As a global leader and pioneer in the field of mind-body medicine, Deepak Chopra is transforming the way the world views physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social wellness. He is a prolific author of more than sixty-four books, including nineteen New York Times bestsellers. His book Peace Is the Way received the prestigious Religions and Spirituality Quill Award in 2005, and The Book of Secrets was awarded the grand prize at the 2005 Nautilus Book Awards. His latest New York Times bestseller, War of the Worldviews: Science vs. Spirituality (co-authored with physicist Leonard Mlodinow), successfully elevates the conversation between science and religion in a way that is thoughtful and constructive rather than polarizing and divisive.
Deepak Chopra is a columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle and Washington Post on Faith and contributes regularly to Intent.com, CNN.com, and the Huffington Post. In addition, he hosts the popular Deepak Chopra Radio show on BlogTalk Radio.
