Dinner with Deepak Chopra

Most Washingtonians and journos use Twitter to stay connected or for a little self-promotion. Deepak Chopra is also an avid Twitter-er, but much different than most of the tweets FBDC follows.

The author and mind-body medicine guru tweets his daily intentions and his hundreds of thousands of followers benefit from messages like this morning’s “to transform the world transform yourself.”

At a dinner at Teatro Goldoni last night, hosted by Janet Donovan and Christine Warnke, FBDC asked Chopra if there’s anyone in DC he’s following on Twitter– for now, just President Obama.

Chopra, accompanied by his wife Rita, signed copies of his book “Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul: How To Create a New You.”

Guests included: Sally Quinn and Ben Bradlee, WaPo‘s Jonathan Capehart, Washington Life‘s Vicki Bagley, Democratic strategist Karen Finney, Kevin Chaffee, The Georgetowner‘s Beth Solomon, Pamela’s Punch’s Pamela Sorensen, Politico‘s Kiki Ryan, TWT‘s Stephanie Green and Liz Glover, US News and World Report‘s Washington Whispers’ Jessica Rettig, the Examiner‘s Nikki Schwab and the National Endowment of the Arts’ Jamie Bennett.
