Deepak Chopra and Marianne Williamson- Magic in ABC Home, 2017

I breathed in Deepak Chopra and Marianne Williamson’s magical energy at ABC Home’s “Deepak Chopra Center” on the mezzanine.   The topic: activism in 2017.

Marianne began raising the temperature of the room with her passion.  She reminded us that, “love says ‘NO’…or yells ‘fire’ when the building is burning down.”

“We have touched the environment and started a Marianne
new conversation…touched business and started a new
conversation…we touched education and started a new
conversation…” but politics is toxic because we’re NOT THERE!  “We’re not enlightened masters yet…but need to ‘kick ass.'”

I feel a commensurate spirit within and hope to join her.

Deepak shared how deeply loving his childhood was…with a father who was a doctor and gave
Deepakhis patients prayers and money for the bus or train home.

Today, he describes us being in a place of fear, polarized as we suffer from lobbyism and cronyism, with 45% struggling, and only 20% engaged at work.

His spiritual solution?  Collectively ask, what is the deepest longing of your soul? He asked us to collectively reflect our strengths and declare, “Nothing I will do will have violence in my life.”

“Unless we each commit to our personal transformation, we won’t have a cultural one.”

I, too, believe it begins with an “inside job.”

As a holistic practitioner and peaceful warrior, I’m proud to say it’s an experience I offer to my CEO clients and my community at the Manhattan Holistic Chamber of Commerce.  Please come and create this magic together.

What People Are Saying. . .
I just completed Michele’s 90-day MORE program. As Michele will remind you, if you decide to study with her, things don’t happen to us; they happen for us. Michele happened for me just when I needed what she is committed to teaching. Commitment is the key word because she is always thinking of what she can do to help others live happy, successful lives filled with joy. She takes care to really understand what each of her students needs and instinctively suggests just the right message, yoga exercise, meditation, food, experience, etc., that will resonate with them to help them courageously live the life they want. Michele is a gift you deserve to give yourself when you’re finally ready to live your best, authentic life.

...I have suffered from emotional eating for 6 years, during which I have juggled and switched through different therapists and treatment options. I continued to feel "stuck" as the approaches focused on the past and why I acquired my disease. ...Michele's plan of remaining present- right here, right now- in addition to helping me choose love for myself, has allowed me to grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually... Michele is a true gift from God.

The benefits have been significant. My reason for doing this yoga is to improve and maintain good health. Each morning class provides me with the motivation to get up and improve my physical and mental strength. I also think one of the greatest things about Michele’s 365 Yoga Course is I can join a class any day of the week, drop in at any time during the class and leave at a time that works for me and my schedule, from anywhere I am.
