Deepak Chopra is partnering with Alicia Keys for a new, three-week meditative experience.
The audio experience entitled Activating The Divine Feminine: The Path To Wholeness is a free, 21-day program that helps listeners activate their feminine energy, find peace and restore harmony into their lives for personal growth and fulfillment.
“To have peace in the world, we need to be peaceful within. To see love in the world, we have to share our love and generosity of spirit. To open the door to abundance, we have to experience gratitude,” Chopra shared in the Divine Feminine’s introductory video.
Chopra, an author, alternative medicine guru and one of the world’s leading wellness advocates, has previously hosted other 21-day meditations as part of a franchise, including the 21 Days of Abundance and 21 Days of Gratitude, co-guided with Oprah Winfrey.
As explained on the Chopra Center website, feminine energy exists within all human beings, regardless of their gender identities. When masculine and feminine energy collides, we return to wholeness.
"The Divine Feminine is often overlooked or silenced by structures that promote an imbalance of masculine energy," Chopra said, Forbes reports. "Love, compassion, and receptivity exist at the source of the Divine Feminine and when we allow these energies to emerge in our lives, we create space for nurturing and healing both personally and collectively. I am forever grateful to Alicia for this partnership, she is an incarnation of the Divine Feminine and her words will help bring people together and provide peace and solace that the world needs."
“My consistent spiritual practice began about six years ago, after I gave birth to my son Genesis,” the Grammy-award-winning singer shared. “Like so many new mom’s I was exhausted, but the depletion was more than physiological; my spirit was shot. I needed to do something so I could continue to be a good mother to my children, partner to my husband, and friend to myself.”
Now, she is on a quest to enlighten others and encourage wellness habits through not only the meditation series, but her skincare line, Soulcare, to help rejuvenate the mind, body and spirit.
Through dedication to self-care rituals, Keys has been able to connect to the divine energy that extends beyond the human experience.
“I believe the Divine Feminine is an extremely powerful force within all of us. It has characteristics that we associate with mothering: it helps you grow, it helps you create, it cultivates who you are,” Keys wrote in a piece for USA Today.
“One of the reasons we give the Earth the title of “Mother Earth” is because of the Divine Feminine. Everything grows on Earth. She feeds you, holds you, cares for you and supports you, makes sure you’re good. The caretakers among us know it requires a lot of strength and energy to do that. The Divine Feminine is all about the associations we have with a nurturing mother. And that force is within each of us, waiting to be uncoiled,” she added.
The 40-year-old also referenced patriarchy’s role in destruction, and how tapping into feminine energy will restore balance to a world that has experienced tremendous discord.
“For so long, that overload of masculine energy has run the world, creating a lot of chaos and hate," she said.
“We see it in racism and white supremacy, gender inequity, gun violence, police violence, violence against AAPI people, transgender and gender non-conforming people, LGTBQIA+ discrimination and archaic mind states. Sometimes it feels like the world is f****d! But to counteract it, we have to open the door to the Divine Feminine in us and its ability to repair and create. By tapping into the nurturing energy within, we can begin the transformation towards balance we’ve been searching for,” Keys continued.
Through the Divine Feminine series, Chopra and Keys are attempting to reach one billion people. Chopra's lifelong work has reached people across the globe, but his efforts to achieve a more fair, sustainable and healthier society have all gone back to one critical practice— being present.
"Merely by being present, feminine energy transforms the atmosphere, touches the heart, and revives the soul," he said.
