Deepak Chopra has been at the forefront of the self-care movement since the ’90s. He was touting the benefits of meditation way before apps like Calm and Headspace became popular. A New York Times best-selling author, Dr. Chopra has written over 90 books, including The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, Total Meditation, and Metahuman. He also founded an eponymous integrative health foundation called Chopra.
Focusing on physical, mental, and spiritual health, Chopra blends the holistic healing practice of Ayurveda with modern well-being practices. In addition to self-care content, like 21-Day Meditations, Chopra offers online masterclasses and certification programs — and now, its in-person well-being retreats are returning!
Centered around mindfulness and meditation, Chopra retreats invite you to “leave your computer at home. Turn your phone off—not on silent, actually off.” Any amount of time without a computer or cell phone sounds heavenly to us! Whether you’re “well-being curious” or a practiced yogi, Chopra’s integrative health experts can help you discover what you really want, transform your habits, and create a self-care routine.
Retreats offer the opportunity to share your body/mind/spirit experience and connect with like-minded individuals who are also into personal healing. Plus, they just so happen to take place at luxurious resorts in gorgeous locales across North America. They don’t just nourish your soul — chef-driven cuisine is prepared for guests daily with fresh, local ingredients. Dr. Chopra speaks at each retreat, along with meditation, yoga, and wellness experts.
“Wellness begins when we sleep deeply, eat food that nourishes, move our bodies, practice meditation, love ourselves and those around us, live with nature, and truly understand how to create our collective reality,” said Mallika Chopra, CEO of Chopra Global.

1. Well Within
Rancho Palos Verde, California

Dr. Chopra knows how to make a comeback — kicking off his return to in-person retreats with a chat with mental health advocate Jewel, followed by a performance by the Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter. Of course, this carefree paradise comes at a price. This retreat starts at $2,935 and includes a two-night stay at the luxurious resort, Ayurvedic-inspired meals, daily meditation, yoga, and mindful movement classes, engaging talks by Dr. Chopra and renowned thought leaders, and more.
The nearly sold-out Well Within retreat takes place at the five-star Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verde, California at the end of this month. Poised above the Pacific on the beautiful Palos Verdes Peninsula, California’s Mediterranean-inspired Terranea Resort offers breathtaking views of the Los Angeles coastline.
