The mind-body wellness center founded by Deepak Chopra, M.D. and David Simon, M.D. in Southern California helps people find relief from stress and anxiety over financial downturn, political uncertainty, and plummeting

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- As the daily news unfolds stories of massive home foreclosures, corporate layoffs, and depleted life savings, The Chopra Center for Wellbeing is teaching those impacted how to find balance and peace of mind. In the midst of economic chaos, The Chopra Center serves as an oasis of calm, instructing increasingly popular classes in the time-proven tools of meditation, yoga, and mind-body healing.

"So many have been hard hit by the financial crisis and are struggling to make the best of the situation while coping with feelings of anger, fear, frustration, and loss," said Chopra Center co-founder and best-selling author, Dr. David Simon.

"Each week at the Chopra Center, we teach guests how to meditate, practice yoga, and use other ancient healing techniques. It's such a relief and a gift to discover that we don't have to be at the mercy of the world's ups and downs and events beyond our control . . . that there are simple but powerful tools that can help us experience a state of calm, centered awareness -- no matter what kind of confusion and turmoil is spinning out in the exterior world."

One of The Chopra Center's most popular programs is the weekly Perfect Health program designed by Deepak Chopra and David Simon. Perfect Health is the only wellness program in the world that combines a renowned medical staff, a six-day detoxification and cleansing process (known as Panchakarma), and daily foundational teachings in meditation, yoga, and Ayurveda (India's 5,000-year-old healing system).

"We obviously can't solve the problem of stress by moving to an island paradise without cell phones, economic upsets, and traffic jams," said Deepak Chopra. "The world and its demands are only going to become more intense, but we can experience our own islands of inner peace by learning practices that take us beyond the mind's constant stream of thoughts, worries, fear and mental chatter.

"Meditation and other mind-body healing practices are the most effective way to restore our balance, release stress, and awaken our body's innate healing response."
