"For the past ten years, we have repeatedly seen patients and guests at the Chopra Center experience powerful healing benefits and personal transformation from using the tools and healing techniques of Ayurvedic medicine," said Dr. Simon.
"Those who join us this month in New York will gain a deeper understanding of holistic healing and learn how to translate that knowledge into choices that create greater health, true success, and joy in their daily lives," David Simon said.
