Deepak Chopra Biography
“We dream of a world where
peace, harmony, laughter, and love flow freely,
where life is celebrated and fear is absent.”
— The Chopra Center
In 1999 Time magazine selected Dr. Chopra as one of the Top 100 Icons and Heroes of the Century, describing him as “the poet-prophet of alternative medicine.”
Deepak Chopra left a successful and highly regarded position as chief of staff at The New England Memorial Hospital in Stoneham, Massachusetts in 1985, in order to dedicate his life to expanding the impact and effectiveness of conventional medicine. Today he is nationally recognized in the holistic health field for popularizing Ayurveda, India’s ancient system of natural healing and one of the fastest forms of alternative treatment in America. He has also taught at Tufts and Boston University Medical Schools.
Through his extensive research and teachings, Dr. Chopra has discovered practical and achievable skills that enable people to take control of their lives, remain more robust and youthful as they age, and access the body’s unlimited natural pharmacy — the keys to perfect health and total well-being. Dr. Chopra is the author of several pupular audio CD programs including Magical Mind Magical Body and The Higher Self.
Deepak Chopra currently serves as CEO and founder of The Chopra Center for Well Being in La Jolla, California where he is revolutionizing common wisdom about the crucial connection between body, mind, spirit, and healing. His mission of “bridging the technological miracles of the west with the wisdom of the east” remains his thrust as he and his colleagues conduct public seminars and workshops and provide training for health care professionals around the world. Dr. Chopra is a fellow of the American College of Physicians and a member of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists.
