Carlsbad, California (PRWEB) July 02, 2013
This August 22–25, the Chopra Center’s signature mind-body healing workshop, Journey into Healing: Super Brain, will take place at La Costa Resort & Spa, where Deepak Chopra, M.D. and a team of mind-body healing specialists will lead an in-depth exploration of integrative medicine that combines the wisdom of Eastern healing traditions with the newest discoveries in medical science.
The keynote speaker at this August’s Journey into Healing workshop is Dr. Rudolph Tanzi, a world-class brain researcher and Harvard professor who has discovered many of the genes for Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Tanzi and Dr. Deepak Chopra co-authored the best-selling book Super Brain: Unleashing the Explosive Power of Your Mind to Maximize Health, Happiness, and Spiritual Wellbeing.
“At Journey into Healing, Dr. Tanzi and I will share some of the most exciting discoveries emerging from the field of neuroscience, including our power to influence the activity of our genes to prevent diseases and promote health,” said Deepak Chopra.
“We now know that through daily lifestyle choices and other simple mind-body practices, you can actively shape new neural pathways. You can keep your memory intact, preserve your brain’s health, and minimize the risk of aging and senile dementia – things that are greatly feared as people grow older. We’re looking forward to exploring these insights and teaching the keys to mind-body health and longevity at Journey into Healing this August,” Dr. Chopra said.
Offered only a few times each year, Journey into Healing is an intensive workshop that brings together the top minds in a variety of fields encompassing mind-body health, neuroscience, psychology, and personal transformation.
Every year hundreds of people from around the world attend Journey into Healing – including healthcare professionals as well as individuals seeking knowledge and lifestyle tools for healthy living.
