I have spent the last two years working on Living with Intent: My Somewhat Messy Journey to Purpose, Peace and Joy — so it is both exciting and nerve wracking to finally begin sharing it! If you are interested in purchasing the book, I would be so grateful if you consider pre-ordering it now, and I am offering a special bonus gift to those who do.
Writing this book was a thought provoking and challenging journey to figure out what balance and purpose means to me. From going on a health retreat to visiting Amma, the hugging guru, I challenged myself physically, emotionally and spiritually. I spent time with my grandparents in India, recommitted to my meditation practice, paid attention to my eating and internal dialogue in a way I have never done before, and discovered unexpected joy in my role as a soccer mom. I also interviewed brilliant thinkers like my father (Deepak Chopra), Eckhart Tolle, Marianne Williamson, Arianna Huffington, Dr. Andrew Weil, Dr. Dan Siegel, and Caryl Stern, the President of the US Fund for UNICEF. In the book I share some of the laughter, frustration and lessons I learned along the way.
When you order the book now, you can receive a free copy of my online meditation course: Meditate with Mallika Chopra. The course outlines the benefits of meditation and the basics of the practice, with both text, videos and exercises. For those of you new to meditation, it should provide a way to begin your practice easily, and for those who already know how to meditate, it should help re-motivate you and anchor your practice with more knowledge. To take advantage of this offer, please order the book from any retailer and then submit your pre-order confirmation details in the form found here.
