The Chopra Center for Wellbeing is coming to the beautiful city of Austin, with two signature programs, Seduction of Spirit and the Chopra Yoga Retreat, in the spring of 2008.
One of the Chopra Center's most popular programs for more than a decade, Seduction of Spirit is a six-day meditation retreat led by renowned mind-body physicians Deepak Chopra and David Simon, and the Chopra Center staff. Seduction of Spirit is designed for those looking to manage stress, reduce anxiety, ease their emotional turbulence and take their well-being to a higher level. This coming March 31-April 5, attendees will learn the powerful teachings of meditation at the magnificent Horseshoe Bay Marriott Resort in Austin, Texas. Nestled on the shores of Lake LBJ in the lush, rolling hills of Austin's most verdant expanse, Horseshoe Bay Marriott boasts a magnificent spa and meditation garden, peaceful waterways and a calming energy that pervades all aspects of the resort. The Chopra Center is also presenting the Chopra Yoga Retreat this March 6-9 at the fabled Crossings Retreat Center. Surrounded by more than 200 acres of nature preserve, the Crossings Retreat Center offers sweeping views of Austin's gorgeous hills, fresh lake breezes and soothing spas and saunas. Reach out to the author: contact and available social following information is listed in the top-right of all news releases. In the 9-week online course SynchroDestiny, Deepak Chopra will reveal how tapping into your higher knowing means paying attention to clues that will support you in having what you really want in life. Editor’s Note: This is a guest post by Julie Murphy Casserly, a Certified Financial Planner and founder of JMC Wealth Management, Inc.
Without fail, most of the people who come to me for financial counseling express the same frustration: They aren’t living the lives they truly want to live.
A healthy relationship with money doesn’t revolve around your finances but around your hopes and dreams.
When you put your spiritual realm, what I call “Inner Wealth,” at the center of your life, you’ll never see the other aspects of your life quite the same way again. Use the exercise below to connect with and nurture your Inner Wealth and start living the life you were meant to live. 3.    Review your lists and circle the priorities, values, and core beliefs that you express in your daily actions. Commit to taking one step every day and you will be amazed by the shift you will experience in your relationship with money and your fulfillment in life.

Julie is a member of the extended Chopra Center family, and has shared her wisdom and organizational talent at several Chopra Center events in Chicago. It’s one of the best tools we have to balance our emotions, deal with physical and psychological distress, and promote the peace of the present moment. Both programs will offer the city of forward-thinking Texans - as well as visitors to Austin - an opportunity to integrate well-being into their daily routine. Participants will receive instruction in the popular practice of Primordial Sound Meditation and the Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga - and each day, delicious Ayurvedic vegetarian lunches will be served. Deepak Chopra is chairman and co-founder of the Chopra Center for Wellbeing and a best-selling author who has written more than 50 books.
I will then ask my heart for guidance and be guided by its message of comfort or discomfort.
I will make a commitment to keep wealth circulating in my life by giving and receiving life’s most precious gifts: the gifts of caring, affection, appreciation and love. I will get in touch with the field of pure potentiality by taking time each day to be silent, to just Be.
I will take time each day to commune with nature and to silently witness the intelligence within every living thing. I will ask myself daily, “How can I serve?” and “How can I help?” The answers to these questions will allow me to help and serve my fellow human beings with love. Deep down, the majority believe that if they only had enough money, they would finally feel content.

When put your life’s purpose and true fulfillment at the center of your world, you will be able to heal your relationship with money. Inner Wealth is the part of you that contains your conscience, values, and core beliefs – all of the nonphysical characteristics that make up your spiritual DNA. After taking your first small steps toward your dream life, guided by your life’s purpose, you’ll begin to feel empowered and energetic about your finances.
Sit quietly for a few minutes and reach out to the child in you, the dreamer, the part of you that safeguards your hopes and dreams. You might list your family, for example, or self-care, completing a degree, or paying off credit card debt. Notice the values and priorities you have that aren’t being supported by your current actions. I will step into the field of all possibilities and anticipate the excitement that can occur when I remain open to an infinity of choices. I will release this list of my desires and surrender it to the womb of creation, trusting that when things don’t seem to go my way, there is a reason, and that the cosmic plan has designs for me much grander than even those I have conceived.
Having accepted things as they are, I will take Responsibility for my situation and for all those events I see as problems. Learn stress management and explore the timeless teachings of Ayurveda, yoga and meditation.
Chopra and Simon designed this yoga lifestyle retreat based on their best-selling book The Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga, and it is taught by our top Chopra Center yoga instructors. He is acknowledged as one of the world's greatest leaders in the field of mind-body medicine.
I will receive the gifts of nature: sunlight and the sound of birds singing, or spring showers or the first snow of winter. I will also sit alone in silent meditation at least twice a day for approximately thirty minutes in the morning and thirty minutes in the evening. I will sit silently and watch a sunset, or listen to the sound of the ocean or a stream, or simply smell the scent of a flower. I will begin my day with the statement, “Today, I shall judge nothing that occurs,” and throughout the day I will remind myself not to judge. In reality, I’ve found the opposite to be true; the happier we are, the more likely we are to attract money and other forms of prosperity. It’s also the source of your dreams, your desires, your individuality, and your life’s purpose.
Next, make a list of your values or the things you hold most dear, such as honesty, loyalty, health, love, commitment, and so on.

In my willingness to accept uncertainty, solutions will spontaneously emerge out of the problem, out of the confusion, order and chaos. When I step into the field of all possibilities, I will experience all the fun, adventure, magic and mystery of life. I will refuse to allow obstacles to consume and dissipate the quality of my attention in the present moment. I know that taking responsibility means not blaming anyone or anything for my situation (and this includes myself). Join us to start or enrich your practice of yoga and meditation, step away from the pressure of your daily schedule and take home new healing tools and techniques that will stay with you for the rest of your life. Simon is the recipient of a National Institutes of Health grant to study mind-body approaches to health, and has created initiatives to bring holistic health-care programs to medical institutions, community health centers, and health resorts. The philosophy of the Center is based upon the principles and practices of holistic and alternative medicine from around the world. I will know that the best way to prepare for any moment in the future is to be fully conscious in the present.

If the choice feels uncomfortable, I will pause and see the consequences of my action with my inner vision.
Today, I will give something to everyone I come into contact with, and so I will begin the process of circulating joy, wealth and affluence in my life and in the lives of others. I will also be open to receiving from others, whether it be in the form of a material gift, money, a compliment or a prayer. In the ecstasy of my own silence, and by communing with nature, I will enjoy the life throb of ages, the field of pure potentiality and unbounded creativity. When I express my unique talents and use them in the service of humanity, I lose track of time and create abundance in my life as well as in the lives of others. One of the realms of your life – financial, personal, family, work or spiritual – is at the center of your world, creating a powerful force . Finally, make a list of your core beliefs, such as belief in a higher power or the belief that everyone has the right to a quality education. The more uncertain things seem to be, the more secure I will feel, because uncertainty is my path to freedom. I will accept the present as it is, and manifest the future through my deepest, most cherished intentions and desires. I will know that this moment is as it should be, because the whole universe is as it should be.
I also know that every problem is an opportunity in disguise, and this alertness to opportunities allows me to take this moment and transform it into a greater benefit. Meditating on your own requires some effort, while guided meditations literally walk you through a meditation and help you find a calm and peaceful state—one step at a time. Chopra is revolutionizing common wisdom about the crucial connection between body, mind, spirit and healing. The Center's goal is to provide guests with tools, techniques and routines to promote their own longevity and health, human potential and success, while increasing personal balance, happiness and fulfillment. And when we choose actions that bring happiness and success to others, the fruit of our karma is happiness and success. This guidance will enable me to make spontaneously correct choices for myself and for all those around me. And in our willingness to give that which we seek, we keep the abundance of the universe circulating in our lives.
And when we realize that our true Self is one of pure potentiality, we align with the power that manifests everything in nature.
And when we blend this unique talent with service to others, we experience the ecstasy and exultation of our own spirit, which is the ultimate goal of all goals.
I will carry the consciousness of timeless, eternal Being in the midst of time-bound experience. Now choose one or two of the priorities, values, and beliefs from your lists and come up with a few small, practical ways to express them in your everyday life. And in our willingness to step into the unknown, the field of all possibilities, we surrender ourselves to the creative mind that orchestrates the dance of the universe.
And when we introduce an intention in the fertile ground of pure potentiality, we put this infinite organizing power to work for us. And when we harness the forces of harmony, joy, and love, we create success and good fortune with effortless ease.
Meditations below range from five minutes to one hour.To load every audio file may take several minutes depending on your internet speed. Many of us place the financial realm at the center, giving it the power to influence all the other aspects of our lives.
