Deepak Chopra: “Inner peacekeeper”

Deepak Chopra is on a mission to bring tranquillity to the world, one person at a time. “There is a part of me that has a romantic notion to disappear,” says Deepak Chopra. He could step hard on the gas in his BMW and just keep going, going. Yes, Chopra admits, sometimes even he longs to escape the responsibilities that come with being a best-selling author, New Age high priest and the human bridge spanning ancient Indian healing and high-tech Western medicine. “I consider myself somebody who offers the tools for inspiration,” the 58-year-old lapsed endocrinologist adds. “I’m just kind

Deepak Chopra tackles world peace in latest book

NEW YORK – It’s an incongruous image: Deepak Chopra, leader of a spiritual movement that has introduced millions of Americans to the benefits of positive thinking, waving a cell phone in the air as he lists its capacities for destruction. “I could be sitting anywhere in the world and move a few electrons from here, and I’ll interfere with the power grid for the entire state of New York,” he said. “Or I’ll interfere with air traffic signals so no plane can land at JFK. What is military power going to do then?” Chopra hasn’t snapped. He’s explaining what he

He’s not worried, though. Chopra is passionate about bringing his philosophy and spiritual ideas to a new audience. “Fire in the Heart: A Spiritual Guide for Teens” (Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, $14.95), released earlier this month, targets children 12 and older. “When I give my lectures and workshops, I see more and more kids coming up and asking me questions,” said Chopra.

Deep, deeper, deepest

What makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise? Deepak Chopra thinks he knows, and he’s sold 20 million books to prove it. David Jenkins meets the good doctor at his Chopra Centre for Well Being in California. It’s heading for 90 degrees in Carlsbad, southern California, and the sun is slanting into Deepak Chopra’s cluttered office at the swish La Costa Resort and Spa. There are manuscripts on the desk, golf bags in a corner, a bust of Socrates on the shelf and, he tells me, his accent still markedly subcontinental despite 30 years in America, “a map of Merlin

The universe is already on your side. Deepak Chopra Research resources on Deepak Chopra’s teachings “People need survival, creativity, achievement, and we’re hardwired for that kind of experience,” says Chopra, the best-selling author and speaker. “Spiritual traditions call it a state of grace, or that God is looking out for them. Others call it good luck. “But it means to align yourself with what the universe is doing, to tap into the
