SEDUCTION OF SPIRIT: Inspire Your Life April 21–27, 2013 Carlsbad, California • La Costa Resort & Spa
Join Deepak Chopra & Eckhart Tolle And our featured guest speakers: davidji, Robyn Benincasa, Janine Shepherd, Anita Moorjani, and Dr. Ken Druck
For the first time ever, Deepak Chopra and Eckhart Tolle are coming together to share their insight and wisdom, and discuss some of life's biggest questions with you. As part of your Seduction of Spirit retreat, you will spend one special evening exploring the concepts of inspiration, happiness, life purpose, and more with these two thought leaders.
Are you looking for insight into your true calling? Seeking more clarity? Do you want to be inspired?
If you’ve answered yes to these questions and are ready for the answers, join Deepak Chopra in April for Seduction of Spirit, dedicated to infusing your life with new inspiration.
At this unique retreat, Deepak and the Chopra Center’s master educators will guide you in timeless practices for connecting to your deepest self, that wise aspect of your being that knows who you are, why you’re here, and how you can use your gifts for the greatest benefit and fulfillment of everyone in your life – including yourself. This sense of purpose is known in Sanskrit as your dharma.
Filling your life with inspiration is the key to unlocking greater happiness, purpose, and health within your life. This requires going beyond the level of the mind, which has a tendency to get caught up in analysis and premature cognitive commitments . . . rejecting possibilities as “impractical” or unrealistic.
Through the extended practice of meditation that you will experience at Seduction of Spirit, you can go beyond the mind’s busy chatter into the realm of expanded consciousness, where you’re able to access fresh insights, become aware of synchronistic opportunities, and experience clarity of purpose. In a supportive group setting, you’ll be able to explore your true life’s purpose and benefit from the opportunity to share your experience with other like-minded individuals.
“We are all inextricably connected to a field of awareness that is infinite, unbounded, and eternal. This consciousness is the underlying source that gives rise to everything in the universe. It is the birthplace of our ideas, our creativity, our inspiration, and all else.
Meditation, yoga, and other specific practices give us direct access to this field of silent awareness. By gently allowing our intentions to drop into this state of silence and joy, we put ourselves into the best position for those intentions to manifest."
This beautiful retreat is about slowing down and tuning into the peace of present moment awareness. Through the practice of Primordial Sound Meditation, Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga, and other timeless tools, you will begin to:
• Deepen your meditation practice • Move beyond limiting conditioned beliefs • Appreciate the gifts of your life as it unfolds • Let go of the struggle and achieve more by doing less • Experience the mind-body harmony of yoga • Release the stress and obstacles to balanced living • Tap into your deepest potential to manifest your wishes, dreams, and desires.
In a supportive group of like-minded individuals, Deepak Chopra, special guest speakers, and Chopra Center master educators will guide you in Primordial Sound Meditation, Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga, visualizations, creative activities, and discussions that will awaken you to all the gifts that lie within.

Robyn Benincasa accepts full blame for inspiring people to do insane things like climb Mount Kilimanjaro, run their first triathlon, start their own adventure racing teams, or launch their own businesses. This is, after all, who she is and what she does: Robyn Benincasa inspires people to do amazing things.
Benincasa has made an art form of extreme performance by competing and winning at the highest levels of sport and business. Revered as one of “California’s Fittest Women,” she spent her youth competing at the state and national level in gymnastics, diving, cross country, and judo in which she became a national champion. Soon after earning a marketing degree from Arizona State University, Robyn joined a Fortune 500 pharmaceutical company where she earned the prestigious “Rookie of the Year” award.
While consistently achieving top sales in her day job, Robyn completed six Ironman races, with two podium finishes. Then the adventure race bug bit.
In her fifteen-year career as a professional adventure racer, Robyn Benincasa has competed in close to forty expedition-length events - grueling, multiday, multisport endurance races such as Primal Quest and Eco-Challenge. She has biked through jungles in Borneo, climbed Himalayan giants in Nepal, trekked across lava fields in Fiji, rafted rapids in Chile - and racked up multiple world championship titles along the way. In her spare time, Robyn, is a full-time firefighter in San Diego, on the nation's first all-female crew.
NBC, ABC, CNN, ESPN, USA Network, Discovery Channel, Outdoor Life Network, PBS and FOX have all featured Robyn and her amazing accomplishments. Add to those network credits editorials in Fast Company, Sport Illustrated, Vogue, Corporate & Incentive Travel, The New York Times, Outside, and Harper's Bazaar.
Janine Shepherd's story reads like the plot of a Hollywood movie. A champion cross-country skier in training for the Winter Olympics, her life was irrevocably altered when she was hit by a truck on a bike ride. Doctors warned her parents that she was not expected to survive her extensive injuries and even if she recovered, she would never walk again. Janine's hopes of being an elite athlete were gone. But Janine refused to believe what the medical professionals were telling her and instead she focused every sinew of her being on healing her broken body and crushed morale. After spinal surgery an months in the hospital, she returned home in a wheelchair.
Struggling to come to terms with her shattered Olympic dreams, and wondering what life could now offer, Janine's fighting spirit was rekindled watching small planes flying overhead. At that moment she said to herself, If I can't walk, I'll fly.
Today, Janine Shepherd is a walking paraplegic; she is also a qualified commercial pilot and aerobatics instructor, international speaker and best-selling author. Once voted as one of the world's most outstanding and inspirational people, Janine devotes her professional life to empowering others to overcome adversity
Anita Moorjani has become something of an international sensation since her book Dying to be Me hit the New York Times bestsellers list only two weeks after its release in March, 2012. She had experienced what most people never have; she "crossed over," and came back to share what she learned. Her remarkable NDE (Near-death experience) and subsequent healing from end-stage cancer is one of the most amazing cases ever recorded. Doctors had given her mere hours to live when she arrived at the hospital in a coma on the morning of February 2, 2006. Unable to move, and in a deep coma as the result of the cancer that had ravaged her body for nearly four years, Anita entered another dimension, where she experienced great clarity and understanding of her life and purpose here on earth, and was given a choice of whether to return to life or not. Anita chose to return to life when she realized that "heaven" is a state, and not a place. This subsequently resulted in a remarkable and complete recovery of her health within days of her return.
Born in Singapore to Indian parents, Anita has lived in Hong Kong most of her life. She is multilingual, and from the age of two, grew up speaking English, Cantonese, and an Indian dialect. She had been working in the corporate field for several years before her cancer diagnosis in 2002.
Anita is often invited to speak globally to share her insights. She appeared in Dr. Wayne Dyer's Wishes Fulfilled, video presentation, aired frequently on PBS. She is the embodiment of the truth that we all have the inner power and wisdom to overcome even life's most adverse situations. She is the living proof of this possibility.
She inspires her audience to transform their lives by living more authentically, discovering their greatest passions, transcending their deepest fears, and living from a place of pure joy. You will feel energized as Anita explains such mind-bending concepts as timelessness, non-duality, and simultaneous realities, in clear and simple terms that everyone will understand.
Join Anita Moorjani as she shares her riveting story that will radically alter your current beliefs about yourself, your purpose on earth, your health, your relationships, and your life!
