Located in the heart of ABC Carpet & Home, Deepak HomeBase is a salon, theatre, and interactive studio created to facilitate conversation on both a local and global scale on the mezz level of ABC. A concept co-created by Deepak Chopra and Paulette Cole, ABC Home CEO, Deepak HomeBase embodies ABC’s mission to create a living theater museum, one that values learning, healing, exploration, and sanctuary.
As such, Deepak HomeBase is a global classroom of sorts; a physical meeting point between key influencers from a variety of concentrations (innovation, art, science, and wellness) and Deepak Chopra, its esteemed host. Deepak’s curiosity, compassion, and ability to render the esoteric accessible have never been more relevant than in these uncertain times, making him particularly to suited ask the important questions.
The spark begins in New York City and extends beyond…
By disseminating these conversations through a larger web of technology (such as livestream), Deepak HomeBase aims to use its international potential to affect significant change and create a community that desires to be educated, challenged, inspired.
Beginning September 12th 2011, Deepak HomeBase will launch a brand new conversation series, entitled Love In Action: illuminating creative forces who harness their influence as leading change agents for a better world.
Deepak Chopra commented, “It has been said that love without action is meaningless and that action without love is irrelevant. But when you have the combination of love and action, then magic happens; miracles occur. Love In Action will identify supercelebrities and superhereos who are engaged in helping the world in one way or another, and who are also interested in both personal and social transformation.”
The lineup, below:
- September 12, 6:30 PM // Russell Simmons featuring Erica Ford – Russell Simmons, CEO Rush Communications and Erica Ford, founder/CEO of LIFE Camp will discuss Life Camp, Inc. which aims to develop teens and young adults into peer leaders by providing positive alternatives to violence.

“Our goal is to inspire people to take their own actions with love, so that we all move towards a critical mass of at least 100 million people who are engaged in helping create a more peaceful, just, sustainable, healthy, and happy world,” Deepak remarked.
