Chopra Meditation & Well-Being App

Dear Chopra Community — When I joined the company last year, I was thrilled to be part of the Chopra Center’s impactful content and experiences, which have been empowering millions of people for more than 20 years. However, I was struck by the lack of 24/7 accessibility to our inspiring programs, especially our meditations and self-care guidance. In today’s world, we don’t have the luxury of scheduling when we need healing, sound sleep, stress reduction, mood management, or meaningful purpose. A daily practice of self-care is not a nice-to-have, but essential for all of us to experience our greatest health and joy.

Our Plan to Drive Change

It’s 2020 in America, yet we still have a civil rights deficit. Change requires action by all of us. That’s why we’re taking an honest look at ourselves. The truth may be uncomfortable, but it is necessary for equality. Chopra has been serving for 25 years and we acknowledge we must do more to make well-being accessible to all. We strive for a world in which all humans thrive in health and happiness, yet for those who don’t feel safe in society, thriving can feel like an unrealistic dream.

A New Dawn

Hi there — You may have noticed that we look a bit different today. You might even say we’re glowing. That’s because today we’re launching our new look, representing a new era for Chopra. We’ve been working on the new us for more than a year and we’re thrilled to finally share all that we have planned for you.

Una carta de nuestro CEO

Querida comunidad de Chopra — A medida que la humanidad se encuentra en un momento de transformación, cada uno de no-sotros tiene el desafío de ir más allá de las creencias antiguas y los patrones limitantes. Juntos, nos estamos movilizando para obtener urgentemente justicia social, pero el mero acto de reunión social amenaza nuestra salud física. Sabemos que muchos están sufriendo, especial-mente aquellos en comunidades de nuestros hermanos y hermanas de color que han sido des-proporcionadamente afectados por la pandemia y son víctimas diarias del racismo y la discrimi-nación. Estamos con ustedes y con su derecho a ser vistos, escuchados y respetados.

A Letter from our CEO

Dear Chopra Community — As humanity undergoes a transformation, we are each being challenged to move beyond outdated, limiting beliefs and behaviors. Together, we are mobilizing to urgently pursue social justice, yet the mere act of social gathering threatens our physical health. Many are hurting, especially those in communities of color who have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic and are victims of systemic racism and discrimination.

Hope in Uncertain Times

Dear Chopra Community — I hope this message finds you, your family and friends in good health and spirits. When I became CEO of Chopra a year ago, I knew it would be challenging, but I could never have predicted the circumstances we now face. Fortunately, I am part of a company where the staff is more like family than co-workers. While our offices in New York and California are currently closed in compliance with the physical distancing guidelines, we are more connected than ever.
