"Additional projects forthcoming from the development deal include a short-form memoir about Chopra's quest for inner freedom, as well as a poetry project featuring notable guests and friends of Chopra," reveals the audio storytelling platform."Over the course of my life, I've had the privilege of learning from brilliant friends and inspiring individuals, while discovering how to connect with my deeper self," says Deepak Chopra. "I believe that there is immense power behind the spoken word. Emotions are tethered to the human voice. This is why I chose to share my insights and experiences through the audio medium, and develop passion projects with Audible. Through storytelling, shared dialogue and guided meditations delivered in my own voice and the voices of others, I hope to create a deeply intimate, sensory listening experience for audiences -- as if we are all in the room together, learning together and reflecting together," he adds.Chopra is the author of 90 widely-translated books, including numerous New York Times bestsellers. For the last 30 years, he has been at the forefront of the meditation revolution and his 91st book, 'Total Meditation' (Harmony Books) helps to achieve new dimensions of stress-free living and joyful living. Zola Mashariki, SVP, Head of Audible Studios at Audible notes: "We're seeing the appetite for wellness and meditation content grow at a rapid pace, with audiences continuing to turn to Audible for unique, new ways to ground themselves and work on their overall state of well-being. There is no one better suited to help guide listeners on their personal development journey than Deepak."(Siddhi Jain can be contacted at [email protected])--IANS<br>sj/tb/
