RICK HANSON, PHD
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.
THE GIFT OF CANCER
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.
DON’T DIE WITH THE MUSIC STILL IN YOU

Serena Dyer, one of those children, has contemplated these ideas throughout her life. “Don’t die with your music still in you” has been the most important principle for Serena: to her, it means that you don’t allow yourself to live any life other than the one you were born to live. Serena explains what it was like to grow up with spiritual parents. 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.

10 PERCENT HAPPIER
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.
YOURS, MINE AND OURS
They appeared to be the blissful Beardsleys, the happily blended family – eight of Helen North’s, 10 of Frank Beardsley’s, and two children from their union. A family so famous in America that Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda played the parents in a movie – Yours Mine and Ours – that was the fourth highest grossing movie of 1968 and the Golden Globe winner. But, according to Tom North, Helen’s second eldest son, they were anything but blissful.
In his book, True North – The Shocking Truth About “Yours, Mine and Ours” Tom reveals how he survived the ordeal of living with a horrifyingly abusive stepfather that drove him to depression and drugs and deprived him of his self-worth, and a mother who protected the image of the “perfect” family at all costs. Tom shares his account of how he rose to success against all odds, and explains how he found the peace that saved his life. He discusses the emotional toll that childhood trauma can have upon us, and how self-awareness and forgiveness can lead to healing.
Today, Tom is a writer and motivational speaker. He works to raise awareness about of domestic violence and child abuse.
A STORY OF DISASTER AND SURVIVAL
Twenty-five years ago, on July 19, 1989, the passengers of Flight 232 were having a normal flight when one of the pilots announced that they had lost an engine but would still be able to continue on to Chicago with the two remaining engines. Forty-four minutes later, the plane crashed onto a runway in Sioux City, Iowa, breaking into pieces and bursting into flames as it slid into an adjacent cornfield. Laurence Gonzales investigated the story and interviewed air traffic controllers, rescue workers, survivors and the pilots; he wrote the book Flight 232: A Story of Disaster and Survival. Laurence discusses the events of that flight and shares stories of heroism and triumph in the face of death, which demonstrate the power of the human spirit. Laurence is also the author of Surviving Survival and the bestseller Deep Survival: Who Lives, Who Dies, and Why.
Rebecca Musser was born into the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS Church), an extreme, isolated, polygamist sect that had splintered off from the Mormon faith. At age 19, she was forced into a polygamous marriage to the church’s prophet, a man more than four times her age. After her husband died and Warren Jeffs, the new prophet, tried to force her to remarry, Rebecca escaped.
Beginning a brand-new life in a strange world of gentiles, freedom, debit cards and French fries, Rebecca yearned to save her little sisters from becoming child brides. She forged a relationship with law enforcement and became instrumental in deciphering mountains of evidence of child molestation and bigamy found on the FLDS Yearning for Zion Ranch, as well as becoming a vital witness for the state of Texas in over 20 criminal convictions.
Rebecca is a national speaker, advocate for victims of human trafficking, and the author of The Witness Wore Red. She is the founder of ClaimRED, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing dignity, hope and healing to victims of human trafficking. She continues to speak out for the oppressed, to educate communities on the plight of millions in bondage, and to inspire individuals and organizations as to the power of one person to change the world.
DISCOVERING YOUR SOUL SIGNATURE
How do you cope when facing family conflict, faltering relationships, old trauma, life-threatening illness, obsessive thinking, and inevitable loss? If you’re like most people, chances are you react with fear and confusion, falling back on timeworn strategies: anger, self-judgment, striving and addictive behaviors. Though these old, conditioned attempts to control our life may offer a quick fix, they ultimately leave us feeling isolated, unsatisfied, sad, fearful, and confused.
According to Panache Desai, there is another way. Panache — a contemporary thought leader who has appeared on Super Soul Sunday with Oprah Winfrey — calls on us to harness the power of our authentic selves. It is through acceptance of ourselves and recognition of our unique soul signature, he says, that we can surmount life’s challenges and live a life of meaning. Panache provides a spiritual roadmap to confront negative emotions and reactions, and most importantly, a way to unlock our sense of self-worth, well-being, and purpose: our unique soul signature.
Panache was featured on OWN’s Soul 2 Soul: Asking Life’s Big Questions. A highly sought-after speaker, Desai is on the faculty of the Omega Institute and the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. He has taught at the Celebrate Your Life and Healing with the Masters series and has addressed the United Nations Enlightenment Society. He was a speaker at The Third Metric Conferences hosted by Arianna Huffington and Mika Brzezinski.

THE TURNING POINT
There’s a time when every crisis can become transformation; when simply surviving can become joyous thriving. In our lives that time is the turning point. We live in a time of extremes.
