Previously Aired On: Tuesday, June 17, 2008 – Listen to the Show!
Born into a family of poetically brilliant teachers, Max Simon has been surrounded by consciousness, spirituality, and mind-body medicine his entire life. Son of David Simon M.D., best selling author and co-founder of the world-renowned Chopra Center for Wellbeing, and Julia Simon, an accredited Transcendental Meditation teacher and Vedic Astrologer, Max received his first meditation technique at the age of 4. Learning yoga before he knew about sports and Ayurveda before he knew about McDonalds, the seeds of awareness were planted in Max at an early age.
At the age of 22, Max became the youngest meditation and yoga teacher in Chopra Center history. As a living example of someone who could integrate ancient wisdom into modern times, Max began to tour the country with Deepak Chopra M.D. and his father teaching meditation and yoga to thousands of people at the Chopra Center’s prestigious workshops and events.
Max’s passion for teaching and appreciation of silence gave rise to a movement that would forever change the way the world looked at meditation. Known as The selfcentered Tour, he designed this program to bring a fresh new look and feel to meditation and the people who do it. Engaging, experiential, and wildly entertaining, Max’s programs equip people with the tools and techniques to step away from the endless mind-chatter, disconnect from the buzz, and settle into a world of authentic inner-calm
Max’s vision is to inspire one million people to join him in spending time each day connecting to their silent inner-self.
