Deepak Chopra is one of the leading global thinkers. He seeks to teach the benefits of incorporating meditation and a healthy lifestyle for increasing inner happiness. During his successful early career in medicine, Deepak became uneasy at his approach to life and in turn became aware of the limitations of Western medicine. He felt there was something missing in his approach to medical care and increasingly became interested in eastern medicine and studied the ancient Indian system of Ayurveda and yoga. He became internationally recognized after his first book, Creating Health, was published in 1986. He founded The Chopra Foundation which focuses on helping to create a peaceful, just, sustainable, and healthy world. With all this success, he became a successful motivational speaker with a series of multi-media programs for healing mind, body and spirit as well as a well-known author with over 65 published works, including numerous New York Times bestsellers.
