Acknowledged as one of the world’s greatest leaders in the field of mind body medicine and leadership, Deepak Chopra, M.D. continues to transform our understanding of the meaning of health, leadership and healing. Through his creation of The Chopra Center for Well Being in California in 1996, Chopra established a formal vehicle for the expansion of his healing approach using the integration of the best of western medicine with natural healing traditions in both conventional and complementary healing arts. Chopra’s work is changing the way the world views physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social wellness.
Chopra is known as the prolific author of over 45 books, more than 100 audio, video and CD-ROM titles which have been translated into 35 languages with over 20 million copies sold worldwide.
Many know him from his regular work with PBS, which includes The Soul of Healing: Body, Mind, and Soul, Body, Mind and Soul: The Mystery and The Magic, one of the most highly viewed and successful fund-raisers in the history of the network; and The Way of the Wizard, Alchemy and The Crystal Cave.
Deepak Chopra’s popularity as an international presenter and keynote speaker is exemplified in an impressive list of engagements. As the keynote speaker, he appeared at the inauguration of the State of the World Forum, hosted by Mikhail Gorbachev and the Peace and Human Progress Foundation, founded by the former president of Costa Rica and Nobel Peace prizewinner Oscar Arias. Esquire Magazine designated him as one of the top ten motivational speakers in the country; and in 1995, he joined the distinguished company of President Nelson Mandela, Congresswoman Barbara Jordan, Tom Peters and Garrison Keillor as a recipient of the Toastmasters International Top Five Outstanding Speakers award. He serves as an Adjunct Professor at Kellogg School of Management. He regularly mentors corporate and political leaders through his Soul of Leadership workshops.
Through The Chopra Center, Dr. Chopra 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.
