Is mankind in the midst of a major paradigm shift in science? Do humans have the ability to influence the future evolution of the cosmos? Is there an ultimate reality?

The answers to these existential questions will meld into advice on health and well-being on Sunday, when Deepak Chopra, an endocrinologist described as “the poet prophet of alternative medicine” by the Time magazine, offers a special presentation at Queens College’s Colden Center in Flushing. The tickets start on $39 but you dear QNS readers, can get 10 percent discounts on tickets with a code listed below.

Chopra, who has written more than 80 books, preaches about the importance of meditation, inner calm, and proper dieting. He studied medicine in his native India before immigrating to the United States in 1970 and working at the New England Memorial Hospital. Since the 1980s, he has been incorporating principles from traditional Hindu spirituality, teleology (the belief in consciousness over matter), meditation and ideas about the mind-body relationship.

“The body is a perfect reflection of the choices you make over a lifetime. Knowledge is important, but adding more good advice isn’t the solution to healthy eating,” Chopra writes on his website. “The solution is to transform your awareness.”

On Sunday, Chopra will work with audience members to create practical ways to experience higher consciousness, transformation, and healing. He will facilitate what he calls a “roadmap to higher health” based on his investigations and the latest findings in mainstream and alternative medicine. He might also warn against the ill effects of materialism.

The event is scheduled to begin at 2 pm. Ticket prices run from $39 to $79, but 10 percent discounts are available by using the code “HEALTH” with an online purchase. Plus, attendees can buy tickets to a pre-show lunch (Lemon Pepper Oven Roasted Chicken or Basa Swai with Cilantro Mango and Raisin Salsa) in the Queens College President Lounge at noon.
