Why do we feel the way we feel? How do our thoughts and emotions affect our health? Are our bodies and minds distinct from one another or do they function together as parts of an interconnected system? In this groundbreaking audiobook, Candace Pert -- a neuroscientist whose extraordinary career began with her 1972 discovery of the opiate receptor -- provides startling and decisive answers to these and other challenging questions that scientists and philosophers have pondered for centuries. From explaining the scientific basis of popular wisdom about phenomena like "gut feelings" to making comprehensible recent discoveries in cancer and AIDS research,Molecules of Emotionis an intellectual adventure of the highest order. Yet the journey Pert takes us on is one of personal as well as scientific discovery. Woven into her lucid explanations of the science underlying her work is the remarkable story of how -- faced with personal and professional obstacles -- she has grown as a woman and a mother, and how her personal and spiritual development has led to breakthroughs in her remarkable career. Molecules of Emotionis a landmark work. Full of insight and wisdom, it is among those rare audiobooks which possess the power to change the way we see the world and ourselves.
Historical fiction story about the life of Muhammad. Born into the factious world of war-torn Arabia, Muhammad's life is a gripping and inspiring story of one man's tireless fight for unity and peace. In a world where greed and injustice ruled, Muhammad created change by affecting hearts and minds. Just as the story of Jesus embodies the message of Christianity, Muhammad's life reveals the core of Islam. Deepak Chopra shares the life of Muhammad as never before, putting his teachings in a new light. Following the historical record but offering a unique perspective, Chopra's Muhammad captures the historical prophet but more importantly shows us why his teachings are more important now than ever before.
Join Deepak Chopra on a wondrous journey. . . "The Path to Love." Philosophical, inspiring, and ultimately very practical, The Path to Love is a book that can change lives as it invites the spirit to work its wonders on the most complex and richly rewarding terrain of all: the human heart.From the Trade Paperback edition.
Deepak Chopra's passionate new book, Peace Is the Way, was inspired by a saying from Mahatma Gandhi: "There is no way to peace. Peace is the way." In a world where every path to peace has proved futile, the one strategy that hasn't been tried is the way of peace itself. "We must not bring one war to an end, or thirty," Chopra tells us, "but the idea of war itself."How can this be done?By facing the truth that war is satisfying, and then substituting new satisfactions so that violence is no longer appealing. "War has become a habit. We reach for it the way a chain smoker reaches for a cigarette, promising to quit but somehow never kicking the habit." But Chopra tells us that peace has its own power, and our task now is to direct that power and multiply it one person at a time. Behind the numbing headlines of violence running out of control there are unmistakable signs of a change--Chopra believes that a majority of people are ready to see an end to war. "Right now 23 million soldiers serve in armies around the world. Can't we find ten times that number who will dedicate themselves to peace? A hundred times?"Peace Is the Way challenges each of us to take the next leap in personal evolution. "You aren't asked to be a saint, or to give up any belief. You are only asked to stop reacting out of fear, to change your allegiance from violence to peace." In a practical seven-step program, Chopra shows the reader how to become a true peacemaker. "Violence may be innate in human nature, but so is its opposite: love. The next stage of humanity, the leap which we are poised to take, will be guided by the force of that love." This is more than a hope or an aspiration. It is a new way of being in the world, giving each individual the power to end war in our time.From the Hardcover edition.

Here is an extraordinary new approach to healing by an extraordinary physician-writer -- a book filled with the mystery, wonder, and hope of people who have experienced seemingly miraculous recoveries from cancer and other serious illnesses.Dr. Deepak Chopra, a respected New England endocrinologist, began his search for answers when he saw patients in his own practice who completely recovered after being given only a few months to live. In the mid-1980's he returned to his native India to explore Aruyveda, humanities most ancient healing tradition. Now he has brought together the current research of Wetern medicine, neuoscience, and physics with the insights of Ayurvedic theory to show that the human body is controlled by a "network of intelligence" grounded in quantum reality. Not a superficial psychological state, this intelligence lies deep enough to change the basic pattenrs that design our physiology -- with the potential to defeat cancer, heart disease, and even aging itself. in this inspiring and pioneering work, Dr. Chopra offers us both a fascinating intellectual journey and a deeply moving chronicle of hope and healing.From the Trade Paperback edition.

"La finalidad de la vida es la expansión de la felicidad", nos dice Chopra. Pero en el exigente mundo de hoy, lograr esta meta puede parecer difícil, si no completamente fuera de nuestro alcance. La sociedad refuerza la creencia de que la satisfacción es el resultado del éxito, la riqueza y las buenas relaciones. Sin embargo, Chopra nos enseña que lo contrario es cierto: todo el éxito en la vida es el producto de la felicidad, no la causa.Entonces, ¿cuál es la causa? La receta de la felicidad comparte los principios espirituales de una vida basada en el yo verdadero que existe en cada uno de nosotros, un sentido que se encuentra más allá del ir y venir de la vida diaria, y unos simples ejercicios a través de los que podremos eliminar las causas de la infelicidad y alcanzar un nivel de alegría más profundo. Y después de que todas las vías hacia la felicidad se hayan explorado, sólo quedará una ruta: el viaje hacia la iluminación. En La receta de la felicidad, el intimidante reto de encontrar la felicidad se convierte accesible paso a paso.
TRASCIENDE LOS OBSTÁCULOS QUE AFECTAN A TU CUERPO Y A TU ESPÍRITU 15 años después de su gran clásico Cuerpos sin edad, mentes sin tiempo, Deepak Chopra revisa el "milagro olvidado"--la capacidad infinita de renovación y cambio del ser humano. "Tu cuerpo físico es una ficción" nos dice Chopra. Cada célula está compuesta de dos elementos básicos: conciencia y energía. Aquí aprenderás a aprovechar esos elementos para cambiar los patrones de energía distorsionados que son la causa de las enfermedades y el envejecimiento. Pero la transformación no trata solo del cuerpo; debe incorporar también el alma. El alma --aparentemente invisible, distante, y apartada del mundo material-- en realidad crea al cuerpo. Y solo al llegar a ella alcanzarás tu máximo potencial, y conseguirás mayor percepción, inteligencia y creatividad en todos los aspectos de tu vida. Reinventar el cuerpo, resucitar el alma ofrece 10 pasos --cinco para el cuerpo y cinco para el alma-- que nos llevarán a la auto transformación. Con su estilo claro y accesible, Chopra nos invita a vivir con él los milagros que suceden cuando conectamos el cuerpo directamente a los maravillosos misterios que dan sentido y significado a la vida-- directamente al alma.From the Trade Paperback edition.
Fifteen years after his #1 New York Times bestseller, Ageless Body, Timeless Mind, Deepak Chopra revisits "the forgotten miracle"-the body's infinite capacity for change and renewal. You cannot take advantage of this miracle, Chopra says, unless you are willing to completely reinvent your body, transforming it from a material object to a dynamic, flowing process. "Your physical body is a fiction," Chopra contends. Every cell is made up of two invisible ingredients: awareness and energy.Using Chopra's ten steps to wholeness, you can harness those basic elements to change the distorted energy patterns that are the root cause of aging, infirmity, and disease.Transformation can't stop with the body, however; it must involve the soul. The soul-seemingly invisible, aloof, and apart from the material world-actually creates the body. Only by going to the level of the soul will you access your full potential, bringing more intelligence, creativity, and awareness into every aspect of your life.Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul delivers ten breakthroughs-five for the body, five for the soul-that lead to self-transformation. In clear, accessible terms, Chopra shows us how to commit ourselves to deeper awareness, focus on relationships instead of consumption, embrace every day as a new world, and transcend the obstacles that afflict body and mind.Deepak Chopra has inspired millions with his profound teachings over the years. His bestselling books have explored the mind/body connection and the power of spirit. With his latest book, he invites you to experience with him the miracles that unfold when we connect the body directly to the awesome mysteries that give life meaning-directly to the soul. When you have completed this journey, after reinventing your body and resurrecting your soul, the ecstasy of true wholeness becomes possible for the very first time.From the Hardcover edition.

Given the volatile state of the world, it is no coincidence that superheroes have captured our imagination like never before. Everywhere you look, superheroes have broken free from their comic book pages and become a dynamic aspect of the culture at large. Superheroes are imbued with magical powers that challenge the laws of space and time, offering us a vision of a world that can change. By exploring the boundaries of energy and awareness, allowing us to better understand ourselves and our potential, superheroes can help us save the planet in a very real way. From Buddha's search for truth to Batman's struggle with his dark side, from Wolverine exposing his greatest fears to Hanuman's divine gifts of inspiration, New York Times bestselling author Deepak Chopra with his son Gotham, author and cofounder of Liquid Comics, decode the seven essential laws that govern the realm of superheroes both ancient and modern, cosmic and commercial, and explain their relevance, importance, and perhaps most critically, how to apply them to our daily lives. These seven new transformative laws will help us all uncover greater happiness, courage, balance, creativity, compassion, and purpose in our lives. Each law has the potential to awaken us to our own superpowers and together these laws offer the potential to change our lives and the world around us.
Deepak Chopra, Debbie Ford, and Marianne -New York Times bestselling authors and internationally acclaimed teachers-have joined together to share their knowledge on one of the most crucial obstacles to happiness we face-the shadow. These three luminaries, each with a signature approach, bring to light the parts of ourselves we deny but that still direct our life. For it is only when we embrace our shadow that we discover the gifts of our authentic nature. The shadow exists within all of us. It is a part of us and yet we spend most of our life running from it. But far from being scary, our dark side holds the promise of a better, more fulfilling life. Our shadow makes itself known every day. It is the reason we get furious over a friend showing up ten minutes late, yell at our parents or kids when they have done nothing wrong, and sabotage our own success at the worst possible time. Until we are able to embrace our dualistic nature, we will continue to hurt ourselves and those closest to us and fall short of our potential. Combining the wisdom of three experts, The Shadow Effect is a practical and profound guide to discovering the gifts of our shadow. These three authors powerfully pierce the veil of our unclaimed self, releasing us from the past and propelling us on a journey to wholeness. No longer living a half life, we are capable of achieving our dreams and reclaiming the happiness that is our birthright.
No love is more consuming and passionate than that one has for God. And nothing is more beautiful than that love when it is expressed as poetry. In The Soul in Love, Deepak Chopra presents us with five great writers whose lives span seven centuries: Rumi, the sublime Persian poet who sang out his verses in ecstatic longing for God; Mirabai, an Indian princess who walked away from her life of privilege to be closer to her Dark Lord; Kabir, born to a lowly family of weavers in India, only to rise to the heights of wisdom and song; Hafiz, an Islamic master who reveled in the joys of the flesh as a way to the soul; and Tagore, the celebrated modern Indian writer who first made the West aware of the richness of Eastern devotional poetry. Returning to the theme that inspired The Love Poems of Rumi and On the Shores of Eternity, Deepak Chopra gives us a rapturous experience of human passion, inspired by the soul's yearning for the sacred source of love. "Immortal love doesn't need poetry. However, it is our good fortune that some of the God-intoxicated have written words that permit access into their ecstatic world. Particularly in the East, in that exotically woven belt of lands that stretches from Arabia to the Indian subcontinent, poets and saints are never far apart. In this collection I have gathered a few of the most revered, beginning in the medieval period and extending to this century. The name of Rumi has gathered much luster recently, but the others -- Kabir, Hafiz, Tagore, and Mirabai -- deserve just as much recognition. In their own cultures they stand as beacons of inspiration, largely because the common people have taken them into their hearts and continue joyfully to sing their words to this very day." -- From the Introduction
Leadership is the most crucial choice one can make--it is the decision to step out of darkness into the light. Bestselling author and spiritual guide Deepak Chopra invites you to become the kind of leader most needed today: a leader with vision who can make that vision real. Chopra has been teaching leadership to CEOs and other top executives for eight years, and the path outlined in The Soul of Leadership applies to any business, but the same principles are relevant in every community and area of life, from family and home to school, place of worship, and neighborhood. "At the deepest level," Chopra writes, "a leader is the symbolic soul of a group." With clear, practical steps, you are led through the crucial skills outlined in the acronym L-E-A-D-E-R-S:L = Look and ListenE = Emotional BondingA = AwarenessD = DoingE = EmpowermentR = ResponsibilityS = Synchronicity After identifying your own soul profile and the core values you want to develop, you can use these seven skills to allow your potential for greatness to emerge. Only from the level of the soul, Chopra contends, are great leaders created. Once that connectionis made, you have unlimited access to the most vital qualities a leader can possess: creativity, intelligence, organizing power, and love. The Soul of Leadership aims to fill the most critical void in contemporary life, the void of enlightened leaders. "You can be such a leader," Chopra promises. "The path is open to you. The only requirement is that you learn to listen to your inner guide." In this unique handbook you are shown how to do just that, in words as practical as they are uplifting. The future is unfolding at this very minute, and the choice to lead it lies with each of us, here and now.From the Hardcover edition.
Life is full of challenges, both big and small. Spirituality is here to offer solutions. Over the course of his career as physician, teacher, and bestselling author, Deepak Chopra has received thousands of questions from people facing every kind of challenge. They have asked how to lead more fulfilling lives, how to overcome relationship problems and personal obstacles. What's the best way to deal with a passive-aggressive friend? Can a stagnant career be jump-started? In a world full of distractions and stress, how does one find time for meditation? Hidden among all of these questions are answers waiting to be uncovered. In this groundbreaking book, Chopra shows you how to expand your awareness, which is the key to the confusion and conflict we all face. "The secret is that the level of the problem is never the level of the solution," he writes. By rising to the level of the solution in your own awareness, you can transform obstacles into opportunities. Chopra leads the reader to what he calls "the true self," where peace, clarity, and wisdom serve as guides in times of crisis. For Chopra, spirituality is primarily about consciousness, not about religious dogma or relying on the conventional notion of God. "There is no greater power for success and personal growth than your own awareness." With practical insight, Spiritual Solutions provides the tools and strategies to enable you to meet life's challenges from within and to experience a sense of genuine fulfillment and purpose.
As elegant as his bestselling How to Know God and as practical as his phenomenal The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, this groundbreaking new book from Deepak Chopra contains a dramatic premise: Not only are everyday coincidences meaningful, they actually provide us with glimpses of the field of infinite possibilities that lies at the heart of all things. By gaining access to this wellspring of creation, we can literally rewrite our destinies in any way we wish.From this realm of pure potential we are connected to everything that exists and everything that is yet to come. "Coincidences" can then be recognized as containing precious clues about particular facets of our lives that require our attention. As you become more aware of coincidences and their meanings, you begin to connect more and more with the underlying field of infinite possibilities. This is when the magic begins. This is when you achieve the spontaneous fulfillment of desire.At a time when world events may leave us feeling especially insignificant and vulnerable, Deepak Chopra restores our awareness of the awesome powers within us. And through specific principles and exercises he provides the tools with which to create the magnificent, miraculous life that is our birthright.From the Hardcover edition.

"Adults squirm when the big questions come up, especially the big spiritual ones. They don't want their kids to worry, so they give answers that all say one thing: 'Don't worry. It's all okay.' "And yet the big questions still keep coming up. At every age we all need to know what life is really all about. Not just on the surface, but deep down. "Teenagers are no exception. They deserve a spiritual life all their own. One that offers the kind of comfort we hope to give our children, but is different at the same time. More full of ideas. More mature. More fitting for the whole wide future that lies ahead. "That's what I've tried to do in this book, as fully and as honestly as possible." -- Deepak Chopra
¿Quién es Jesucristo?En El tercer Jesús, Deepak Chopra, el líder espiritual y autor de grandes éxitos literarios, nos da una respuesta que, además de edificante, desafía las creencias actuales y da una perspectiva nueva de lo que Jesús puede enseñarnos a todos.No hay un solo Jesús, escribe Chopra, sino tres. En primer lugar, hay un Jesús histórico, el hombre de carne y hueso que vivió hace dos mil años y cuyas enseñanzas constituyen la base de la teología y del pensamiento cristianos. El segundo Jesús es el hijo de Dios, que ha llegado a encarnar una religión institucionalizada con devotos creyentes. Y detrás de esas dos imágenes se encuentra el tercer Jesús, el Cristo cósmico, el guía espiritual cuyas enseñanzas se dirigen a toda la humanidad. Es el Jesús que habla a los individuos que desean encontrar a Dios como experiencia personal y alcanzar la iluminación espiritual.Al interpretar el Nuevo Testamento de una nueva manera, y al volver a lo esencial del mensaje de Jesús, El tercer Jesús puede realmente transformar nuestras vidas y a la humanidad.From the Trade Paperback edition.
Who is Jesus Christ? In The Third Jesus, bestselling author and spiritual leader Deepak Chopra provides an answer to this question that is both a challenge to current systems of belief and a fresh perspective on what Jesus can teach us all, regardless of our religious background. There is not one Jesus, Chopra writes, but three.First, there is the historical Jesus, the man who lived more than two thousand years ago and whose teachings are the foundation of Christian theology and thought. Next there is Jesus the Son of God, who has come to embody an institutional religion with specific dogma, a priesthood, and devout believers. And finally, there is the third Jesus, the cosmic Christ, the spiritual guide whose teaching embraces all humanity, not just the church built in his name. He speaks to the individual who wants to find God as a personal experience, to attain what some might call grace, or God-consciousness, or enlightenment. When we take Jesus literally, we are faced with the impossible. How can we truly "love thy neighbor as thyself"? But when we see the exhortations of Jesus as invitations to join him on a higher spiritual plane, his words suddenly make sense.Ultimately, Chopra argues, Christianity needs to overcome its tendency to be exclusionary and refocus on being a religion of personal insight and spiritual growth. In this way Jesus can be seen for the universal teacher he truly is-someone whose teachings of compassion, tolerance, and understanding can embrace and be embraced by all of us.From the Hardcover edition.
