Carlsbad, California (PRWEB) August 30, 2013
This December 11–15 at the Chopra Center for Wellbeing in Carlsbad, California, best-selling authors and spiritual teachers ― Deepak Chopra and Jean Houston ― will lead the Summoning the Sacred course, an experiential 4-day course that draws on the power of the world’s wisdom traditions, myths, archetypes, and other timeless tools for creating a life of purpose, joy, and true success.
“In our fast-paced modern lives, many of us are working harder than ever, and even when we achieve a degree of material success, we still may feel a deep void or emptiness – a longing to belong, to create, to express ourselves, to make a difference, and to feel connected to a higher experience of reality or spirituality,” said Chopra Center co-founder Deepak Chopra.
“My colleague Jean Houston and I created the Summoning the Sacred course to help people find a deeper purpose, creativity, joy, and peace in their lives through the power of myths. Far from being old tales, myths are the collective story of what our lives mean.
"As Jean, who is one of the world’s recognized authorities in mythology, says, myths are codes and roads and maps. Where we wind up on life’s journey depends upon the map we carry with us, which is why it’s so important to understand our own myths and personal archetypes – and use them to awaken to deeper meaning and fulfillment,” Dr. Chopra said.
