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
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
his 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.
