The day before boarding the plane and heading back home I had the privilege of meeting with Dr. Deepak Chopra at the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, California. We talked about going on the road, about ego and the value of humility, about the fascinating concept of collective consciousness, the importance of the present, and about subjectivity and the possible convergence of science and spirituality.
I find it fascinating to see how recent research on empirically-tested psychology interventions and the 4000 year old Hindu wisdom traditions point to very similar conclusions about life, and about the path to obtaining lasting and deep inner peace. Here is a short video showing some of our conversation. Post a comment and let me know what you think about the ideas!
