Deepak Chopra's Wellness Radio will debut in Summer 2006 exclusively on SIRIUS. Each week Chopra will discuss the areas of health, spirituality, relationships and success. Often putting today's news in the context of mind and body wellness, Chopra will teach, explain, inform, nurture and advise his listeners nationwide. Listeners will be able to call in for personal one-on- one conversations. Deepak Chopra's Wellness Radio will air every Saturday morning on SIRIUS Stars, channel 102.
"With SIRIUS I hope to reach a critical mass of people with a message of self development and personal and social transformation," said Chopra. "I will be focusing on four areas -- success; love, sexuality and relationships; well being; and spirituality. My hope is to develop a more personal relationship with a back and forth communication, something that I haven't been able to do with my books."
"Deepak Chopra's exceptional success as a doctor, author and teacher has touched the lives of millions of people. Deepak is leading the field of mind and body medicine and is changing the way we look at our health," said Scott Greenstein, SIRIUS' President, Entertainment and Sports. "We are excited to add Deepak Chopra's Wellness Radio to our already strong line-up of lifestyle programming."
Deepak Chopra has written over 42 books and released more than 100 audio, video and CD-ROM titles. They have been translated into 35 languages with over 20 million copies sold worldwide. In 1999 Time magazine selected Dr. Chopra as one of the Top 100 Icons and Heroes of the Century, describing him as "the poet prophet of alternative medicine."
His latest book, Peace Is the Way (Harmony Books) won the Quill Awards and The Book of Secrets: Unlocking the Hidden Dimensions of your Life was awarded the Nautilus Award. Some of his NY Times best-sellers include Ageless Body, Timeless Mind; The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success; Grow Younger, Live Longer: 10 Steps to Reverse Aging; and The Path to Love.
In 1995 the Chopra Center for Well Being was established in California, and has since become a leading institution for advancements in melding traditional western medicine and alternative healing practices. Deepak serves as an adjunct professor at the Kellogg School of Management, and regularly mentors corporate and political leaders through his Soul of Leadership workshops. He's the recipient of the Einstein award through Albert Einstein College of Medicine, in collaboration with the American Journal of Psychotherapy, and the recipient of the 2006 Ellis Island Medal of Honor from the National Ethnic Coalition of Organizations. Along with Nobel Peace laureates Oscar Arias, Betty Williams, and others, Chopra is a founding director of the Alliance for the New Humanity. Chopra joined the Gallup Organization as a senior scientist in 2005.
