    Jul 28 2021

    "When you want to change your life in any way, one truth always comes first: You can only change what you are aware of. The choice is simple: expand your awareness or live without real change." (Deepak Chopra)

    The surest path to self-development is through our vital connection to the world around us. That’s the lesson in Deepak Chopra’s essential new podcast, Mind Body Zone. Over 12 episodes, Chopra, the preeminent thought leader in this space, holds intimate conversations with a range of extraordinary guests to explore the challenges we each face, and reveal how they've worked to transcend the ordinary and redefine their lives through harnessing a mind-body connection.

    Among Deepak’s dynamic guests: activist and advocate X González, yoga teacher and body positivity advocate Jessamyn Stanley, anti-racism educator Layla Saad, multidisciplinary artist Jon Batiste, U.S. poet laureate Joy Harjo; media pioneer Oprah Winfrey, and many more. Each conversation concludes with a bespoke meditation, led by Chopra, designed to help listeners further absorb and put into practice newly explored ideas and themes.

    Join Deepak Chopra and discover how together we can each become whole.

In 2020, Jon Batiste redefined what it means to be productive. Recording and releasing two Grammy-nominated albums, check. Cultural and social advocacy, check. Band leading and music directing on the Late Show, check. Practicing, learning, sharing, growing, check.
Was he done there? Batiste? Nah. He decided to build a studio in his dressing room at the renowned Ed Sullivan Theater and invited a few talented friends—including singer-songwriter Autumn Rowe and producer Kizzo—to lay the blueprint for what is destined to become a seminal masterpiece of black pop American music, his forthcoming album, WE ARE. Not to mention, he put all of this together in 6 days. Again, redefining productivity. He ended the year with his music and likeness being centrally featured in the Disney/Pixar film Soul. His composing and songwriting will be featured in his large-scale, genre-melding symphonic work "American Symphony," set to premiere at Carnegie Hall in 2021 and he has been developing a broadway musical about the life of famed painter Jean-Michel Basquiat.
Jon balances a demanding performance schedule—which often includes his signature ‘love riot’ street parades—with public speaking engagements, masterclasses, brand partnerships, community activism, and acting roles. In the wake of George Floyd's murder and in the lead up to the election, he organized several peaceful protest marches, leading thousands in the streets of New York City. He played himself on the HBO series Tremé and appeared in Spike Lee’s Red Hook Summer and Da Sweet Blood of Jesus.

I got a lot out of this.

There were a couple interviews that just weren't up my alley but that's okay. I took a lot away from this, overall very uplifting and insightful.

Profounding

Thank you for sharing this! If no one else was impacted by your words & wisdom, know that you have impacted one. I often pray for more clarity & wisdom on what is the true meaning of my life. You have given me more insight into my own self awareness & purpose. This was better than any "self help" book on the market. I am 46 yrs old physically & am just now with in the last 12 months, truly understood who my true self is. It's truly what I believe as a healthcare professional that many people, like myself was, do NOT indeed know who they really are. I have completed the 1st 3 lessons & am excited to complete the rest!!!
