The world and its demands are only going to get more intense
Carlsbad, California (PRWEB) February 4, 2008
The Chopra Center for Wellbeing will present its signature program Soul of Healing this March 17-21 at La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad, California. Limited to an intimate group of only 40 guests, Soul of Healing is designed and led by mind-body pioneers Deepak Chopra, M.D. and David Simon, M.D. for those seeking to manage stress, heal physical and emotional pain, and take their well-being to a higher level.
At Soul of Healing, Deepak Chopra and David Simon will guide participants in a five-day immersion program that integrates the healing arts of the East with modern Western medicine. In addition to a one-on-one mind-body consultation with a member of Dr. Simon's medical staff, guests will learn practical tools and techniques that they can immediately use in their daily life, including Primordial Sound Meditation, Chopra Center yoga, stress management and living in balance.
"The world and its demands are only going to get more intense," said Dr. Simon. "To survive and thrive in a rapidly changing environment, we need flexibility, balance and strength. Those who join us at Soul of Healing will learn how to cultivate the qualities that allow us to stay healthy and have greater peace of mind."
Each day at Soul of Healing, guests will experience Ayurvedic massage treatments. For the first time, the program will include the rejuvenating treatment known as Rasayana -- a powerful Ayurvedic therapy that releases physical toxins and emotional stress.
"We have expanded Soul of Healing to include daily Rasayana massage treatments," said Dr. Chopra. "This process clears the toxins that build up in the body and contribute to illness and accelerated aging. For thousands of years, Rasayana has been used to revitalize the body, calm the mind and restore vitality."
