"The universe has become self aware within us. We have the responsibility to be stewards of its future evolution."

Time Magazine named Deepak Chopra one of the top 100 heroes and icons of the century and called him "the poet-prophet of alternative medicine." With more than 70 books, this world-renown alternative medicine physician has inspired millions interested in holistic health, spirituality, conscious evolution, peace and creating a more compassionate, peaceful, just and sustainable world. Dr. Chopra began his career in traditional medicine - he was the Chief of Staff at the New England Memorial Hospital before studying Ayurveda, an ancient Hindu tradition of alternative medicine. He became the medical director of the Maharishi Ayurveda Health Center and in 1996 co-founded the Chopra Center for Wellbeing, which incorporates this ancient alternative medical practice. Deepak Chopra has also been involved with many organizations working to create a new global paradigm. He is the co-founder of the Alliance for a New Humanity, which creates "alliances toward one world that honors life and builds an awareness of humanity's interconnectedness" and the Evolutionary Leaders Group, which inspires, supports and serves leaders working to build a global movement for the conscious evolution of humanity.
