|Mallika Chopra at the Ci6 Author Reception yesterday evening|
"I love what all of you do, because you bring magic and wonder to families and kids, and it's so important. It fuels their imagination and gives them the tools for their lives. I'm humbled and grateful to be here."
--Mallika Chopra, author of Living with Intent and Just Breathe: Meditation, Mindfulness, Movement and More, during her keynote address on the first day of Children's Institute 6 in New Orleans, La. She led booksellers in a short guided meditation, discussed growing up as the daughter of Deepak Chopra and stressed that "it's the everyday people who do extraordinary things." She encouraged audience members, whatever it is they do, to "do it with a sense of love, do it with a sense of gratitude, and do it with a sense of purpose."
