Is it possible to venture beyond daily living and experience heightened states of awareness? In his latest book, Deepak Chopra says that higher consciousness is available here and now.

Metahuman helps us harvest peak experiences so we can see our truth and mold the universe’s chaos into a form that brings light to the world.”—Dr. Mehmet Oz, Attending Physician, New York–Presbyterian, Columbia University 

New York Times bestselling author Deepak Chopra unlocks the secrets to moving beyond our present limitations to access a field of infinite possibilities. How does one do this? By becoming metahuman.

To be metahuman, however, isn’t science fiction and is certainly not about being a superhero. To be metahuman means to move past the limitation constructed by the mind and enter a new state of awareness where we have deliberate and concrete access to peak experiences that can transform people’s lives from the inside out.

Humans do this naturally—to a point. For centuries the great artists, scientists, writers, and many so-called ordinary people have gone beyond the everyday physical world. But if we could channel these often bewildering experiences, what would happen? Chopra argues we would wake up to experiences that would blow open your body, mind, and soul.

Metahuman invites the reader to walk the path here and now. Waking up, we learn, isn’t just about mindfulness or meditation. Waking up, to become metahuman, is to expand our consciousness in all that we think, say, and do. 

By going beyond, we liberate ourselves from old conditioning and all the mental constructs that underlie anxiety, tension, and ego-driven demands. Waking up allows life to make sense as never before. To make this as practical as possible, Chopra ends the book with a 31-day guide to becoming metahuman. Once you wake up, he writes, life becomes transformed, because pure consciousness—which is the field of all possibilities—dawns in your life. Only then does your infinite potential become your personal reality.

Editorial Reviews

“Metahuman is a wonderful explanation—and exploration—of the very highest and ultimate potentials that human beings possess, known around the world as enlightenment, awakening, the great liberation. What is not generally known is the secret revealed at the very heart of the great wisdom traditions—namely, that you already possess this ultimate potential; it is fully and totally present in you, right here and right now. All you have to do is recognize this ever‑present reality. If you would like to know exactly how to do this, Metahuman is a terrific place to begin!”—Ken Wilber, author of The Integral Vision and The Religion of Tomorrow“We might suppose that the vastness of space-time, with its myriad stars and planets, comprises the preexisting stage for a ceaseless drama of life in which we are bit players. In Metahuman, Deepak Chopra persuasively invites us to turn this supposition on its head. We are the authors of space-time; we can wake up to our impressive stagecraft and embrace our true role.”—Donald Hoffman, Professor of Cognitive Sciences, University of California, Irvine; author of The Case Against Reality“In Metahuman, Deepak exposes us to a new and exciting reality where we are all infinitely free to create the lives we yearn for. There is no better guide to lead us to this phenomenal way of being.”—Bruce Vaughn, CEO, Dreamscape Immersive; former Chief Creative Executive, Walt Disney Imagineering“Metahuman is a brilliant vision of human potential and how we can move beyond the limitations, concepts, and stories created by the mind. If we wake up and drop our usual habits of considering ourselves as finite, localized beings, the potential exists in each one of us to be one with our very true nature, or quoting Huxley, to be one with the ‘Mind at Large.’”—Dr. Menas C. Kafatos, New York Times bestselling author and Fletcher Jones Endowed Professor of Computational Physics, Chapman University“Deepak Chopra’s Metahuman inspires a new spiritual perspective on our life in the Universe. By expanding our view, we can fulfill our hidden potential to become conscious of our infinite scope. Chopra’s journey echoes the sense of awe that astronomers experience when observing outer space through telescopes. His book provides a similar mind-expanding view into our inner space.”—Avi Loeb, Chair of Department of Astronomy, Harvard University“For more than thirty years, Deepak Chopra has been educating us on the extraordinary potential of the human being, focusing initially on our capacity for exceptional physical and mental health, and then for spiritual wellbeing. Metahuman takes us beyond health and well-being—and all such concepts of the mind—to a life based on our very own nature and that of the universe: existence itself.”—Paul J. Mills, PhD, Professor and Chief of Family Medicine and Public Health, Clinical and Translational Research Institute; Director, Center of Excellence for Research and Training in Integrative Health, University of California, San Diego“Metahuman is a powerful wake-up call! Brilliantly merging scientific and holistic insights, Deepak Chopra allows us to go beyond illusory mental constructs to witness reality without limits. Only then can we reach our full potential!”—Dr. Lars Buttler, cofounder and CEO of the Artificial Intelligence Foundation“At a time when ‘brain hacking’ is in vogue to transcend widespread human dilemmas, Dr. Deepak Chopra presents a more humane vision grounded in the wisdom traditions. His writing here reveals a fresh way of approaching special states of consciousness and gives us new insights into ancient ideas in the contemplative traditions. Highly recommended.”—Bernard J.  Baars, PhD, former Senior Fellow in Theoretical Neurobiology, the Neurosciences Institute, San Diego, California“Deepak Chopra’s wonderful book Metahuman points the way for all of us to realize our full potential by showing us how to shed the constraints that hold us back from a life filled with love and self-worth. I applaud how he roots his recommendations in the latest research. As always, Dr. Chopra has written a book filled with insight, an indispensable aid for anyone striving to have a happy and fulfilled existence.”—Leonard Mlodinow, bestselling author of Elastic: Unlocking Your Brain’s Ability to Embrace Change“Reading Metahuman is not just about waking up, it is to wake up. It is the GPS for realizing your full potential. You need it, I need it, and we all need it if we are to live on this planet without destroying it and ourselves. The key is in us—it is us. And Deepak tells us how to reach it.”—Ervin Laszlo, author of Science and the Akashic Field and Reconnecting with the Source“Deepak and I have had our differences on a few scientific issues, but the one thing that I’ve always admired about him is how he applies the methods and findings of science toward social progress, especially to help people improve their lives. We all want to lead happy and meaningful lives, but how? Metahuman is Deepak’s answer to this deepest of all personal questions, from which I learned something new in every chapter toward this important end. You will be enlightened by the research and wisdom he brings together.”—Michael Shermer, publisher of Skeptic magazine; Presidential Fellow, Chapman University; author of Heavens on Earth“In public health, we look for ways to make the healthy choice the easy choice. Metahuman does this by mapping a direct path to a state of focused awareness and self-regulation mechanisms, based on growing evidence from mindfulness research at Brown. This has the power to help those suffering from stress to lower their blood pressure as well as reduce their risk for anxiety, depression—even loneliness.”—Bess H. Marcus, PhD, Dean, Brown University School of Public Health“Drawing upon examples ranging from medical science to parable, Chopra illustrates how, like virtual reality technologies, the human mind paints a layer of imagination atop of the physical world. Fortunately, Chopra also shares a way beyond this dilemma: that same human capacity to imagine also allows us the mindfulness to realize resilience, gratitude, and compassion.”—D. Fox Harrell, PhD, Professor of Digital Media and Artificial Intelligence, MIT; Director of the MIT Center for Advanced Virtuality
