En Iluminación, Deepak Chopra da vida a los conceptos que ha trabajado en sus obras previas. Valiéndose de un novedoso método que incluye siete lecciones de golf -deporte que recientemente practica el autor-, Chopra presenta igual número de lecciones para la vida, por medio de las cuales el lector aprenderá a vivir con plenitud y tranquilidad aun en medio del caos cotidiano. En esta obra, el autor relata la historia de Adam, un jugador de golf que, al parecer, está conforme con su vida, pero no con su juego de golf y quien conoce a una golfista profesional, Wendy, con la que aprenderá no sólo a mejorar su juego, sino a conocerse a sí mismo y a transformar su vida. A lo largo del relato, el lector aprenderá, junto con Adam, a integrar su mente, vivir en el presente para encontrar el tiro perfecto, jugar con el corazón y apreciar el triunfo sin estar sometido a él. Como dice el autor, cualquier momento o actividad es propicio para iniciar una nueva vida, para conocernos y dejar atrás los obstáculos que nos impiden ver que, en realidad, la felicidad está a nuestro alcance por el simple y sencillo hecho de que es parte de la naturaleza humana. Iluminación es una obra en la que se muestra la madurez de pensamiento alcanzado por un hombre que ha transmitido con gran facilidad su particular visión del mundo, la cual conjunta sabidurías milenarias y actuales para brindar a todos la oportunidad de cambiar desde este momento.
"En Jamás moriremos el Dr. Chopra nos ofrece el beneficio de su singular experiencia en la vida, desde la práctica de la medicina en la sala de urgencias hasta sus aventuras en la metafísica oriental. Este libro es inspirador, reconfortante y bien informado. Presenta información convincente sobre la supervivencia a la muerte corporal, mientas nos muestra el sendero hacia la alegría y la vastedad, y el descubrimiento de quienes somos en realidad, que es mucho más que sólo un cuerpo físico." -RUSSELL TARG, médico y autor de The End of Suffering. "Chopra ilumina de manera brillante una maravillosa variedad de experiencias extraordinarias, documentadas por científicos e ingenieros, y teje con ellos un tapiz que incluye diferentes tradiciones religiosas al agruparlas, compararlas y analizarlas. Este empirismo radical se inscribe en la tradición de William James y tiene un éxito hermoso, como el de James, al arrojar la 'carga de la prueba' a los materialistas reduccionistas, a quienes por varias décadas, mientras afirmaban hablar en nombre de la ciencia, se les ha permitido ignorar la base misma de la ciencia: los hechos. Chopra compara a continuación esas experiencias e información con algunas de las metáforas con las que nosotros, en el mundo de la ciencia, nos divertimos e impresionamos a las masas. Deepak ha dejado caer el mallete y ha exigido que los materialistas reduccionistas asuman la carga de la prueba. Yo puedo predecir con confianza que lo más que harán es tratar de ignorarlo." -RUSTUM ROY, profesor de la Universidad Estatal de Pensilvania, Universidad Estatal de Arizona y Universidad de Arizona; elegido como miembro de la Academia Nacional de Ciencias o de Ingeniería de los Estados Unidos, Suecia, Japón, Rusia e India. "Con sabiduría profunda y claridad, Deepak Chopra revela una impresionante perspectiva caleidoscópica sobre las posibilidades infinitas en el campo de Akasha. Uno puede identifi carse fácilmente con la experiencia personal en el ciclo de la vida cotidiana, cristalizada en forma de historias. Cada cultura, religión e individuo puede acceder al sendero espiritual de su elección en esta obra notable donde 'el amor, la verdad, la compasión, el nacimiento y la muerte son iguales' y la eternidad es AHORA." -HERMANA JUDIAN BREITENBACH, R. N., Orden católica de las siervas pobres de Jesucristo, Centro Namaste para la Educación Holística, La Porte, Indianápolis. "Una exploración asombrosa y convincente acerca de lo que es nuestra próxima vida. Deepak Chopra nos lleva del dogma religioso a la verdad espiritual. Jamás moriremos nos permite darnos cuenta de que todos pertenecemos a una fe y somos participantes integrales de un plan divino. Nos transladamos de manera colectiva en nuestra conciencia hacia el esplendor espiritual en esta vida y en el más allá. Las preguntas exteriores encuentran respuesta y las convicciones interiores encuentran su confirmación en este gran libro, del que estoy muy agradecido." -TOM ZENDER, presidente del Consejo para el Liderazgo en Unidad; miembro
The New York Times bestselling author of Buddha captures the extraordinary life of Jesus in this surprising, soul-stirring, and page-turning novel. Uncovering the transformational "lost years" that are not recounted in the New Testament, Deepak Chopra has imagined Jesus's path to enlightenment moving from obscurity to revolutionary, from doubt to miracles, and then beyond as the role of the long-awaited Messiah. As a teenager, Jesus has premonitions of his destiny, and by the end, as he arrives to be baptized in the River Jordan, he has accepted his fate, which combines extremes of light and darkness. With his characteristic ability for imparting profound spiritual insights through the power of storytelling, Deepak Chopra's Jesus portrays the life of Christ as never before, ultimately leading us closer to understanding the nature of God and the soul. As the author shares, "I don't want the Jesus in this book to be worshiped, much less to push him forward as definitive. The events of the tale are pure fiction. But at a deeper level, the Jesus in this book feels real because we've gotten a glimpse into his mind. One flash of insight answers many prayers."
Chopra writes: "Insights are inner visions and they change our lives. The cosmic mind whispers to us in the silent spaces between our thoughts and there is a sudden knowingness and we are transformed. Insights are mutations in consciousness that can radically change our physical bodies and alter our experiences of the world." This book is a compilation of insights on health and healing, and is meant to be used with meditation.
Deepak Chopra has touched millions of readers by demystifying our deepest spiritual concerns while retaining their poetry and wonder. Now he turns to the most profound mystery: What happens after we die? Is this one question we were not meant to answer, a riddle whose solution the universe keeps to itself? Chopra tells us there is abundant evidence that "the world beyond" is not separated from this world by an impassable wall; in fact, a single reality embraces all worlds, all times and places. At the end of our lives we "cross over" into a new phase of the same soul journey we are on right this minute.In Life After Death, Chopra draws on cutting-edge scientific discoveries and the great wisdom traditions to provide a map of the afterlife. It's a fascinating journey into many levels of consciousness. But far more important is his urgent message: Who you meet in the afterlife and what you experience there reflect your present beliefs, expectations, and level of awareness. In the here and now you can shape what happens after you die.By bringing the afterlife into the present moment, Life After Death opens up an immense new area of creativity. Ultimately there is no division between life and death--there is only one continuous creative project. Chopra invites us to become cocreators in this subtle realm, and as we come to understand the one reality, we shed our irrational fears and step into a numinous sense of wonder and personal power.From the Hardcover edition.
"I'm trying to meditate one day but urgent thoughts keep intruding. Don't forget to take cupcakes to school! I have to prepare for my presentation for the wellness conference! Is that lunch with the other moms tomorrow or next week? My to-do list is stampeding through my mind, trampling any chance of tranquility. I feel overwhelmed, yes, but there's more: I feel...guilty. Guilty that I'm taking on too much, guilty that I'm not doing anything well, guilty that I'm giving short shrift to my kids, my husband, my job. And what about you, Mallika? a quiet voice asks. How are you shortchanging yourself?" Living with Intent is a chronicle of Mallika Chopra's search to find more meaning, joy, and balance in life. She hopes that by telling her story, she can inspire others with her own successes (and failures) as well as share some of the wisdom she has gathered from friends, experts, and family along the way-- people like her dad, Deepak, as well as Eckhart Tolle, Marianne Williamson, Arianna Huffington, Andrew Weil, and Dan Siegel. She also provides a practical road map for how we can all move from thought to action to outcome. Each chapter is devoted to one step on her journey and another piece of her INTENT action plan: Incubate, Notice, Trust, Express, Nurture, and Take Action. Chopra's insights and advice will help us all come closer to fully living the lives we truly intend.From the Hardcover edition.
A much-needed antidote to our modern, assembly-line approach to childbirth, this new book is designed as a guide for all who wish to participate in the wondrous process of bringing new life into the world.

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?

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.
THE LANDMARK BESTSELLER--NOW COMPLETELY REVISED AND UPDATED More than twenty-five years ago, Quantum Healing helped transform Deepak Chopra into a cultural phenomenon. Now Dr. Chopra, hailed by Time as "the poet-prophet of alternative medicine," returns to this groundbreaking work, adding the latest scientific research as well as expanded thoughts on the connection between body and mind. Inspired by the unexplained recovery of patients in his own practice who had been given just a few months to live, Dr. Chopra began his search for answers. After returning to his native India to explore humanity's most ancient healing tradition, Ayurveda, he combined those insights with Western medicine, neuroscience, and physics. What he discovered--a "network of intelligence" in the human body with the potential to defeat cancer, heart disease, even aging itself--forms the basis of Quantum Healing. In this new edition, Dr. Chopra once again offers a fascinating intellectual journey and a deeply moving chronicle of hope and healing. Praise for Quantum Healing "Quantum Healing didn't set out to cure cancer or Alzheimer's or any other intractable disease. It set out to see the human body, and human existence in general, through wiser eyes. As a scientist I'm passionate about genes and the brain; as a person I'm totally fascinated by the origins of consciousness. Quantum Healing galvanized my intuition that these areas do not have to be separated."--Dr. Rudolph Tanzi, from the new foreword "Deepak Chopra illuminates our true innate capacity for healing, growth, and evolution. With the wisdom of an experienced doctor, girded by science, he guides us to reclaim our natural power towards thriving. Chopra's work is paradigm-changing for medicine and helpful beyond measure for every human being seeking to evolve, flourish, and know our true nature."--Lisa Miller, Ph.D., author of The Spiritual Child and director of clinical psychology, Teachers College, Columbia University
"Todo lo que tememos y deseamos cambiar puede transformarse mediante la felicidad, nuestro más simple anhelo y también el más profundo". -Deepak Chopra La felicidad es algo que todos deseamos, pero cómo encontrarla sigue siendo un misterio. En La receta de la felicidad, Deepak Chopra nos muestra siete claves para descubrir los verdaderos secretos de la alegría, llevándonos en un inspirador viaje hacia nuestro yo verdadero, el único lugar indiferente a los problemas y las desgracias. "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.

The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success was a phenomenally successful book--more than 1,600,000 copies were sold--and as copies were passed between friends and loved ones, it touched millions more lives. Its author, Deepak Chopra, received thousands of letters from readers, many of whom expressed the desire to convey those same principles to their children, along with questions about how to do so. This book, The Seven Spiritual Laws for Parents, is Dr. Chopra's answer to those letters and to parents around the world who wish to raise children with values that satisfy spiritual needs as well as create the experience of abundance. After a general discussion of parenting and the gift of spirit, this book explores specific ways to practice the Seven Spiritual Laws as a family, how to convey these laws to children depending on their ages, and how to embody them in age-specific activities each day, beginning on Sundays with the Law of Pure Potentiality. The Seven Spiritual Laws for Parents moves us beyond private triumphs and failures to experience the spiritual nature of communion with family, to share with those closest to us the infinite riches of innocence and love.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
