[dropcap]U[/dropcap]nity on the Bay continues to be a catalyst for spiritual awakening, evolution, and action, through inviting world-renowned speakers and authors to the community to share their wisdom as part of Unity on the Bay’s Speaker Series events.
Unity on the Bay and presenting sponsor “Bali Retreat by ColleenDupont.com” will welcome the next Speaker Series guest, Deepak Chopra, on Tuesday, May 5. It’s a chance to spend an evening with one of the most brilliant, entertaining, and eloquent contemporary thinkers and authors on spiritual matters. During this event, Deepak will focus on the “Future of Wellbeing” by creating a roadmap for “higher health,” based on the latest findings in both mainstream and alternative medicine, and he will explain the research and ideas that he drew from to write his newest book, The 13th Disciple: A Spiritual Adventure.
Deepak also will address many questions, some of which include: Are we in the midst of a major paradigm shift in science? Is there an ultimate reality? Does consciousness conceive, govern, construct and become the physical universe? Is the universe becoming self aware in the human nervous system? Is the next stage of human development conscious evolution?
