Deepak Chopra with Adam Plack – The Soul of Healing Meditations
Deepak Chopra teams with Australian new age musician Adam Plack on The Soul of Healing Meditations: A Simple Approach to Getting Younger, which features eight guided meditations set to gentle, world music-inspired instrumentals. The appropriately airy synth washes of “Breathing Meditation” lead into the rhythmic, tabla-driven “Heart Meditation” and soothing atmospheres of “Body Awareness.”
Chopra alternates quieter breathing meditations with more mentally challenging, biorhythmic exercises for a completely relaxing and refreshing experience. “Envoking the Gods of Healing” and “Inviting the Spirit of Healing” feature particularly lovely, Indian-influenced instrumentals with hypnotic tablas and flutes; the album becomes increasingly world music-based until it culminates with “Ode of Solomon,” which provides a sensual, reflective finale. With its extensive liner notes, which outline Chopra’s philosophies about the gods and goddesses of healing, The Soul of Healing Meditation is a good way for meditation novices to explore this relaxing art.
Featuring the soothing narration of Deepak Chopra over the trancelike music of Adam Plack, The Soul of Healing Meditations serves as an introduction to meditation for neophytes and as a more advanced tool to help overcome a physical ailment and/or emotional toxicity. That may make it sound like a digital elixir, but as Chopra says in his liner notes: “We like to tell our patients (at the Chopra Center for Well Being) that the body is the best pharmacy in the world and is capable of making wonder drugs.” His message here is that one can naturally prevail over serious life challenges by becoming more attuned to one’s body–by relaxing and filtering out the external world, focusing on and influencing internal sensations and biorhythms, and banishing negative thoughts and focusing on the positive aspects of life.
This CD is not meant as a cure-all for physical or emotional ills. Rather, it’s a supplemental experience to other treatments or programs, and it shows how enlightening and empowering meditation can be when practiced properly. Its actual effects will depend upon the receptiveness of the listener. Plack’s accompanying soundtrack ranges from delicate ambient tones to more active Indian music, appropriately serving the mood of each of the album’s eight tracks. –Bryan Reesman
