"Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It's a way of entering into the quiet that's already there - buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day." ~ Deepak Chopra, MD
About 4 years before I actually left the pharmaceutical research industry permanently, I was consistently finding myself very unhappy & unfulfilled in my career. Every day, although I worked at home, I would bring stress, frustration, even anger to my computer and phone, so naturally, I attracted much to be stressed, frustrated and angry about. It became a vicious cycle that continued to plummet me deeper into discontent. One day, while I was checking emails, my Chopra Center newsletter was in my inbox promoting "Journey Into Healing", their signature mind-body Ayurvedic immersion workshop. When I clicked on it and looked at the program, I found myself very attracted to the content, not to mention just needing to get away, and California seemed to be the perfect spot. As I continued to read about the program, it really seemed to be calling to me in a way I hadn't experienced. I had been a student of Deepak's through his books & lectures for over 20 years, but had never been to the Chopra Center. Thinking seriously about signing up for this program, but still not sure, I clicked back to my inbox, where right beneath the Chopra Center email was my next Netflix selection entitled, "Ayurveda: Ancient Wisdom for Modern Day Living". I had apparently had this documentary in my queue and completely forgot about it. So, I took that as a sign, went to Journey Into Healing and I felt like I came home. I felt so incredibly happy, fulfilled, and with a new sense of my Dharma (purpose) or at least a direction in which I was to head next. I signed up to be a Perfect Health (Ayurveda) teacher before I left and came home on the red-eye completely exhilarated. Although I was ready to write a resignation letter as soon as I got home, I still needed to stay grounded and sane and continue in my corporate life until such a time came when I could leave it for good. I continued with my Chopra Center education until I finished the Vedic Mastery Program which includes the three courses below. Already a metaphysician, my thirst for Vedic knowledge and wisdom propelled me into a diploma program in Ayurveda as well as an Ayurvedic Medicine Internship in Coimbatore, India. I left pharma in 2008, founded the Kalyana Centre in 2009 and The Chopra Center has made it possible for me to bring these beautiful teachings and programs to you here on the Main Line/Philadelphia area at my centre. I hope you will take advantage of my experience in both the Western and Eastern modalities of healing and allow me to be a guide on your journey towards better health and wellbeing of your body, mind, heart and spirit. It would be my honor and pleasure to serve you. ~ Namaste ~ Enjoy!!
Primordial Sound Meditation -Learn How to Create Inner Peace in Your Life! Practiced for thousands of years, meditation is a tool for rediscovering the body's own inner intelligence.

These primordial sounds are based on the vibration the universe was creating at the moment of your birth. Your practice will help you manage stress & reduce anxiety, improve your relationships, enhance your sleep patterns, create inner peace, lower your blood pressure, connect more deeply to spirit.

Dosha Quiz - From the five elements, the three doshas are derived—Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. Known as mind-body types, the doshas express particular patterns of energy—unique blends of physical, emotional, and mental characteristics. In Ayurveda, health is defined as the dynamic state of balance between mind, body, and environment. It is possible for each of us to achieve and maintain a vibrant and joyful state of health by identifying our mind-body type and then creating a lifestyle that sustains and nurtures our unique nature. Take the Dosha Quiz and determine: “What’s my dosha?” If more than one quality is applicable in each characteristic, choose the one that applies the most. This link will take you to the Dosha Quiz on the Chopra.com website. For help in interpreting your results, contact Dr. Joanna at Joanna@thekalyanacentre.com or 484-412-8815.
