February 20th event to highlight new book 


SAN DIEGO: The University of San Diego’s College of Arts and Sciences and Warwick’s Books proudly present New York Times bestselling author Deepak Chopra as he shares new insights from his latest work You Are the Universe, co-authored by leading physicist Menas Kafatos, PhD. As part of the Humanities Center Illume Speaker Series, Chopra will explore some of the most important and baffling questions about our place in the world. 


“The shift into a new paradigm is happening,” the authors write. “The answers offered in this book are not our invention or eccentric flights of fancy. All of us live in a participatory universe. Once you decide that you want to participate fully with mind, body, and soul, the paradigm shift becomes personal. The reality you inhabit will be yours either to embrace or to change.” What these two great minds offer is a bold, new understanding of who we are and how we can transform the world for the better while reaching our greatest potential.



Monday, February 20 at 7 p.m.
Shiley Theatre, Camino Hall
Ticket options: $28.08 for one admission and one copy of You Are the Universe or $38.08 for two admissions and one copy of You Are the Universe
