Enlightenment is Here (in North County)


Published:

As an author of 55 books, international lecturer, alternative medicine champion, and mystical guide, Deepak Chopra has called for individuals to turn inward and access their true potential.

For over 15 years, the Chopra Center at La Costa Resort and Spa, right in San Diego’s backyard, or “the sweet spot of the universe” as they call it, has served as a vortex for mind-body healing and soul nurturing. This fall, The Chopra Center hosts a Master Series featuring superstar conscious thought experts with powerful messages to deliver… and new books to sell.

SynchroDestiny Workshop
Sept. 6-10

La Costa Resort and Spa, Carlsbad

Mexican-born surgeon-turned-shaman Don Miguel Ruiz is known for penning The Four Agreements, a guide to personal transformation (it remained on The New York Times bestseller list for seven years). Ruiz collaborated with his son Don Jose Ruiz for The Fifth Agreement: A Practical Guide to Self-Mastery. Together with Deepak Chopra, they will explain how to reconnect with the innate wisdom inside, and live life in truth. “Most approaches to success and mastery are about working harder and longer and pushing in a relentless effort to reach a goal,” says Chopra. “At SynchroDestiny, participants learn how to accomplish more by doing less … to stop struggling and burning out, and instead, use the power of intention, awareness, and focus to fulfill their dreams with effortless ease.”

Journey into Healing
Sept. 21–25

La Costa Resort and Spa, Carlsbad

Looking to meet the man in the flesh? In this mind-body workshop, Chopra explains the healing powers of food and herbs, meditation, yoga, and Ayurvedic principles to awaken the natural wellness within. “Ayurveda teaches that health is not just the absence of disease, but a state of well-being that encompasses all aspects of our lives―including our relationships, work, community, creativity, and spiritual practices,” says Chopra. Therapist and best-selling author (Men Are From Mars...), John Gray will advise on communication between men and women. His latest book, Venus on Fire, Mars on Ice, explores the connection between health, hormones, and relationships.

Seduction of Spirit
Oct. 23–29, 2011

Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa, La Jolla

“If we want greater harmony and well-being in our lives and in the world, the first step is transforming our awareness—and the most effective tool for doing so is meditation,” says Chopra. At this workshop, both Chopra Center co-founder and mind-body physician Dr. David Simon and Chopra teach meditation techniques, discuss the power of intentions, and embrace the interconnectivity of life. Participants also explore Chopra’s Seven Spiritual Laws of Success and the path to higher consciousness. Best-selling author and spiritual teacher Marianne Williamson is the special guest.
