Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
This film features medical doctor and author Deepak Chopra, who has done much to popularize principles relating to the body/mind connection in health care issues. Taken from a series of lectures, these excerpts distill some of Dr. Chopra's basic points. He maintains that wellness is achieved by maintaining a balanced awareness within, and that the body will follow the lead of the mind. He introduces the viewer to the Indian health care system of ayurveda, which treats the whole person. With frequent allusions to modern physics and mystical literature, Dr. Chopra talks about the nature of perception. He asks, What is the body? The mind? Where is the location of the soul?
