An Introduction to Panchakarma: The Ayurvedic Art and Science of Detoxification and Rejuvenation

Most people think of a detox as a superficial process. You change your diet, take supplements, or abstain from harmful substances, and the body does the rest. I am an advocate of all of these things.

3 Components In Any Spiritual Experience

What common experiences exist when it comes to spiritual traditions? According to our founder, Deepak Chopra, ™ MD, we can observe three distinct components. The first, transcendence from the ego identity, in which we evolve from the conditioned mind to the whole mind. The second, the spontaneous emergence of platonic truth. The third, the loss of the fear of death. When you are willing to step into the unknown, you embrace uncertainty and cultivate transformation.
