Known worldwide as the author of over 43 best-selling books, Dr. Chopra has
been translated into dozens of languages with over 20 million copies sold
In Life After Death: The Burden of Proof, Deepak
Chopra’s soon-to-be released new book, he explores one of life’s greatest
mysteries: What happens to us when we die? Sharing insights from his latest
book, Dr. Chopra’s lecture will explore the evidence of an afterlife in
which our most essential self uses the end of life to "pass over" into
another lifetime. According to Dr. Chopra, the intimate relationship between
physical, quantum and non-local reality helps us to understand the mechanics
of the intuitive, creative, visionary and sacred responses. Dr. Chopra’s
lecture will explore the nature of reality and examine the meaning and
purpose of existence.
A highly sought-after keynote speaker, Deepak Chopra
appeared at the inauguration of the State of the World Forum, hosted by
Mikhail Gorbachev and at the Peace and Human Progress Foundation, founded by
the former president of Costa Rica and Nobel Peace Prize winner Oscar Arias.
Esquire Magazine designated him as one of the top ten motivational speakers
in the US. In 1995 he joined Nelson Mandela, Congresswoman Barbara Jordan,
Tom Peters and Garrison Keillor as a recipient of the Toastmasters
International Top Five Outstanding Speakers’ Award.
Deepak Chopra is the Founder/CEO of the Chopra Center
for Well Being in La Jolla, California, where he continues to revolutionize
common wisdom about the crucial connection between mind, body, spirit and
healing. Formerly the Chief of Staff at Boston Regional Medical Center, Dr.
Chopra built a successful endocrinology practice in Boston in the 1980s. In
his medical practice, Chopra realized that there was potential in Western
medicine for the establishment of a new life-giving paradigm, one that
encompassed the fundamental principle that perfect health is more than just
the absence of disease. He began to envision a medical system based upon the
premise that health is a lively state of balance and integration of body,
mind and spirit.
Deepak Chopra serves as the Director of Education at The
Chopra Center for Well Being, which offers training programs in mind-body
medicine. The University of California, San Diego School of Medicine has
granted continuing medical education credits for this program, which
satisfies requirements of the American Medical Association Physician’s
Recognition Award. For more information please visit
