deepak chopra1Deepak Chopra is an Indian medical doctor and writer 

 Chopra created a paradigm for exploring the healing process – a model he  calls Quantum Healing. He recalls, “As doctors we are taught to prescribe  tranquilizers for people who are feeling anxious to promote tranquility.
  We  give sleeping pills to people with insomnia. Quantum Healing looks past all the wonder drugs and modern technology to a natural way of healing which speaks to an integration of mind and body.”
Chopra was born in New Delhi and educated in India. He completed his primary education at St. Columba’s School in New Delhi. Deepak Chopra is a graduate of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (1968) and a former leader of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s Transcendental Meditation and Ayurvedic medicine programs.
Having graduated from AIIMS in 1969, Chopra emigrated to the U.S. in 1970 with his new bride, Rita, to do his clinical internship at a New Jersey hospital, followed by residency training for several more years at the Lahey Clinic in Burlington, Massachusetts and at the University of Virginia Hospital. He became board-certified in internal medicine and endocrinology.
Chopra is the co-founder of the Chopra Center, which he founded in 1996 in La Jolla with Dr. David Simon. In 2002 the Center moved its official headquarters to La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad, California with a branch in New York City. He has plans for other centers.
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, Mallika Chopra, Deepak’s daughter, launched a discussion blog with Deepak, Kapur, and other well-known voices. 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 South Asian themes and culture through comic books.
Chopra has written more than 40 books. They range broadly across spiritual and health topics; including bestsellers on aging, the “Seven Spiritual Laws of Success,” the existence of God, arguments for the afterlife and world peace. He has also written novels and edited collections of spiritual poetry from India and Persia.
