Intro rant – The poison as a result of injecting dogmatic religion into spiritual gatherings.

Deepak Chopra

Chopra studied medicine in India before emigrating to the United States in 1970 where he completed residencies in internal medicine and endocrinology. As a licensed physician, he became chief of staff at the New England Memorial Hospital (NEMH) in 1980.[7] He met Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in 1985 and became involved with the Transcendental Meditation movement (TM). He resigned his position at NEMH shortly thereafter to establish the Maharishi Ayurveda Health Center.[8] Chopra gained a following in 1993 after he was interviewed on The Oprah Winfrey Show about his books.[9] He then left the TM movement to become the executive director of Sharp HealthCare’s Center for Mind-Body Medicine and in 1996 he co-founded the Chopra Center for Wellbeing.

Michael beams into the IAH Podcast (Originally for the MAPS Podcast) for an all new episode of the show. His iconic books on the nature and ethics of food have become staples within the zeitgeist of the modern diet and sustainable agriculture. Now, as evidenced in his new book and this podcast, he’s taken on the world of psychedelic science and research with as much insight and objectivity as you would expect from him.

Zach Leary’s conversation with Michael dives into the importance of the research he studied while writing the book, the origins of his interest on the topic and his own personal experiences with psychedelic medicines.

IAH – Episode 118 – Deepak Chopra

This episode of the podcast features the practical and poetic wisdom from the one and only legendary Deepak Chopra! What an honor and thrill it was to sit down with Deepak to do a podcast that surfed many planes of consciousness, mysticism and science. Our conversation dealt primarily with the success of the scientific revolution over the course of the last 300 years and how that turned humanity away from it’s mystic roots and quest for spiritual understanding. Deepak provides a roadmap on how to cultivate the spiritual heart while not turning ones back on science and logic. Sit back and settle into a download from one of the great icons of the modern spiritual movement.
