Deepak Chopra Launches New UpFront Membership App

Deepak Chopra joined together with Upfront, which offers an exclusive online community to influencers and their fans in an app and Web format, to launch his new Upfront app and Web community.

Not only will he be sharing exclusive content – including photos, videos, meditations and more – but Chopra will also be able to communicate directly with fans through Upfront.

“I’m just thrilled to have joined Upfront, and I’ll be communicating with you on a daily basis, hopefully with a daily inspiration, a meditation, uploading videos and audios as necessary – not overwhelming you but give you tips on health, success, relationships and higher consciousness,” he said in the introductory video. “It’s going to be an adventure, and as I travel the world, all over the world, I’ll be informing you of things that I learn and I’ll share them with you as well.”

Members will have access to photos, videos, SMS messages, emails, polls, phone calls and live-streaming events from anywhere in the world. While the app – available on both iPhone and Android devices – is free to download, there is a subscription fee to access the platform.

For $.99 per month, there is a Club membership that allows members to access any questions posted by Chopra, as well as his photos, and gives Chopra the option to contact via phone or text messages. The second level is Premium, for $3.99 per month, which adds on access to exclusive video content not available anywhere else, including behind the scenes, interviews and more. Finally, the All Access pass is $5.99 a month, and includes live webcasts and in-person events.

The Chopra Center Launches Online Happiness Course

The Chopra Center for Wellbeing launched a new online course – “Awaken to Happiness” – a FREE eight-week interactive course created for anyone who would like to experience more happiness, fulfillment and love in their lives, according to the company.

Over the eight-week series, participants will receive a weekly email with a link to the week’s happiness lesson, which includes a guided meditation, video instruction, intention-setting exercises, and other powerful exercises for cultivating a deep experience of happiness and purpose in life. Additionally, through the Chopra Center’s Facebook page, participants will also have an opportunity to share their experiences and be part of a supportive global community.

“The Awaken to Happiness Series is designed to help people experience the happiness that doesn’t depend on external circumstances or events but that is part of our essential nature,” said Chopra Center co-founder Dr. Deepak Chopra. “One of the most common myths about happiness is that if we get what we want – if we achieve success, get the promotion, find a partner, have a child, or fulfill our heart’s desire – then we will be happy. This turns out to be false. As researchers have found, it is the other way around: People who are happy tend to experience greater success, better health and more loving relationships.”

Chopra’s top recommendations for creating a happy life are:

— Meditation, which opens up deeper levels of the mind.

— Taking actions that benefit others

— Social relationships that support intimacy and bonding

— Taking enjoyment in natural beauty

— Having a vision of personal fulfillment that you follow every day

— Aiming for inner fulfillment rather than external fulfillment

— Reducing stress

— Taking time for peaceful reflection

— Learning to love your own company

— Resolving conflicts, both inner and outer, rather than letting them build up

— Paying one’s debt to the past, which means healing old hurts and grievances

— Stepping away from group think and second-hand opinions

— Cultivating kindness and compassion

—  Being generous of spirit, learning to give

Registration for the eight-week “Awaken to Happiness” series is available now through August 5.

Thich Nhat Hanh Will Hold NYC Calligraphy Exhibit and Talk in September 2013

Internationally respected peace activist, author, and Zen Master, Thich Nhat Hanh, will be exhibiting his calligraphy at ABC Home Deepak HomeBase, 888 Broadway, New York, from September 7-December 31, 2013, and it will be free and open to the public. This will be the first time Thich Nhat Hanh’s calligraphy will be on display in the United States. The exhibit has been shown in France, Germany, South Korea, Thailand, Vancouver and Hong Kong.

He has produced many beautiful and meaningful calligraphies—including Peace is Every Step; Peace in Oneself, Peace in the World; Be Still and Know; Be Free Where You Are—to remind people of the practice of mindful breathing, mindful walking, mindful eating and mindful living.

The exhibition Calligraphic Meditation: The Mindful Art Of Thich Nhat Hanh is a collection of calligraphic expressions as a work of art, and is also a living meditative experience for those who attend. The central theme is the Art of Mindfulness, which visitors will be invited to explore through reflecting first on the exquisite artwork and then on the selected excerpts from the Zen Master’s writing as an inspiration to practice the art of mindful living themselves.

Additionally, Thich Nhat Hanh will give a public talk – the second to last stop on the ‘Nourishing Great Togetherness Tour, The Present Moment: Wisdom for Global Peace and Happiness.” It will take place at the Beacon Theatre on Saturday, September 7, 2013, from 2:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.

He will speak about how mindfulness can save us from personal suffering, war and global warming, and will teach how people can use mindfulness to bring peace and happiness to themselves, those around them and the world.

Eighty monks and nuns from his monasteries in Europe, Asia, and North America, including Blue Cliff Monastery in upstate New York, will be present and participating in mindfulness activities.

Tickets for the talk are available via or at the Beacon Theatre Box office in person.

Wild Divine Launches Manifestation Challenge to Benefit Charity

Wild Divine, developer of unique whole-body relaxation training programs incorporating its unique feedback “iom” technology, launched a Manifestation Challenge to benefit charity via it’s Wild Divine Online (WDO) platform.

WDO is a private social network for meditation and mindfulness, and the manifestation unites the Wild Divine community to build something together to benefit others. Here is how it works:

Members of the WDO can visit a new mysterious area and complete meditations led by Deepak Chopra and others (there will be more added over time) to earn manifestation points that can be used as votes for one of the five charities listed including Amnesty International and the Red Cross.

“Once the manifestation is complete, Wild Divine will make a cash contribution to the charity with the most votes,” said Kyle Widner, president and CEO of Wild Divine. “We designed our virtual world to help create positive change in the real world. This is the first of many events that will focus on supporting causes that are important to our community.”

Wild Divine has leveraged the power of the Internet to build a gathering place for the more than 100,000 (and growing) users of Wild Divine programs from all over the world. WDO members can access all of their Wild Divine programs, interact with like-minded members of the Wild Divine global community, be the first to access new programs, track their personal progress and see how this compares with others, achieve different levels and attainments, and more.

Membership in Wild Divine online is free. Premium members have unlimited access to all the Wild Divine programs included, and exclusive first access to new programs.
