What's Next for You?

In just a few days, each of us will have completed one more official journey around the sun. According to the modern time-keeping mode of the local domain, we on earth call that journey “a year.” How does it feel to have journeyed that far? What have you learned in the nearly 365 days that have unfolded . . . what have you discovered about your life, about peace and love, about the Self, and about yourself? Have you shared more light and love with your friends, colleagues, relatives, and the special beings in your life? How will you measure your growth? What will you do with what you have learned?

Where will 2012 take us? And what steps will we take or not take to get us to our dreams? The next step on our path can be filled with mystery and excitement, innocence and surrender, grace and ease – or all of these . . . and much,  much more as we journey towards our destiny.

From around the world, thousands of people come to the Chopra Center seeking peace of mind, freedom from pain, perfect health, connection to spirit, and greater fulfillment and happiness in their lives. We often say, the path to wellness starts here; yet there are many steps you can take to venture forth on your path.

As you journey, it is helpful to let go of the known and detach from the past. After all, the past is no longer here. One effortless key to detachment is silence. The space between thoughts is the window to the soul. Silence helps us know ourselves.

Is your next step a meditation retreat?

Although we practice meditation every day here at the Chopra Center, we truly celebrate it, learn from it, and learn about it at our popular meditation and yoga retreat – Seduction of Spirit. In 2012 we are excited to offer Seduction of Spirit here in the sweet spot of Carlsbad, California – and we will also be premiering this special event in Chicago in July.

This is a wonderful opportunity to learn from and meditate with Deepak, celebrate Primordial Sound Meditation and learn how to fully weave its mysteries into your day-to-day life as you meet and share this highly rewarding experience with other meditators and friends from around the globe. At the end of these six days, as you return home more peaceful, intuitive, anxiety-free, and energized, your family and friends will thank you. Guests often say that this experience has changed every cell in their bodies. This year also brings a deeper understanding of the physical, and the interconnectedness of our mind and spirit with our bodies.

If you're seeking mind-body harmony . . .

Our Yoga Teacher Training Program will help you bring body-centered restful awareness to new levels – the yogi within will bloom in new and even surprising ways. This is a truly transformational way to take your yoga practice to new levels, and share those teachings with those in your local community. And if you are seeking a more profound knowledge of Ayurveda, you can learn how to integrate it into your life with a week of Perfect Health or by attending our intensive Ayurvedic mind-body healing workshop - Journey into Healing.

These are among the infinite next steps each one of us can take in 2012 to bring us closer to our unconditioned selves, to commit our bodies and minds to nourishing choices, and to tap into the divine spirit that rests within. Come journey with us as you take your next step; thousands around the world have found it to be the ideal next step to balance, healing, and

The Chopra Center's 2012 calendar of events is finalized and we are placing our intentions on touching millions more people around the globe over the course of the next year to help them heal, balance, and transform.

On behalf of Deepak, David, and the Chopra Center University staff, thank you for being a part of our extended family. We wish you and your family a year filled with peace,
compassion, self-referral, joy and the fulfillment of all you desire.
