For the first time ever, Journey into Healing is coming to Chicago, where Deepak Chopra and David Simon – a native of this beautiful city – will guide you in an intensive exploration of mind-body healing and Ayurveda.

Journey into Healing will take place at the renowned Sofitel Chicago O'Hare, a superb hotel renowned for its French-inspired style and luxury. The Sofitel offers an oasis of peace that nourishes every sense, including all feather-beds, fresh flowers, and beautiful art in every guest room. With its spacious accommodations, caring staff, and warm, inviting elegance, the Sofitel is the ideal setting for your personal Journey into Healing.

In a relaxed group setting away from the pressures and deadlines of daily life, Deepak and David will de-mystify Ayurveda, the ancient healing art of the East. You will learn practical tools and techniques to restore health and balance while letting go of emotional turbulence and stress.
