Dear Spiritual Explorer: I used to hear a lot about Deepak Chopra, but not so much anymore. Julie S., Atlanta, GA
Soul of Healing Vol 1 by Deepak Chopra
Dear Julie: It’s hard to keep a good man down, especially Deepak Chopra, who is still around and bursting forth with new insights of healing. A practicing doctor himself, he has done more for mind-body medicine combining it with spiritual insight than almost any of the New Age doctors. In fact, he has been a long-standing pioneer. I am particularly loving Deepak Chopra’s DVDs Soul of Healing, Volumes 1 and Volume 2. What I love about Deepak Chopra’s healing DVDs and his books is that they not written from some highfalutin scientific place, but in a very down to earth, common-sensical and realistic point of view. When you read Deepak Chopra’s books and watch his DVDs, it is as if he is telling you things you already knew, but they were in the back of your mind. Dr. Deepak Chopra is able to bring to the common spiritual mind the necessity of good health and foremostly a radical way in which to heal what has become dis-eased. As with many Ayurvedic teachers, Deepak Chopra cannot stress enough the interrelationship and intermingling of how society practices and rituals touch upon us as individuals in this earth body. We are not individual, discrete figures in a solipsistic world; we are globally and interconnected as bodies and souls with each other.
Soul of Healing Vol 2 by Deepak Chopra
Dr. Deepak Chopra has been the author of more than 55 books, including 14 bestsellers on mind-body health, quantum mechanics, spirituality and peace. Dr. Deepak Chopra’s books have been published in more than 85 languages. Before establishing the Chopra center, Deepak Chopra served as chief of staff at Boston Regional Medical Center. Deepak Chopra is like a modern Renaissance man, conjoining both the right and brain centers of the body, producing the ultimate man (woman), meaning he or she who is able to access both sides of their brains with both spirituality and rationality. It is almost as if Deepak Chopra’s vision has borne the new paradigm of man/woman.
In these DVDs Deepak Chopra brings to life the premise that healing, wholeness and that which is holy are but the multi-layer expressions of a single underlying reality. He offers a framework for the healing process as well as instructions for meditation stress relief and how to invoke your inner pharmacy using the five senses. A bonus audio CD comes with the DVD.
Let us honor and respect this man who has had a formidable contribution to the elevation of humanity and healing!
