VIDEO: Deepak Chopra & Eckhart Tolle to Teach Seduction of Spirit Retreat

Seduction of the Spirit is the Chopra Center’s signature meditation and yoga retreat, and this April 21−27, 2013, the theme is “Inspire Your Life,” and the teachers will include Deepak Chopra and Eckhart Tolle. It will take place at the Chopra Center’s La Costa Resort & Spa location in Carlsbad, Calif.

Throughout the week, participants will be guided in practices of deep meditation, yoga, and other tools for moving beyond limiting beliefs into higher states of awareness and new possibilities, according to the Chopra Center.

“Seduction of Spirit has been one of our most popular retreats for many years, allowing people to step away from life’s daily demands and gain fresh perspective on who they are, what they really want, and how they want to use their unique gifts and talents to contribute to their families and to the world,” said Deepak Chopra, co-founder of The Chopra Center. “We are very excited about the upcoming Seduction of Spirit and the special guests who will be sharing their wisdom, inspiration, and practical insights. It’s going to be an unforgettable and life-changing experience.”

Seating is limited, and early bird rates are available. Seduction of Spirit guests are eligible to receive special resort rates that can be extended before after the event so that they can stay and enjoy the many local attractions and activities that the San Diego area offers.

Other guest speakers include:

Through determination and one-pointed intention, she overcame the grim medical prognosis to become a commercial pilot, aerobatics instructor, and international speaker and best-selling author

● Anita Moorjani, a New York Times best-selling author whose remarkable NDE (near-death experience) and subsequent healing from end-stage cancer is one of the most amazing cases ever recorded
