Things I Carry: A Dream Weaver and More

Since I travel around the world, I always carry these devices: Mybasis, Dream Weaver, and my iPhone and iPad in my toolkit.

Dreamweaver - Deepak Chopra

I've recently become an advisor for Basis, a biosensor device and online personal dashboard that I use to track exercise, sleep and heart rate during meditation and when I'm active – bio regulation is an obsession of mine. I wear the device called mybasis on my wrist to continuously collect information about my body including my heart rate, skin temperature, perspiration and movement.

 

I can monitor and improve my healthy habits in activity and rest with the personal dashboard to maintain a joyful energetic body and restful alert mind. These small changes can make a big difference.

 

Working with Harvard neuroscientist Dr. Rudy Tanzi, we have created a light and sound mind machine called the Dream Weaver which safely and automatically puts the user into a meditative, relaxed, dream, sleep, creative or altered state of consciousness. The device is controlled by digital programs I have designed and narrated with music. When the program ends you are back to 'normal' except with a smile, a sweet memory and you are more relaxed. Rudy, I and many of our friends (some daily meditators and others who never have meditated) now use the device regularly.

 

I use my iPad and iPad to write and connect with social media networks, and record my travels with pictures. Both devices keep me connected to my family, office and friends, which is important to me. For instance if I am on a writing deadline, I can easily send my publisher notes and edits. Better yet, my 10 year-old granddaughter wanted to share an essay that she had written while I was recently in the Middle East. My iphone provided me the ability to read it and let her know how much I enjoyed her sharing with me. A few months ago we launched the free app Chopra Connect, which provides unprecedented access on one platform for all of my news; tweets; feeds from my websites, Chopra Center, Intent.com, and YouTube/ChopraWell videos, the upcoming Sages and Scientists Symposium 2013; and my public lecture schedule. Twenty years ago this was not possible. I love the way technology provides a platform for connectivity.

  • Lol dear Deepak, did you come that far already? Have the dollar signs already in your eyes? Hope you will still have enough time left to stay without (commercial) thoughts, next to worrying too much about your health :) Am really laughing my heart out seeing the above picture. That alone will keep me healthy!

  • Technology IS making fantastic strides,Deepak. Alas So are costs. I am a long time(early 80`s) follower of your writings & theories on MindBody. Which has along with my total & absolute belief in my self,taken me safely through a few dis-ease threatening periods,including prosate cancer & chronic rheumatism. I`m 78 now & chugging along as happy as a lark in a meadow. With your connectivity ,do you know of any breaks for a 20yr retiree on a basic pension. Please do not perceive this as a `begging letter`,but rather a inquiry to obtain a `mybasis` device at a reasonable cost yours sincerely Liam Sweeney

  • Dear Mr Chopra I am 54 and so excited about this new device. I live in south africa and yes would have loved to own The Dream Weaver. I would just like to say thank you for all the free meditation which I have enjoyed and congrats on the Dream Weaver. God Bless . Kind Regards Suraya

  • Ronan Skelly variety is the spice in life. I do not see a correlation between putting chemicals into your physical body and using something which stimulates relaxation of the body and food for the spirit. I have a friend who owns one of the dream weavers and she loves it. She says it helps her meditate more deeply. That's the point right? Kudos to Deepak for his pioneering and experimental spirit! He certainly coached me to a new level of living.

  • This `gadget` is the high-tech of mind-programming. The aim of this ugly manipulation with person`s consciousness is to control him/her as a slave. Actually, most of celebs are mind-controlled slaves. You can read about mind programming in the book `The Deeper Insight into the Illuminati Formula` by Fritz Springmeier. Any form of mind control goes against the purpose for which human beings were created. And this purpose is: to serve God, the Creator ( not Lucifer), to grow spiritually, and to take care of the creation as the vice-regents of God.

  • An educator, not disabled, not a sheep. Dee is talking about utilizing technology as a tool and a means for gathering data, or exploration, not a replacement for a practice, such as meditation. The work he does offers others to consider that of self discovery not blind faith. He is a pioneer in the field of natural holistic living, which has as its cornerstone: self-reliance. Wait until you are 103 and some techno-geek offers you a free gadget so use whilst you sleep, you set it on your forehead, slumber and then it records, all your dreams, so you can watch them over coffee in the morning with your great-great grandkids....wouldn't you be telling all your friends about it? I sure would, Ronan, neeheehee ♥

  • que buena vida

    Manuel Perez // 2013-05-11 19:09:20 // //
  • The point I am making is that any 'mind altering' be it from a substance or electronically induced damages the nervous system and the brain...I was comparing Mr. Chopra's machine with drugs because they serve the same purpose and have the same effect. ie. a false experience of enlightenment induced by an unnatural, or outside substance. I am really shocked that a man I had admired so much for so many years would stoop to peddling such rubbish. I know all you 'followers' are seeing this as an attack on this 'wise man' , but why do you need to follow anyone anyway.....that is the last I will say on the subject..I am sure you will all be delighted to hear this...apologies if I have shaken anyone's crutch.

  • There is no mention of "drugs" in Dee's post, he is talking about the ability to collect, receive and store data. In other articles he promotes Ayurvedic Supplements, usually organic herb and spice based often. You are mistaken Ronan Skelly. This man is a hard-working, dedicated heart-driven philo-healer.

    Alicia Dane // 2013-05-11 12:47:14 // //
  • I am very fond of Deepak and one of his books started my personal journey towards God. I am surprised at how promotional this article is. I feel uncomfortable whether Deepak cares too much about success and keeping trendy and relevant. I guess he`s human though after all! Still love him, and he`s the best.

  • He has lost his way totally, real meditation is the most natural thing in the world...this is just a substitute for mind altering substances, drugs that damage the brain and nervous system...I am shocked that I man I admired for so many years has turned out to be nothing more than a drug dealer.

    Bobby Hackland // 2013-05-11 12:20:56 // //
  • I do not like the idea of using electronic devices to `meditate` I feel you have lost your way Deepak...real meditation is the most natural thing in the world.... using silly gadgets like you have described is just one step away from using mind altering substances to give the mind a false impression of `enlightenment`...I am very disappointed that you have resorted to becoming a person who is taking advantage of peoples genuine desire for enlightenment for financial gain. Why not go the whole hog and sell heroine of some other drug. Maybe you should have a long look at yourself, and try to see past your greed and ego. I do wish you well, but please stop damaging people who look to you for guidance...you would be better off just stopping, and developing your own intelligence and then start you preaching from the basis of real knowledge.

  • WOOOW!!! Is all this technology that is populating the world the manifestation of the "fourth" dimension, the "singularity", the dawning of the "golden age" of humanity, which there has been so much talk of in recent time? I just learned of Second Life virtual worlds, which many people have been living in for some time now, in a book titled "The Social Media Bible" by Lon Safko. It Blew my Mind! My biggest curiosity around all of this is: How do we reconcile our physical bodies/lives with the virtual? I`m really impressed with the MYBASIS device you are using, because it does just that. Thank you Deepak for being a pioneer in this "New Age" we are living in!!!
