Project Wellbeing (formerly Aspen City of Wellbeing) was born out of a visit to Aspen by Dr. Deepak Chopra in January 2014. Deepak was presenting a lecture on Self-Directed Biological Transformation at the Aspen Institute and his appearance was sponsored byProject Wellbeing Founder, Gina Murdock, and her husband Jerry. While touring the city of Aspen with Gina, Deepak remarked that due to its natural beauty, intellectual capital and financial abundance that Aspen could and should be a "city of wellbeing".
