Not His Best Work
on February 11, 2010
I am very familiar with Deepak Chopra's work, and I am a big fan of his. I am right in line with his beliefs, and my new favorite book is Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul, and I very much recommend that book and/or audio cd. I have both. I have MANY of his books, and love them all. But THIS. This dvd is just wrong - I don't know what Deepak had in mind when he decided to wear Elton John-like red sparkly glasses. It completely corrupts his message, in my opinion. And I LOVE this guy! My husband and I just couldn't help laughing most of the time while we were watching this because the glasses are just that distracting. They sparkle! Deepak Chopra is talking about meditation, chakras, changing your perspective, unity of all things, and these glasses are catching the light everywhere he turns. This is a great thinker and he's wearing movie star glitter. The one saving grace are the two meditations under "Extras" on the second dvd. Those are quite enjoyable. But honestly, I also didn't like the audience format and the small groups of people he sits with. It's all distracting, and keeps me from wanting to watch again - again, the glasses and the extra people corrupt the message. I would have preferred just having him speak to the camera.
