I hope to co-develop other products with Wild Divine that will help in the treatment of addictions, asthma, irritable bowels, migraines and other stress-related disorders. I see a time when, instead of giving a patient a pharmaceutical for a more common stress-related disorder, you actually ask the patient to play the Wild Divine game and see if the symptoms are eliminate”.

Deepak Chopra – India & USA
Listen to his 3 1/2 minutes video on Big Picture.
He explains how the environmental crisis directly challenges the way humanity perceives reality. Science has spent hundreds of years making distinctions that don’t really exist. As a result, we think of ourselves as separate from the environment. The reality, he explains, is that we humans are an integral part of the environment – and that the environment is part of us. As a physician, public speaker and best-selling author, Deepak Chopra is “undoubtedly one of the most lucid and inspired philosophers of our time” (quoting a citation from Mikhail Gorbachev). Having established himself as a world leader in the field of holistic health, Dr Chopra co-founded the “Chopra Center for Well Being” in 1995. Through the center he continues to revolutionize the way the world views physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social wellness. Dr. Chopra is a prolific author of more than 35 books that have sold over 20 million copies worldwide. They include “Perfect Health: Ageless Body, Timeless Mind” (1993) “How to Know God” (2001) and “Peace is the Way” (2005). (On this Big-Picture link).

Chopra was educated in India and immigrated to the U.S. in 1970, becoming board-certified in internal medicine and endocrinology. He graduated from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in 1968, and after interning at a New Jersey hospital, trained for several more years at the Lahey Clinic in Burlington, Massachusetts and at the University of Virginia Hospital. He taught at Tufts University and Boston University Schools of Medicine, became the chief of staff at the New England Memorial Hospital and established a large private practice. He became a leader in the Transcendental Meditation movement, but later branched off on his own to pursue broader aims in mind-body treatment. He is Chief Executive Officer and Medical Director of The Chopra Center, which he founded in 1992 in San Diego; it is currently located at La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad, California with branches in New York City and elsewhere. Chopra completed his primary education at St. Columba’s School in New Delhi. In 2004, Chopra was recruited to co-write a script with Indian film director Shekhar Kapur on a proposed film to be made about the life of Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha. In June, 2005, Chopra and Kapur launched a discussion blog  with a select group of Indian colleagues, friends, and family. The stated purpose of the blog is to present original voices from South Asia (particularly India) and discuss a variety of topics. In 2006, Chopra launched Virgin Comics LLC alongside his son, Gotham Chopra, and Richard Branson, famed entrepreneur and thrill-seeker. The aim of the company is to promote and examine Southeast Asian themes and culture through the use of the traditional comic book medium. (much more on wikipedia).
About his book: ‘Poweer, Freedom and Grace’: … He believes all his readers are asking these questions, “Who am I? Where did I come from? Where do I go when I die?” Chopra says there are no answers to those questions — but considering them can help lead us to appreciate the human condition. According to Chopra, “When we understand our true nature, we begin to live from the source of lasting happiness” — something he calls “Pure inner joy.” He adds, “By knowing who we are, we no longer interfere with the innate intelligence of the cosmos.” For earnest Chopra fans, there is much to chew on here.
