainstream meditation events like Meditation Summer on Governor’s Island in NYC, and how many women like Ariana Huffington attribute it to their success, it seems like another world record could be in store. —Amy Marturana
