Based on the latest findings in mainstream and alternative medicine, Deepak Chopra will present a lecture at Oregon State University on how to create a “roadmap for higher health.”

The event, “The Future of Wellbeing,” will be held on Feb. 23 and aims to examine ideas such as: whether the consciousness governs over the construct of the physical universe, if the universe and human nervous system are becoming self-aware, if humans have the ability to influence the future evolution of cosmos and how the understanding of consciousness can enhance the capacity for total well-being.

 Chopra will explore these questions as well as ways to experience higher consciousness, transformation and healing.
