Our lives are like a garden where we nurture the individual blossoms that create beauty and harmony. If we focus most of our attention on one area, such as our work or finances, the other plants in our garden can begin to look limp and withered. What aspects of your life are calling out for more attention? Read on for creative solutions to cultivate your creativity, relationships, inner life, health, and abundance.
1. Create Change
Whether you’re feeling stuck in habitual patterns or simply want to enhance the creative flow in your life, travel is a powerful catalyst. It can immediately shift our perspective and infuse us with new energy and insight. Here are a few travel suggestions:
Take a trip with the Chopra Center! This October for the first time ever we are bringing the Seduction of Spirit meditation retreat to Marco Island, Florida. You will spend six days learning advanced meditation practices with Deepak and David, in a stunning setting overlooking the turquoise waters and white-sand beaches of Florida’s Gulf Coast. Learn more about Seduction of Spirit here.
Take a 45-minute odyssey through the sacred lands of the American Southwest. Living Temples – Sacred Land is a stunning DVD featuring composer David Lanz, Gary Stroutsos, and Linda Hunt. Click here to learn more.
2. Create Connections
Deep intimate connections fulfill a core human need to experience oneness and unity. Unfortunately, many of us carry a deep-seated belief in our unlovability that prevents us from experiencing loving relationships – with our self and with others. David Simon has created a unique healing process that will help you let go of negative core beliefs and emotional pain – creating space in your heart for love and fulfillment. Read about the Free to Love workshop here.
Gaia Soulmates is a new online dating website created specifically for people who are interested in mind-body health, spiritual connection, inner growth, and community. Gaia Soulmates offers a free basic membership that allows members to search, contact others, and be contacted. People from throughout the world are invited to join and meet kindred spirits from the global community. Learn more about Gaia Soulmates here.
3. Create Calm
When your mind is filled with emotional turbulence and noisy thought traffic, there is little opportunity for creativity to enter. Through the practice of meditation, you can go beyond this internal dialogue into the silence and stillness of pure awareness. This is the birthplace of all inspiration. The Chopra Center teaches Primordial Sound Meditation, an ancient technique rooted in the Vedic tradition of India. Deepak and David consider meditation the foundational practice for experiencing greater well-being, creativity, and inner peace. For this reason, Primordial Sound Meditation instruction is offered at every Chopra Center event, workshop, and program. Click here for a menu of our upcoming programs.
4. Create Health
The body-mind is infinitely creative – a field of quantum mechanical intelligence that is constantly responding to our thoughts, emotions, and intentions. Ayurvedic medicine offers powerful tools and techniques to balance and enliven the body’s innate healing intelligence. If you want to create health and balance in your own life, the Perfect Health program is for you. During this six-day ayurvedic immersion you will receive daily ayurvedic massage treatments, Panchakarma cleansing, and instruction in yoga, meditation, and ayurveda. Perfect Health guests receive a mind-body medical consultation with a member of the Chopra Center’s medical staff.
Abundance can mean many things. It can mean material wealth. It can mean emotional well-being and spiritual fulfillment. Abundance can mean the ability to fully experience love and compassion. No matter what your current life and financial situation is, know this: You have the ability to create abundance in whatever form you desire. At the SynchroDestiny workshop, Deepak will teach you the keys to harness the creative power of intention, synchronicity, and awareness. This is the Chopra Center’s most exclusive life-transforming workshop, designed for those who want to take their life to the next level. This October, SynchroDestiny is coming to the beautiful sunshine of Ponte Vedra, Florida, where you will learn specific tools and advanced practices for creating your deepest desires and dreams.
