Tara Stiles introduces easy and fun ways to bring yoga, meditation, and healthy food into your life. As the designer and face of Reebok’s first yoga lifestyle line, author of Yoga Cures and Slim, Calm, Sexy Yoga, and the founder of Strala— the movement based system that ignites freedom, known for its laid-back and unpretentious vibe—Tara has long been a proponent of creating a tension-free healthy life by tapping into the unique needs of her clients. She teaches how to apply this inward-looking philosophy to your life.  According to Tara, “When people understand what they need for true wellbeing, they can make their own rules—rules that will help them become their best selves.” In her rulebook, “it’s no pain, much gain.” Tara stresses the importance of practicing with ease—leaving the discomfort and tension behind—because she believes that“what you practice is what you manifest.” Tara explains how to create your own rules and how to understand when something isn’t working anymore, so you can update your rules as circumstances change.


So often we wait for the climate and conditions in life to be perfect before we feel safe enough to step forward, claim our territory, and be our authentic selves. According to Sonia Choquette, what we don’t realize is that in order to create the ideal climate we are waiting for, we must be authentic first. And the only way to be so is to listen to and honor our intuition, our deepest knowing, our most powerful natural wisdom. Choosing to claim and follow our intuition is our strongest natural protector, our greatest psychic liberation, and the only way to be truly safe in life. Sonia is a spiritual teacher, six-sensory consultant, and the author of 19 books, including the New York Times best-seller The Answer is Simple. Hew newest book is entitled Walking Home – A Journey from Humbled to Healed. Sonia is the host of her own weekly radio show, Six Sensory Living.


Before he was a rising culinary star.  Before the James Beard nominations and the starred reviews. Before the Best New Chef titles and an Iron Chef win, Jesse Schenker worked in kitchens to fuel a ravenous habit. His obsession with drugs overtook his passion for cooking—until he hit rock bottom and realized: one would kill him and the other could save him. Growing up in wealthy suburban Florida, Jesse was introduced to the culinary world—and the world of hard drugs. Becoming a high-school dropout addicted to heroin and crack, he was alienated from his family and wanted by the cops. By 21, he had robbed, cheated, and lied to everyone in his life—and had overdosed, been shot at and nearly beaten to death. His eventual arrest motivated him to get clean.

Jesse learned to channel his obsessiveness and need to get ever “higher” into his career. But his growing success fueled his anxiety, leading to panic attacks and hypochondria. Jesse lays it all on the table for the first time, reflecting on his insatiable appetite for the extreme—which has led to his biggest triumphs and failures—and shares the shocking story of his turbulent life. Jesse is the author of the new book, All or Nothing, One Chef’s Appetite for the Extreme.

Which ones should you be engaging in that you are not, much to the detriment of achieving your greatest goals, your health, your happiness?

Grounded in brain science, psychology, and contemplative wisdom,  Dr Hanson explains how to build a better brain from the inside out, using the hidden power of seemingly ordinary experiences. By taking just a few extra seconds to stay with a positive experience – from the pleasure of a deep breath to a sense of calm, satisfaction, and love – you turn good moments into a great brain, full of strength, health, and happiness. That’s what it means to take in the good.  According to Dr Hanson, taking in the good resets the brain back to its natural resting state – its Responsive mode – which refuels and repairs the body, makes us feel peaceful, happy, and loved, and helps us act with confidence and compassion. This practice increases health and longevity, heals distress and dysfunction, deepens resilience and well-being, turbo charges personal development, improves relationships, and promotes a more humane and peaceful world.

Dr. Hanson is a neuropsychologist, a senior fellow of the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley, and a New York Times best-selling author. His books include Hardwiring Happiness, Buddha’s Brain, Just One Thing, and Mother Nurture. Founder of the Wellspring Institute for Neuroscience and Contemplatve Wisdom, he’s been an invited speaker at Oxford, Stanford, and Harvard.


On the outside, Brenda was living what appeared to be a happy life. On the inside was a different story. She continued to pretend all was well until one day she was diagnosed with cancer of the cervix. That diagnosis was not enough to wake her up. It took two more cancer diagnoses for her to understand that her disease was something more than what the doctors thought it was. Brenda spent time asking herself why she was sick. She turned down chemotherapy, even after being told she had about one year to live. Instead, she began healing from the inside out. Now, 24 years later, she is healthy, living her life with meaning and purpose. For Brenda, cancer was the gift that began a series of life changes. Brenda is the author of the new book, The Gift of Cancer – A Miraculous Journey to Healing. She is a radio host, inspirational speaker, and a member of the Advisory Board for the Emerald Heart Cancer Foundation.

She touches upon her dad’s original secrets, imparting her own experience with them and detailing how they have affected the way she approaches various situations in life.

Award-winning ABC News anchor Dan Harris has covered wars and presidential campaigns; he’s investigated human traffickers and been chased by wild elephants.  But by far his most challenging assignment involved something much more personal: taming the voice in his head. In his new book, 10% Happier, How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works—A True Story, Dan tells the story of an accidental odyssey, one that ranges from the inner sanctum of television news to the bizarre fringes of self-help to the vanguard of neuroscience. The book is part investigation and part immersive journalism: one man’s accidental quest to boost his happiness quotient without losing his professional drive.

Working his way from local television to the bright lights of network news, Dan had always believed the restless, relentless, impossible-to-satisfy voice in his head was one of his greatest assets. For a while, his strategy worked. Dan anchored national broadcasts; he covered wars. Then he made a series of poor decisions in his personal life that culminated in a televised panic attack in front of an audience of millions.  What happened next was completely unforeseen. Through a bizarre series of events involving a disgraced evangelical pastor, a mysterious self-help guru, and a fateful gift from his wife, Dan discovered something that helped him tame the voice in his head: meditation.

Dan is co-anchor of ABC News’ Nightline and also co-anchor for the weekend edition of Good Morning America. Before that, he was the anchor of the Sunday edition of World News. He regularly contributes stories on ABC for such shows as 20/20, World News with Diane Sawyer, and GMA. He has reported from all over the planet, covering wars in Afghanistan, Israel/Palestine, and Iraq; and produced investigative reports in Haiti, Cambodia, and the Congo. Dan has been at ABC News for 13 years, receiving Murrow and Emmy awards for his reporting.
