In April 2020, in the middle of the lockdown, Annette Frier receives an invitation via WhatsApp to a 21-day meditation challenge. It is an initiative by Deepak Chopra and Oprah Winfrey to create and amplify abundance worldwide. “This is my opportunity to finally learn how to breathe properly,” Annette thinks and accepts the challenge. It’s going great – until on day five, she is supposed to found her own group. Hmm, chain letters, snowball system, you get the idea. But the motley WhatsApp group grows into a sometimes insightful, sometimes hilarious conversation about the meaning and ridiculousness of life, about daily failures and shared growth. In this dramatic reading, Christoph Chassée, Dan Enderer, Jessica Kosmalla, Tanya Neufeldt, Tanja Schleiff, Victor Schefé, Kerrin Wunderlich and Annette Frier prove that a WhatsApp chat can be a new literary genre. And they wish you good luck on your path to enlightenment!
