  • Deepak Chopra's Mind Body Zone: Living Outside the Box Trailer

    Jul 28 2021

    "When you want to change your life in any way, one truth always comes first: You can only change what you are aware of. The choice is simple: expand your awareness or live without real change." (Deepak Chopra)

    The surest path to self-development is through our vital connection to the world around us. That’s the lesson in Deepak Chopra’s essential new podcast, Mind Body Zone. Over 12 episodes, Chopra, the preeminent thought leader in this space, holds intimate conversations with a range of extraordinary guests to explore the challenges we each face, and reveal how they've worked to transcend the ordinary and redefine their lives through harnessing a mind-body connection.

    Among Deepak’s dynamic guests: activist and advocate X González, yoga teacher and body positivity advocate Jessamyn Stanley, anti-racism educator Layla Saad, multidisciplinary artist Jon Batiste, U.S. poet laureate Joy Harjo; media pioneer Oprah Winfrey, and many more. Each conversation concludes with a bespoke meditation, led by Chopra, designed to help listeners further absorb and put into practice newly explored ideas and themes.

    Join Deepak Chopra and discover how together we can each become whole.

About the Guest

In 2020, Jon Batiste redefined what it means to be productive. Recording and releasing two Grammy-nominated albums, check. Cultural and social advocacy, check. Band leading and music directing on the Late Show, check. Practicing, learning, sharing, growing, check.
Was he done there? Batiste? Nah. He decided to build a studio in his dressing room at the renowned Ed Sullivan Theater and invited a few talented friends—including singer-songwriter Autumn Rowe and producer Kizzo—to lay the blueprint for what is destined to become a seminal masterpiece of black pop American music, his forthcoming album, WE ARE. Not to mention, he put all of this together in 6 days. Again, redefining productivity. He ended the year with his music and likeness being centrally featured in the Disney/Pixar film Soul. His composing and songwriting will be featured in his large-scale, genre-melding symphonic work "American Symphony," set to premiere at Carnegie Hall in 2021 and he has been developing a broadway musical about the life of famed painter Jean-Michel Basquiat.
Jon balances a demanding performance schedule—which often includes his signature ‘love riot’ street parades—with public speaking engagements, masterclasses, brand partnerships, community activism, and acting roles. In the wake of George Floyd's murder and in the lead up to the election, he organized several peaceful protest marches, leading thousands in the streets of New York City. He played himself on the HBO series Tremé and appeared in Spike Lee’s Red Hook Summer and Da Sweet Blood of Jesus.

Two stars. It's OK

Depends on the guest. Some are good, some are just using the Depak brand to add to their resume. And way too much political commentary for a "mind body zone" theme. I've been a follower of Chopra over the years, and this brought him down a notch in my mind.

Not interesting

Esoteric and uninteresting. Wonder why audible recommended this to me. Clear no for me. Box or no box. The box is still rooted in reality. This podcast not.

I got a lot out of this.

There were a couple interviews that just weren't up my alley but that's okay. I took a lot away from this, overall very uplifting and insightful.

Powerful Truths

I love the incorporation of interviews and telling of personal truth. The beauty of vulnerability and the way Deepak can always slide through the clutter and recognize source. He addresses the taboo such as religious shame and outside forces & distortion of reality; to allow the reader to ground in truth.

Each episode is followed by a nice meditation and reinforcement of knowledge. SO GLAD I BEGAN🙌🏽

Please continue to share your gift through this source; you are appreciated Deepak.

confused by negative reviews

this podcast is AMAZING!
I'm completely confused by the negative reviews. the ones that stand out say how shirt it is, maybe they just listened to the intro podcast???
each topic has a guest and is about 20-30 minutes long. then that's followed by a meditation episode that's about 10 minutes long. Deepak discusses things about the topic and then offers like a 1-2 meditation at the end... oh, maybe they're complaining about the length of the meditation???
oh, yeah, don't listen to this for the meditations, it's not about that... this is about the topics and how meditation can help you go through those hard topics. this is not a guided meditation series.

another negative one that stands out is the person was saying how it seems like the guests are there to self promote and such.
I whole heartedly disagree. I've only listened to the first 3, but I've been raving amd sharing the Vulnerability and Trauma episodes like crazy! they are so good, and speek the truth about these hard things.
but, Operah does mention in the Vulnerability one about people are at different points in their lives and can only really hear the knowledge passed if they're in that state to receive it..... so maybe there's that going on.

anyways, so far this is an amazing podcast chalked full of raw truths that really get you thinking and empathizing and loving more.
thank you, thank you so much for this. I will share and refer back often!

SUBTLE POLITICAL AGENDAS COUCHED IN HEALING :(

I am politically aware, but not an activist. I am neither right nor left leaning. I thought I could come to this Podcast to gain a better understanding of mind body connection. But unfortunately whenever you put a microphone in front of some they will use it to advance an agenda. I am so discouraged to know that Deepak would use his platform and brand to further social division, couched in mind body healing. I listened to 5 or 6 podcasts and finally had to turn it off because I'm sick of hearing mere opinion of others with a blow-horn and social reach.

So important for today. A must listen

While short this episode contains some deep learning potential. Interconnection is vital for life and Deepak offers a wonderful view here of how you might remember that you are interconnected, intertwined with the very fabric of life.
Listen and listen again.
