Interview with Deepak Chopra

Dr. Deepak Chopra and MelodyI had the honor of interviewing Dr. Deepak Chopra earlier this week as he opened his meditation and yoga center on Queen’s Quay West in Toronto, Ontario.  Speaking about his new book “Super Brain”, the charming, enigmatic Chopra left me with  a number of takeaway quotes.

P1190757Dr. Chopra admitted to meditating twice a day and encourages everyone to meditate “once a day and if you don’t have the time, meditate twice a day.”

Speaking about time, he said that ” time sickness is a disease of today” and “the more time sickness you have, the more time awareness you need.”

She is an ordinary person that enjoys challenging and pushing herself, facing fears with an eye on experiential travel. She needs to do it, feel it and see it so she can write about it.
