“Deepak Chopra reminds us not to be distracted by the idols of our age but to marvel at the deep truths of being. Metahuman is a handbook to becoming fully alive.”
~ Arthur C. Brooks, PH.D., Professor at the Harvard Kennedy School, and author of Love Your Enemies
“Deepak Chopra successfully argues that consciousness is the sole creator of self, mind, brain, body, and the universe, as we know it.
Deepak then teaches us that truly grasping this revolutionary idea will effectively remove the limiting belief systems and negativity that may be holding us back from achieving our maximum human potential. Highly recommended!”
~ Dr. Rudolph T. Tanzi, Professor of Neurology, Harvard Medical School
Deepak Chopra’s latest work, Metahuman, is a fascinating blend of his background in science, and his abiding passion for metaphysics. He contends that we are all capable of incredible awareness and consciousness, and he uses the concept of Metahuman as a framework for this new theory of being.
To be metahuman means to move past the limitation constructed by the mind and enter a new state of awareness where we have deliberate and concrete access to peak experiences that can transform people’s lives from the inside out.
Humans do this naturally—to a point. For centuries the great artists, scientists, writers, and many so-called ordinary people have gone beyond the everyday physical world. But if we could channel these often bewildering experiences, what would happen? Chopra argues we would wake up to experiences that would blow open your body, mind, and soul.
Metahuman invites the reader to walk the path here and now. Waking up, we learn, isn’t just about mindfulness or meditation. Waking up, to become metahuman, is to expand our consciousness in all that we think, say, and do.
By going beyond, we liberate ourselves from old conditioning and all the mental constructs that underlie anxiety, tension, and ego-driven demands. Waking up allows life to make sense as never before. To make this as practical as possible, Chopra ends the book with a 31-day guide to becoming metahuman. Once you wake up, he writes, life becomes transformed, because pure consciousness—which is the field of all possibilities—dawns in your life. Only then does your infinite potential become your personal reality.
