Carlsbad, CA―February 25, 2009―The Chopra Center for Wellbeing today announced its Chopra en Español division catering to the growing number of Spanish speakers seeking out the Center’s programs and teachings in mind-body wellness, stress management, emotional healing, and human empowerment.
“In the 15 years or so since Deepak Chopra and I first had the idea to create a wellness center where people could come to heal their physical and emotional pain, mind-body medicine and the Eastern healing traditions have become widely accepted and popular ― not only in the U.S. but also in many other parts of the Western world, including Mexico, South America, and Central America,” said Dr. Simon.
“We have launched Chopra en Español so that Spanish speakers will have greater access to the Chopra Center’s timeless teachings for natural health and balance,” he said.
With the development of Chopra en Español, the Chopra Center now offers simultaneous Spanish translation at the Center’s top three signature programs: the Journey into Healing mind-body workshop, Seduction of Spirit meditation retreat, and the SynchroDestiny empowerment program.
The Chopra Center is also currently creating a Spanish-language version of its popular newsletter and website chopra.com. In addition, the Center will soon offer its teacher training courses in Spanish, enabling those who want to become certified instructors of meditation, yoga, and Ayurveda to learn in their native language.
Chopra en Español’s new director is Juan Carlos Briseño Merino, a project management expert who previously headed up the project management team for DHL in Mexico City.
“Chopra en Español is a dream come true for many,” said Merino. “It will open up the whole Chopra world to Spanish-speaking seekers of mind-body wellness and spiritual awakening.”
“It is with great privilege that I decided to relocate with my wife and two kids to what has been nicknamed the sweetest spot in the universe: the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, California. Our vision is to offer the tools of mind, body, and spirit wellness to Spanish-speaking guests, and we will be able to do so by sharing the Chopra Center’s knowledge, certifications, and programs in their language.”
