“We are travelers on a journey to the heart of life. We all find, in our own time and our own way, a path that leads us from constriction to expansion, from limitation to infinite possibility, from fear to love, and from separation to unity.”
Sheila Patel, M.D.
Dr. Sheila Patel is the Chief Medical Officer for Chopra Global and a board-certified family physician. For more than a decade, she practiced full-spectrum family medicine, from prenatal care and deliveries, to ER coverage, and inpatient and outpatient primary care for all ages. In addition to her role at Chopra Global, she also maintains an outpatient family medicine practice in Southern California where she integrates holistic healing practices into conventional medicine.
Dr. Patel joined the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, California in 2010 and helped manage the Perfect Health holistic lifestyle program, as well as the Mind-Body Medical Group, where she provided integrative, Ayurvedic medical consultations. She has spoken at Chopra Global events as well as at other integrative medical conferences, and is a lead educator for the Chopra certification programs. She is a certified yoga and meditation instructor, as well as an Ayurvedic consultant. She maintains a voluntary clinical position at the University of San Diego School of Medicine in the Department of Family Medicine and Public Health where she has mentored medical students interested in primary care and integrative medicine.
Dr Patel is also on the Clinical Research Team for the Chopra Foundation, with a commitment to bringing scientific validation to mind-body practices, and is the co-author of multiple publications on the subjects of meditation, Ayurveda, and whole-systems healing. She enjoys the opportunity to bring light to the mechanisms of action of mind-body practices and sharing this knowledge with others. Dr. Patel believes the best way to achieve wellness is to integrate all of the knowledge available to us, from modern conventional medicine as well as from traditional healing systems, to create individualized treatment plans. Her hope is that by confirming the benefits of mind-body practices more people will gain access to these life-enhancing techniques and learn how to implement them into their lives for optimal well-being.

My name is Lois Wax, a Primordial Sound Meditation Teacher, Psychotherapy counselor, and dental hygienist. I address the spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being of my clients. My background has been in health with my dental hygiene practice.
My counseling deals with the emotional and spiritual aspects of our lives. My emphasis is growth through an interdisciplinary approach. I started meditating 35 years ago with the Transcendental Meditation Program with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. I practiced for 10 years and lost the momentum. I was still looking for a guiding light and then found the teachings of Dr. Deepak Chopra.
Dr. Chopra’s teachings became my beacon to learn and grow in Primordial Sound Meditation. Eight years ago, I completed the Wagner counseling program at the American Jewish University. Since then, I have been working with the Senior Outreach Program at Providence Hospital in Los Angeles. I have used the knowledge for growth with meditation and life coaching with my clients.
In June of 2020, I completed the Primordial Sound Meditation Enrichment and Certification Program that I incorporate with my Life Coach counseling. I hope to be of help to enrich your life with a new perspective on the immense possibilities for growth and discovery. The three-pronged approach of physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being has been my journey to health, and lend my hand and experience as your guide.

Michelle initially founded Brilliant Muse to have more balance in her life and help fellow moms get flexible and remote work from the Bay Area tech giants she still worked with.
