Publisher's Summary

Training the mind... Healing the body... Transforming your life

Over the past ten years, mind-body medicine has been revolutionizing the way we think about our health. Millions of people are discovering that their thoughts, their feelings, and their physical well-being are intimately connected - and this is transforming the way we eat, exercise, work, and even relate to one another.

During this program, you'll become thoroughly familiar with the philosophical foundations of mind body health care, you'll also learn how to:

  • Integrate the healing traditions of the East with the latest practical discoveries of Western science
  • Change the way you eat - or even when you eat - to create greater mental and physical energy
  • Sleep well every night
  • Identify what makes you uniquely different from anyone who has ever lived as well as what you share with all of humanity
  • Exercise better, not harder
  • Enter the silent spaces between your thoughts to create a rejuvenating sense of alertness
  • Understand how the process of disease really works, and how you can break the progression that leads to illness
  • Use your heart as well as your brain to make insightful choices and accurate life decisions
  • Increase your personal efficiency by discovering the best times of day for mental and physical activities
  • Discover the intimate connection between your physical body and your emotional and spiritual well-being

In the more than ten years that they've worked together, Dr. Simon and Deepak Chopra have developed a shared vision of what good health means and how to place it within the reach of every human being. Training the Mind, Healing the Body is the full realization of that vision.

Meditation exercises skipped

This is a great introduction to Ayurvedic principles. The recording is a compilation talks from a retreat and the tracks are split between two speakers. The only thing that could be improved is the flow. There are gaps that are a bit long. Which could be intentional but they aren't explained. Also, there is a meditation introduced but then not included in the recording.

Too wordy

Way too technical for me. Too Psychological for the lay person. I would not suggest to the average seeker looking enlightenment.

A very clarifying experience!

I love this book because it clearly explained the importance of taking care of our lives through meditation, the foods we eat, and everything that we put in our bodies. Living a life full of love and passion is what I learned from reading this book.I would recommend this book to anyone who desires to live a healthier and fuller lifestyle.Those that want to reach out for more in every aspect of their life by being aware of the now instead of worrying about the future and the past. I gave it this rating because the book really helped me to channel my energy in a more positive direction and live life with a lot more love and passion... Also, The importance of spirituality and being able to meditate at least twice a day which will help push you towards what you want out of life.

Mind Blowing!

The first few chapters were written to form the premise that we are light and energy in a scientific manner. Once they established the premise, the authors were able to inform/educate their readers about the power within us to heal ourselves.
The rest of the book shared benefits of meditation, how to id our body type, and "treat" our bodies for a better health and ultimately more fulfilling life.

If you are are in a "rut" and are ready for a change, it starts with the way you think.

I highly recommend this book.

A new way of thinking....

I purchased this audio to learn of alternative approaches to health and wholeness, and I was not disappointed. Although I will need to listen to this several times to glean the ideas more completely, I learned enough this first time to be challenged to do some life changes. This book is not for the faint of heart, as it requires the listener to be fully engaged. Well worth the time investment though for those who enjoy a challenge.

Amazing content,very educational

I did like both authors. Deepak was little more scientific but funny in the same time always trying to input some story inside or something for easier remembering. Really easy listening. David and Deepak are making really nice contrast between scientific and practical use in the real life. Little hard to absorb all information in one listening.

Loved it

What did you like most about Training the Mind, Healing the Body?

It was my first introduction to Deepak Chopra and David Simon. I will certainly be following the authors, and reading more of their books. Both the authors represented their beliefs beautifully, and their personalities shone through. I have made changes to my life after reading this book, and in two weeks I have already noticed the difference. Thank you Deepak Chopra and David Simon.

Any additional comments?

Very entertaining, as well as educational.

I'm no medic ,,but!

A great introduction to self maintenance from a Asia perspective. I have tried a few of the recommendations and found they suit me in preference to my life style and fitness level.
I felt I had to learn more and yet at the same time I had enough to get started.

I've listened to it 3 times now, love it! thanks!!

I find this audio book extremely educational, you learn a lot about the body, mind and soul. but what I love most of all is that it has so many moments where either Dr. Chopra or Dr. Simon have made me laugh out loud. Just simply superb, thank you both for this wonderful audio book / recording of your seminar.
