Perfect Health
Bring your body, mind, and soul back into balance 

 

Perfect Health is something we all seek. Yet, deadlines, meetings, palm pilots, kids' schedules, cell phones, conference calls, blackberries, commuting, running a household...seem to knock us off balance. How often do you eat your lunch at your desk? How often do you find yourself overwhelmed? How often do you find yourself racing around? After a few years of running at such a hectic pace, the stress builds up, the anxieties overtake us, and --in some cases--this imbalance manifests itself as imperfect health. Our digestion, nightly sleep patterns, close relationships, career paths- all seem to suffer as we get further from our natural state of perfect health.

There is a way back to the center, to balance, to our unconditioned self where calm is the rule and chaos is an experience of the past. That way is the Perfect Health Program -designed by Drs. Deepak Chopra & David Simon-and created with the intention of soothing you, teaching you, and immersing you in practical behaviors that will allow you to return to your world with renewed vitality, radiant beauty, and a reconnection to your most healthy state. Leave your everyday demands at the door and rediscover peace and perfection, health and happiness in a nurturing, compassionate, and judgement-free environment. Indulge and pamper yourself while you learn the keys to recovery, detoxification, and preventative wellness at The Chopra Center.

Integrating the best of Western medicine with the healing tradition of Ayurveda, our Perfect Health program is designed to meet your schedule. So come visit us for 3 days (Monday-Wednesday), 5 days (Monday-Friday), a full week (Monday - Sunday), or a weekend (Friday-Sunday)--- each transformational day of Perfect Health offers an extraordinary blend of purification, rejuvenation, and timeless wisdom. Spend just a few days in our caring hands and take home a lifetime of benefits.

This Program Includes:

-Primordial Sound Meditation instruction and follow-up classes
-Daily sessions in mind-body-spirit integration
-Tools and techniques to reduce stress, calm anxiety, and bring balance into your life
-Morning yoga and meditation sessions
-Free time for walks, spa treatments, recovery, and rest

For those seeking the ultimate mind-body detox experience, we recommend adding the Ayurvedic Purification Program which is known in India as Panchakarma. This scientifically designed cleansing process includes the complete Perfect Health program plus a home preparation plan to ready your body for its detox, a consultation with one of our mind-body physicians, incredible Ayurvedic Spa Therapies, and thousand-year old elimination treatments once reserved only for Indian royalty.

Consider our end of the year holiday Perfect Health program running through the week of Dec 26 and ending the day before New Years' Eve. Most people have this week off -- it's an ideal opportunity to detach from your world of deadlines, stress, and time management pressures, and re-engage yourself for 2006. Re-connect, rejuvenate, re-balance, renew, re-center, re-energize and take the tools of Perfect Health into your life as the New Year unfolds.

This vibrational disharmony in the body allows illness to set in. Sound and hands-on energy work can help break up, release and even dissolve the blockages that originate in our etheric body. Gandharva Therapy also affects the brain wave activity, allowing the recipient to experience alpha states as in meditation. Back to Top ^^

Panchakarma

For the ultimate detoxifying and cleansing experience, add the Ayurvedic Purification Program known in India as Panchakarma. This deluxe multi-day purification program includes a home preparation plan, a consultation with one of our mind-body physicians, and daily healing Ayurvedic Spa Therapies that move toxins quickly through and out of your body.

This ancient purification and rejuvenation technique involves a series of specialized treatments specifically tailored to your dosha or mind body type. Panchakarma (PK) can also be included in our Perfect Health and Soul of Healing programs.

There are four essential components to the Panchakarma process:
The first step in Panchakarma (PK) is the process of oleation, which initiates the purification process by loosening toxins, or ama, in the tissues. Oleation is accomplished by special massages using herbalized oils or by taking certain herbs internally.

The second step is to heat the body using specific steam and warm oil therapies. This is known as Swedana in Ayurveda. Using therapeutic heat allows the loosened toxins to flow more easily from the tissues to the GI tract.

The third step in the Panchakarma process is to eliminate the toxins that have accumulated. This is accomplished by the use of gentle herbal enemas, known as bastis, and gentle cleansing of the upper respiratory tract and sinuses, known as nasya.

The fourth step is rejuvenation known as rasayana to help the body restore its strength after it has been detoxified.

The
Ayurvedic Spa Therapies are administered over a period of several consecutive days (up to 30 days), and help create a profound and deeply purifying experience.

This deep level of detox, cleansing, and rejuvenation is ideal for those looking for a fresh start after experiencing excessive periods of emotional, physical, or spiritual stress. Call (760) 494 - 1639 to find out the appropriate cleanse for you or email info@chopra.com.

If you've been through panchakarma before and are ready for your seasonal detox, the Chopra Center offers a la carte Panchakarma programs.
5 Day PK Pkg $1860 (includes medical consultation)
7 Day PK Pkg $2260 (includes medical consultation)
If you desire more than 7 Days, we will customize a program to suit your needs.

 

 

Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh................

Secrets.......................
                  of...........................
                                    Enlightenment!

Every human being is in search of freedom -- freedom from worry, freedom from illness, freedom from confusion, freedom from a sense of isolation.

At some point in our lives, the realization dawns upon us that freedom does not come from external situations or circumstance. At this moment, we begin an irreversible inner quest for liberation.

Secrets of Enlightenment is a celebration of this inner journey and the practical application of its fruits.

Many thanks to you and to The Chopra Center for leading me along this path of awareness that I never knew existed...

I started my self-discovery journey (for the first time in my 54 years!) in January of this year and it has been an amazing time for me...

Attending 'Secrets' and discovering Meditation was a continuation of the ''magic' that has happened to me this year as I have begun to discover that I do, indeed, have a spirit/soul. I was beginning to think that I was standing 'behind the door' when the souls were passed out and that I never received one! Gee, I guess it was just hiding somewhere..."

Drawing upon Dr. Deepak Chopra’s best selling publication -The Book of Secrets - this premier workshop explores the subtle yet powerful clues that guide us on our path toward freedom.

In spending these few magnificent days with Deepak, you will learn to incorporate the understanding of enlightened sages across millennia that:

                           You are not in the world; the world is in you.

                           The cause of all suffering is not knowing the true nature of reality.

                           You are a multi-dimensional being living life simultaneously on many levels

                           The cosmic mind expresses itself through your individual thoughts.

                           You cannot be truly free as long as you think of yourself as a person.

                           The deeper you go, the more power is available to create anything you desire.
