Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) November 20, 2012
Two of the world’s leading pioneers in holistic, mind-body medicine ― Deepak Chopra, M.D. and Andrew Weil, M.D. ― are joining forces to teach the Journey into Healing workshop this March 14–17, 2013 at La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad, California.
Journey into Healing is an in-depth course in mind-body medicine led by Chopra Center co-founder Dr. Deepak Chopra and a team of the world’s foremost experts in integrative and holistic healthcare. Every year hundreds of people from around the world attend Journey into Healing ― including health care professionals as well as individuals seeking to learn the principles and practical tools for cultivating health, preventing disease, and living a longer, happier life. Journey into Healing is an accredited course, offering CME credits (Continuing Medical Education) in partnership with the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine.
For the first time, this March Dr. Andrew Weil will be a keynote speaker and guest lecturer at Journey into Healing, a truly integrative course that combines the ancient wisdom and practices of traditional healing systems (with a special emphasis on Ayurveda) with the most recent discoveries in neuroscience, genetics, and other fields of medical science.
“Journey into Healing has been one of the Chopra Center’s most popular courses for more than a decade, and it has continued to evolve and expand, filling a growing demand as more and more people realize that health isn’t simply the absence of disease and that we aren’t doomed by our genes to develop the same illnesses that our parents and grandparents suffered from,” said Dr. Chopra.
“Dr. Andrew Weil is a pioneer and a leader in the field of integrative medicine, and we are excited that he will be part of our team of physicians and mind-body healing practitioners teaching at this March’s Journey into Healing. It’s going to be an extraordinary learning experience for everyone who attends,” Deepak Chopra said.
Journey into Healing will take place this March 14–17 at the Chopra Center’s location at La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, California. Early bird discounts are available. Current best pricing offer for 2013 expires November 27. Learn more here.
