Deepak Chopra presents ten lessons to help build awareness and change the distorted energy patterns that are the root cause of aging, infirmity, and disease.

Fifteen years after his #1 New York Times bestseller, Ageless Body, Timeless Mind, Deepak Chopra revisits "the forgotten miracle"–the body's infinite capacity for change and renewal. You cannot take advantage of this miracle, Chopra says, unless you are willing to completely reinvent your body, transforming it from a material object to a dynamic, flowing process. "Your physical body is a fiction," Chopra contends. Every cell is made up of two invisible ingredients: awareness and energy.

Transformation can't stop with the body, however; it must involve the soul. The soul–seemingly invisible, aloof, and apart from the material world–actually creates the body. Only by going to the level of the soul will you access your full potential, bringing more intelligence, creativity, and awareness into every aspect of your life.

Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul delivers ten breakthroughs–five for the body, five for the soul–that lead to self-transformation. In clear, accessible terms, Chopra shows us how to commit ourselves to deeper awareness, focus on relationships instead of consumption, embrace every day as a new world, and transcend the obstacles that afflict body and mind.

Deepak Chopra has inspired millions with his profound teachings over the years. His bestselling books have explored the mind/body connection and the power of spirit. With his latest book, he invites you to experience with him the miracles that unfold when we connect the body directly to the awesome mysteries that give life meaning–directly to the soul. When you have completed this journey, after reinventing your body and resurrecting your soul, the ecstasy of true wholeness becomes possible for the very first time.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Dr. Chopra moves us from the mundane lives that trap many of us to the sacred insights offered by our souls.”

    Dr. Mehmet C. Oz

  • Alternative medicine guru Chopra, author of more than 50 books, argues that the bond between body and soul has been severed; it's his hope that humankind is about to embark on a restoration project that will give the soul the attention it deserves. Chopra presents five 'breakthroughs' that address the body and five that address the soul. He also walks readers through a fascinating discussion of how energy affects spiritual and physical health, and includes a scored personal energy efficiency quiz. According to Chopra, when 'subtle energy' becomes blocked, awareness can act like an invisible force that turns unhealthy energy around (he also explains how the expression of genes can be altered by lifestyle changes). Chopra encourages readers to follow their inner guidance, to embrace a journey to higher consciousness, to expand awareness through meditation and other methods, to ask for guidance and then wait for it to appear, and to trust their instincts. By accepting the over-arching power of the 'invisible' or non-physical world, Chopra maintains that we can begin to nourish a state of wholeness in which there is no longer a disconnect between body, mind, and soul. Though Chopra offers 10 'simple steps' to wholeness (including focusing on relationships instead of consumption), this is a multilayered text to savor and study; readers will continue to contemplate the author's message long after the final page is turned.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Greta | 2/18/2014

    " I don't know what it was about this book that made me sort of not like it. It has some fascinating ideas about the body and its relationship with the soul. There wasn't anything I found unbelievable or unhelpful. Maybe it was his anecdotal writing style. Maybe it was just a bit too deep for me to comprehend all at once. While I've read other books on this topic and find the subject to be an important one, I don't think this is the best book to read about it. I know this is not a very good review, but then again, I don't think it's a very good book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 2/17/2014

    " Very interesting author with ideas that made me think. I will definitely read more from him. "

    " repeats his material a bit, but still very enjoyable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily | 2/2/2014

    " I had to return this book to the library before finishing it. I really liked the concepts presented in this book but I'm a slow reader and with self help book I feel the need to do all of the work while reading the book before continuing on to the end. Definitely recommend this book, it's an interesting theory on how the body, mind and soul connects. And how to work through the parts of your life that feel disconnected from you. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 1/31/2014

    " Dr. Chopra had a lot of nice things to say in this book and that's really it. It's a great first step to changing your perspective but too vague and general to be of any deeper value. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chavon | 1/25/2014

    " Excellent, mind opening book. so many great quotes. This book will serve as a reference point as I conitnue my journey of knowledge. Similar principles to The Secret and A New Earth. Very interesting to read about reinventing the body and being more connectd to it. Looking forward to reading more books by Deepak Chopra. "

    " Listening via audio...I must say, this is one of Chopra's best. I love how he takes these HUGE complex spiritual concepts and shrinks them down to something easy to digest mentally. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Seung Eun | 12/17/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kgowsell | 12/16/2013

    " I enjoyed this book with its practical applications. Sometimes we need reminders and this was the book I needed to help me refocus on the mind, body, spirt connection. It is worthy of a reread from time to time! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 12/13/2013

    " The author spent far too much time preaching to the choir. No one who picked up this book would need to be convinced that the mind/body connection is important, etc.. We already get that, or we wouldn't have picked this book up in the first place. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/11/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 A.L. | 4/13/2011

    " It was a thought-provoking mish-mash of ideas from New Age, Christianity, Hinduism and Buddhism. I liked the practical advice on meditation the best. I also liked his distinction between reflection, contemplation and meditation. Some of his claims seemed too extreme however. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rod | 3/30/2011

    " OK, not exactly my favorite topic but this book helped open my mind to meditation. The world is a beautiful place if we stop to smell the roses once in a while. "
