Dr. Deepak Chopra joined Full Frame’s Mike Walter to share his holistic approach for solving the biggest problems facing communities around the world.
“Stress is the number one epidemic of our civilization and it’s linked to every other epidemic,” says Dr. Deepak Chopra, the author of nineteen New York Times best-sellers and a global leader and spiritual guru in the field of mind-body medicine. Thirty years after beginning his medical practice, Dr. Chopra’s global fan base ranges from young students in India to celebrities, including Lady Gaga and Oprah Winfrey.
He equates stress with the ocean’s waves and says if we are equipped with the tools to surf those waves, we never have to be stressed. Dr. Chopra links the future state of society to the well-being of every individual and every individual’s community. And the first step begins with each person taking responsibility for his or her own well-being.
Dr. Chopra’s medical training in neuroendocrinology has informed his views on global issues and shaped the solutions he proposes to combat them.
“Stress wreaks physiological havoc” on the individual, but also leads to global conflict, economic disparity, and environmental degradation, according to Dr. Chopra. In his work with The Chopra Foundation, Dr. Chopra has committed to improving health and education standards worldwide and promoting world peace by working with the next generation of world leaders.
