Many of us live and operate from a mind-set of lack, scarcity, and limitation. We focus on what we don’t have, from financial security to confidence or an intimate relationship, which keeps us feeling insecure and inadequate. We think “if only I could have those things, I could be happy.” But measuring wealth by money, status, or material possessions can leave us feeling drained and spiritually empty. Constantly striving for more often means our ego is driving our thoughts, actions, and reactions—preventing us from reaching something greater—a true sense of inner peace, acceptance, and fulfillment.
Spiritual teacher and international bestselling author Deepak Chopra believes there is an inner path to prosperity and wealth that—once charted and explored—offers access to the great riches of the universe and life’s unbounded possibilities. In his latest book Abundance: The Inner Path to Wealth, Deepak illuminates this road to success and wholeness, sharing a guide to a life of true power, prosperity, and plenty.
Join Deepak and CIIS Chair of Integrative Health Studies Meg Jordan for a conversation exploring how to tap into a deeper sense of awareness to become an agent of change in your own life. Drawing upon ancient teachings, spiritual practices, and wisdom he’s garnered for over four decades as a leading figure in mind-body medicine, Deepak discusses how to transcend self-generated feelings of limitation and fear in order to experience true abundance in all aspects of life.
