Meditation is a simple yet powerful tool that will take you to a state of profound relaxation, dissolve fatigue and accumulated stress, and renew your creativity and passion for life. By its very nature, meditation calms the mind, and when the mind is in a state of restful awareness, the body relaxes, too.
At the Chopra Center’s Meditation Weekend, you will learn the practice of Primordial Sound Meditation – a powerful technique rooted in India’s ancient Vedic tradition. Chopra Center co-founders Deepak Chopra and David Simon have made this ancient practice available in a format that is easy for anyone to learn.
Primordial Sound Meditation has been taught throughout the world for many years, and now you have an opportunity to experience a weekend learning this practice in its modern birthplace – the Chopra Center for Wellbeing, known as the sweet spot of the universe.
The Chopra Center is located on the grounds of the magnificent La Costa Resort & Spa. Nestled on 400 lush garden acres, La Costa is bathed in a perfect combination of inland sunshine mingled with the refreshing ocean breeze.

Between meditation and yoga sessions, you will have time to relax in the tropical gardens, luxuriate in the world-class spa, and enjoy delicious meals at one of La Costa’s fine restaurants.

As numerous scientific studies have shown, a regular meditation practice produces tangible benefits for mental and physical health, including:

- Reduction of stress and anxiety
- Relief from insomnia
- Increased production of the anti-aging hormone DHEA

In addition to these significant health benefits, meditation brings a profound sense of calm and inner peace into your daily life. When you emerge from your meditation session, you retain some of the stillness and silence you’ve experienced as you move through your day.
When you face life’s inevitable stresses, instead of being reactive, you’re responsive. Instead of feeling stuck in habitual thought patterns, you gain distance and a valuable new perspective that frees you to make more creative, life-affirming choices. You tap into a vast reservoir of creativity and energy that allows you to express more of your deepest potential.
