On August 8th:
New Age guru Deepak Chopra is kicking off what he calls “the world’s largest syncretized meditation” in history, which will attempt to hail in a massive tipping point toward a global shift to peace.
Chopra is encouraging people to join in and perhaps even get into the Guiness Book of World Records – or at the very least usher in a more just, peaceful, healthier, more sustainable and happier world.
The name of this event: Seduction of Spirit. I kid you not. It’s part of a week-long retreat in which Deepak, Gabrielle Bernstein, and others will guide participants through reflective workshops, yoga practices, and guided meditations dedicated to increasing global consciousness and connection, and helping attendees build their personal practice and find inner peace.
The retreat will be held in Toronto and the meditation part will be simulcast over the internet around the world.
On August 11th:
Oprah and Deepak launch a free 21-Day Meditation Experience, offering daily guided audio meditations via an online, interactive program. It’s called, "Finding Your Flow," and teaches people how to go into a deep silence to experience and influence their own energy flow, which they claim is a “dynamic current that attracts more joy, love, and fulfillment.”
On September 5th
Oprah is going on national tour with Deepak and Emergent guru Rob Bell. Bell is the former pastor of Mars Hill church who denies the doctrine of a real Hell (making him a heretic in the true sense of the word), and is a strong supporter of homosexual marriage.
