Join Deepak at JCCC as he creates a roadmap for "higher health" based on the latest findings in both mainstream and alternative medicine.
Deepak’s presentation will offer practical ways to experience higher consciousness, transformation and healing, and will address questions, such as:
- Are we in the midst of a major paradigm shift in science?
- Is the universe becoming self-aware in the human nervous system?
- Is the next stage of human development conscious evolution?
- Can we develop a higher awareness of who we are, what we yearn for, and what we can ultimately do about it?
