Chicago, Illinois––June 17, 2008––This August 22–24, the Chopra Center for Wellbeing will present the signature workshop Renewal Weekend in Chicago, where participants will have a rare opportunity to learn from two world-renowned pioneers in the field of mind-body medicine: Deepak Chopra and David Simon.

Drs. Chopra & Simon created Renewal Weekend as an introduction to the Chopra Center’s timeless teachings, offering an ideal starting point for those who want to let go of stress and enjoy more balance and fulfillment in their lives, but don’t know where to begin.

“Renewal Weekend is the Chopra Center’s ‘gateway experience,’ designed for the beginner in meditation, yoga, and mind-body wellness,” said Deepak Chopra.

“It doesn’t matter if you think you can’t sit still long enough to meditate or have only the fuzziest knowledge of yoga and holistic health – Renewal Weekend offers a comfortable, safe setting where you can explore, ask questions, and learn at your own pace,” Dr. Chopra added.

Renewal Weekend includes:

• Instruction in the revived ancient practice of Primordial Sound Meditation
• Revitalizing yoga classes for all levels
• An introduction to natural health and Ayurveda
• A chance to spend quality time with like-minded individuals
Renewal Weekend takes place at the luxurious Westin Chicago, in the heart of the fabled River North district, offering art galleries, theaters, boutiques, and fine restaurants – all within an easy 30-minute drive to O’Hare International Airport.
