Deepak Chopra joins CIHS Community
The California Institute for Human Science is delighted to announce the appointment of Dr. Deepak Chopra as Distinguished Professor of Consciousness Studies and Wellbeing.
Dr. Chopra is a world-renowned pioneer in mind-body medicine and personal transformation. Beginning a unifying dialogue as an endocrinologist, Dr. Chopra ushered the science of consciousness, spirituality and wellbeing to the forefront of American discourse. Dr. Chopra’s work excellently dovetails with the vision and mission of CIHS to bring the integration of science and consciousness into global integral education that furthers the fields of psychology, healthcare, and integrative philosophy. Dr. Chopra expressed his appreciation of CIHS, “I am pleased to have the opportunity to work with CIHS, which for over two decades has been working to heal the unfounded schism between science and spirituality.” He will offer specialized academic guidance and special events as well as participate in strategic advancement dialogues that only his unique background in the field of science and application of consciousness studies can provide.
Co-President and Academic Dean, Dr. Hope Umansky, asserted, “I am thrilled to welcome Dr. Chopra into the CIHS community. I cannot think of a more renowned specialist who aligns with our academic values. The students and larger community will likewise benefit greatly from his association.”
This new collaboration will also provide CIHS access to and the opportunity to work with the Chopra Foundation’s ISHAR (Integrated Studies Health Archive & Research), an archive of cultural and scientific knowledge, research, and discussion on integrative medicine and consciousness studies. Co-President and Executive Dean, Dr. Thomas Brophy, noted, “This collaboration will provide new and expanded opportunities for students and researchers to advance the science of consciousness. In turn, CIHS will provide unique perspectives and support on the science of consciousness studies as research opportunities unfold with Dr. Chopra and ISHAR.”
