Deepak Chopra Press Release Head to be Re Written

CALABASAS, Calif., Nov. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — DTS, Inc. (Nasdaq: DTSI), a leader in high-definition audio solutions and audio enhancement technologies, today announced a new iOS app from Deepak Chopra and ABOVE Technologies that allows users to experience meditative poetry in immersive sound over any set of headphones through DTS Headphone:X technology.

Dr. Chopra, a world-renowned physician, best-selling author and wellness expert, narrates poems inspired by Rumi’s “Healing the Heart” meditations on “The Non Local” app that immerse the user in holistic sound, creating a tranquil environment for meditation and healing.   Rumi was a 13th-century Persian mystic whose poetry is beloved by wisdom traditions throughout the world.

“This app will allow you to calm down, reduce stress, normalize your blood pressure and sleep better by listening to sound in a holistic manner,” said Dr. Chopra. “I chose to work purposefully with DTS on this app because their Headphone:X technology creates truly immersive sound. The sound seems to be coming from everywhere — behind you, in front of you, above you and beside you. Headphone:X takes you out of your headphones, allowing you to experience ‘The Non Local.'”

DTS Headphone:X turns any ordinary pair of headphones into an impressive multidimensional sound system for mobile devices. It accurately recreates the original studio environment, providing listeners with immersive, 3D audio that delivers the perception of sound all around them. The technology aids in the experience of The Non Local app anywhere, anytime – in the home, at work or while traveling.

“DTS Headphone:X provides the audio experience listeners deserve on their mobile devices. When listeners experience the multidimensional impact of Headphone:X in their headphones, they immediately understand how amazing the mobile audio experience can be,” said Kevin Doohan, chief marketing officer (CMO) at DTS. “Garnering the support of a leader in alternative medicine and wellness such as Deepak Chopra is an honor.  The Non Local is a wonderful showcase of the potential of high-quality audio for personal enrichment as well as entertainment.”

Deepak Chopra’s The Non Local application features 12 tracks and is available for download now on iOS via iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id906379549.  An Android version of the app will be available in December.

Deepak will discuss The Non Local app and the benefits of holistic sound during a live Internet broadcast event at 2 p.m. PST today at the Omni La Costa in Carlsbad, Calif., home of the Chopra Center for Well Being.  For more information, visit http://bit.ly/deepaklive.

New India Tour Includes Two Amazing Festivals

If you want to see India’s Diwali (the festival of lights) and also Holi (the festival of colours), then you will be very interested in a new tour that was recently announced. Here are the details…

Goway’s extensive India program returns in 2017, led by the company’s HOLIDAYS OF A LIFETIME® flagship tour, Splendours of India, which enhances the passenger’s India travels with the “promise of something special.”

Goway offers a range of quality touring options to India, including fully-customizable independent journeys, economical group tours such as the 6-day Essential Golden Triangle, and Goway’s Holiday of a Lifetime, the 17-day Splendours of India. Goway’s thirteen HOLIDAYS OF A LIFETIME® come with the “promise of something special”, and every year Goway Asia’s General Manager Diane Molzan works to deliver on this promise based on continued research and passenger feedback.

“We never want to get stuck in a rut or provide passengers with a slightly flat experience,” says Molzan. “For instance, in Agra we like to include a visit to a community project, and now we visit a very special place called Sheroes Hangout, a café run by women marred by acid attacks. The café allows these women to tell their stories, move past their shame and rebuild their lives.”

Other added touches beginning in October 2017 include high tea with a local family near the ghost town of Fatehpur Sikri, a visit to an Indian wrestling school near Varanasi, and a custom sari fitting in Jaipur.

In addition, two special departures overlap with two of India’s most radiant festivals — Diwali (the festival of lights) and Holi (the festival of colours). Travellers who join the 5 October 2017 departure will get the chance to celebrate Diwali in Delhi, including a night out with dinner, drinks and fireworks. The 23 February 2018 departure coincides with the Hindu spring festival Holi, and travellers will enjoy a celebration lunch including costumes, water guns, water balloons, herbal colours, and traditional music.

“Splendours of India is part of Goway’s commitment to offer the highest possible quality escorted journey for globetrotters who want to explore the world safely and comfortably, yet still gain an authentic experience in an exotic part of the world,” says Molzan.

Splendours of India is priced from US $6999 / CA $8499. For more information on Splendours of India, or on any of Goway’s twelve other HOLIDAYS OF A LIFETIME®, call 1-800-387-8850, or visit Goway.com.

Since 1970, Goway has been providing unforgettable travel experiences to Africa, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Central & South America, Europe, and Idyllic Island destinations. Today Goway is recognized as one of North America’s leading travel companies for individuals, families and groups to exotic destinations around the globe. Goway has offices in Toronto, Vancouver, Los Angeles, Sydney and Manila.

The Masters Of Wisdom – Who They Are And Why They’re Here

by Julian Middleton

To understand who the Masters are and why they’re here, it’s worth pausing to consider who we are and why we’re here. Many in the Mind, Body and Spirit field are familiar with terms such as ascension, grace, enlightenment and so forth. I also suspect that many of us have only somewhat vague notions as to what these phrases really mean – ideals only, perhaps, to strive for and hopefully attain in a far-flung future. Indeed, the Masters are those Great Ones who though countless incarnations and much struggle and suffering (as well as great achievement) have attained such lofty states and thus achieved the prize of release from the Great Wheel of death and rebirth. They have matriculated from the university of life, where many of us remain in truth strictly first years, having undergone every conceivable experience life on earth has to offer, learned every lesson and passed every test. In so doing they have, in effect, attained a humility that we dare only dream of. They have mastered themselves on every level – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual, and as a result have no further need to incarnate on Earth. All power, wisdom, knowledge and love are theirs.

[ad name=”AdSense Responsive”]

For millions of years, the Masters worked openly among us, and humanity was evolving steadily under Their wise guidance and tuition. Following the destruction of Atlantis around 98,000 years ago, however, the Masters of the time were forced to retreat to the remote areas of the planet – the deserts and especially the mountains, from where they have continued to guide us. They have in particular operated through their initiates – great men and women throughout history who have themselves been evolving under the Masters’ tutelage, albeit not necessary consciously: Churchill, Shakespeare, Darwin, Einstein and many others. For, as we grow and evolve on the long road toward perfection, we embark on a final series of lifetimes where we become initiated into the Mysteries and must demonstrate our own growing mastery over the various planes of mortal existence: physical, emotional, mental and so forth. Each step brings us closer to the final breakthrough that unites us with our very highest self, enabling us to graduate from the academy as a Master. We may then choose to move on to higher work, or remain on earth to help suffering humanity, as many do. So it is that the Masters of Wisdom have walked the same paths that we walk, made the same mistakes and learned accordingly, and for this reason they are known too as the Lords of Compassion.

Now, as we enter the 21st century, the Masters are returning to live among us: a relatively small number have been living in some of the great cities of the world since the 1970s, incognito for now, in preparation for Their Emergence into full visibility. They do so because it is part of Their development as a group consciousness, but also to guide us out of the present morass and world crisis into a new and far greater civilisation that will reflect man’s true inherent divinity, obscured for so long. The Masters are themselves guided by Their own Master, Maitreya, who has also been living among us for some forty years, waiting for the right time to step forward. Humanity must renounce selfishness, greed and acquisition and inaugurate the ways of the Aquarian Age: altruism, selflessness and above the principle of sharing in order to bring about justice and peace. Currently we live in a world where millions starve when there is more than enough food for all, where a tiny wealthy minority possess as much wealth as the poorest three billion, and where the environment deteriorates daily under humanity’s rape and pillage, to the peril of all.

Those who study esotericism know that this dark hour is truly the moment before the dawn, before we emerge from the edge of the abyss and climb into the brilliant sunshine of a new and far better world. But humanity must be ready in sufficient numbers to accept the new world, to renounce selfishness, greed and war. Until it is ready, Maitreya and His Masters cannot come forward, because to do so would infringe our free will, and that They cannot do.

There have been three principle exponents of Ageless Wisdom and writers about the Masters in modern times. The first, Helena Blavatsky, wrote The Secret Doctrine and Isis Unveiled in the late 19th century, and founded the Theosophist movement. Alice Bailey wrote many volumes in the earlier 20th Century (many dictated telepathically by her Master). Finally, Scottish artist Benjamin Creme founded Share International and wrote and lectured for over forty years, before passing away late last year. He enjoyed similar telepathic rapport with his Master, who wrote many articles and answered thousands of questions through Creme. These may be found in Benjamin Creme’s books and Share International magazine.

Which side are you on? Which path will you choose?

The Seven Attitudes of Mindfulness

As the modern Western lifestyle spreads around the globe, so too does metabolic syndrome — a cluster of symptoms that increases the risk of developing heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and other conditions. The good news: metabolic syndrome can be tamed by a sensible program of exercise, natural foods, stress management, and quality sleep. In his new book Turbo Metabolism, Dr. Vij distills a mass of medical research into a simple, effective program for vibrant health. Avoiding fads and gimmicks, he provides practical advice, case studies of ordinary people, and brief sections that debunk common medical myths. We hope you’ll enjoy this short excerpt from the book.

[ad name=”AdSense Responsive”]

Managing stress requires being mindful about the here and now. The barrage of stimuli we endure every day from all our electronic gadgets is the antithesis of mindfulness. Technology is constantly distracting us with stimuli from outside our current time and place.

The next time you are walking in a park on a spectacular sunny day, note how many people are staring at their electronic devices, sending or receiving messages or checking social media, when they could be enjoying the present time and place. Our modern-day addiction to devices that are supposedly “connecting us” is actually taking us to a place other than the here and now. Why are we so afraid to observe our own thoughts that we constantly need to fill our mind-space with busywork?

The Seven Attitudes of Mindfulness

by Pankaj Vij

Here are seven attitudes that define or contribute to mindfulness: nonjudgment, patience, beginner’s mind, trust, nonstriving, acceptance, and letting go.

Nonjudgment: Take the stance of an impartial witness to your own experience as it happens. This is the ideal “witness state” of a human being. Notice the stream of thoughts and judgments: “This thought is good/bad/neutral.” Become aware without trying to stop the flow. The mind is constantly judging situations and people, but mindfulness means seeing things as they are without adding judgment.

Patience: Let things unfold in their own time, and practice patience with yourself. A child may try to help a butterfly emerge by breaking open a chrysalis, but this will likely harm or kill the butterfly. Why rush through some moments in order to get to other, “better” ones? Your life is what you experience in each moment. No particular experience is better or worse than another; only our judgments label them as such. Be completely open to each moment, accepting its fullness, knowing that, like the butterfly, things will emerge in their own time.

Beginner’s mind: Too often we let our thinking and our beliefs about what we “know” stop us from seeing things as they really are. Cultivate a willingness to see everything as if for the first time. Be receptive to new possibilities. Don’t get stuck in a rut of your own expertise. Recognize that each moment is unique and contains unique possibilities.

Try cultivating a beginner’s mind with someone you know: Ask yourself if you are seeing this person with fresh eyes, as he or she really is. Ask yourself the same question with your problems, with the sky, with your dog, with the clerk in the corner shop.

Trust: Develop a basic trust in yourself and your feelings. Trust in your own authority and intuition, even if you make some “mistakes” along the way. Honor your feelings. Take responsibility for yourself and your own well-being.

Nonstriving: Practicing mindfulness means seeking no goal other than being who you already are. Pay attention to how you are right now, whatever that is. Just watch. The best way to achieve your own goals is to back off from striving and instead focus on carefully seeing and accepting things as they are, moment by moment. With patience and regular practice, movement toward your goal will happen by itself.

Acceptance: See things as they actually are in the present. If you have a headache, accept that you have a headache. We often waste a lot of time and energy denying what is fact. We try to force situations into how we would like them to be. This creates more tension and prevents positive change from occurring. Now is the only time we have for anything. You have to accept yourself as you are before you can really change.

Acceptance is not passive; it does not mean you have to like everything about yourself and abandon your principles and values. It does not mean that you should stop trying to break free of your own self-destructive habits or give up your desire to change and grow. Acceptance is a willingness to see things as they are. You are much more likely to know what to do and have an inner conviction to act when you have a clear picture of what is actually happening.

Letting go: Letting go is a way of letting things be, of accepting things as they are. Let things go and just watch. If you find it particularly difficult to let go of something because it has such a strong hold on your mind, you can direct your attention to what “holding on” feels like. Holding on is the opposite of letting go. Looking at the ways we hold on will show a lot about its opposite. You already know how to let go. Every night when we allow ourselves to fall asleep, we let go.
