Wellness Expert Deepak Chopra’s Favorite Listens for Spiritual Transformation

The best-selling author’s work is all about transforming your mind, body, and soul for the better. Here are his favorite listens to help you do just that, and guide you on your journey to a better you.

Many people think of meditation as a process that is practiced for a few minutes a day to achieve mindfulness, focus, and relaxation. But for Deepak Chopra, meditation isn't just a good habit, it's a way of life. In his latest guide, Total MeditationChopra dives into a 52-week program to help listeners transform their lives through this ancient practice. Here, the prolific author recommends some of his own favorite listens: five consciousness-expanding audiobooks that have guided him in his own spiritual journey.

The Bhagavad Gita

No book confronts every spiritual question as dramatically as the Gita. Besides being a good modern translation, this version has an exceptional reader in Paul Bazely.

The Gospel According to Jesus

As a translator of the world’s great spiritual traditions, Stephen Mitchell is unsurpassed. His book on Jesus whets the appetite for his Tao Te Ching, Bhagavad Gita, and more. His translations have remained with me a long time.

A Brief History of Time

Sometimes called the biggest best seller that nobody actually reads, the audio version of this little classic is a perfect introduction to cosmic riddles that I have been pondering for my whole career. It’s not as tough to listen to as its reputation might indicate, either.

One Mind

A fellow physician who is willing to break boundaries, Larry Dossey has conducted a one-man safari into the mind-body connection, consciousness, and reality beyond the five senses. Nobody has done it better or with more probing conclusions.

The Ending of Time

No one was a more fascinating spiritual personality that Krishnamurti, and David Bohm was Einstein’s most farseeing follower. Here they are together in a series of taped conversations filled with many insights and challenges. The result is mind-bending.
