David Kessler
Finding Meaning

Many are familiar with the five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. Now, according to David Kessler, there is a sixth stage. David is an expert on healing and loss, and author of several books including On Grief and Grieving, which he co-authored with Elisabeth Kubler-Ross. In his new book, Finding Meaning: The Sixth Stage of Grief, he journeys beyond the classic five stages to discover a sixth stage, meaning. David argues that it’s finding meaning that can transform grief into a more peaceful and hopeful experience. David’s first book, The Needs of the Dying is a #1 best-selling hospice book that received praise from Mother Teresa. David’s work has been featured on CNN, NBC, Fox, PBS, and Dr Oz. He is a contributing writer for Oprah.com, Dr. Oz’s Sharecare.com, and Anderson Cooper 360.

Corporations today are viewed as having a focus on profits over people and the environment. But according to Michael Gelb, this approach to capitalism is no longer viable. He believes that we are at a point where businesses must take the lead in being a healing force, and that this approach may make them more profitable because the profits are rooted in human flourishing. Michael is an authority on the application of genius thinking to personal and organizational development. He helps organizations around the world develop more creative, innovative, and conscious cultures. He is the co-author of the new book, The healing Organization: Awakening the Conscience of Business to Help Save the World.

The Power of Agency

He has held an advanced fellowship during a three-year academic appointment at Harvard Medical School, and is the co-author of the book, The Power of Agency: The 7 Principles to Conquer Obstacles, Make Effective Decisions, and Create a Life on Your Own Terms.

Kenneth Pelletier, MD
Change Your Genes

Biology is no longer destiny. Our DNA doesn’t determine our health as once believed. According to the new science of epigenetics, the majority of our genes are fluid and dynamic—and their expression is shaped by what we think and what we do. Dr. Kenneth Pelletier discusses how we can influence our genes by the choices we make every day. Dr. Pelletier is a world-renowned pioneer in integrative medicine, a clinical professor of Medicine at UCSF School of medicine, and former clinical professor of medicine at the Stanford School of Medicine. He is a peer reviewer for several medical journals and appeared on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and the BBC to discuss his research. Dr. Pelletier has authored numerous books including, Change Your Genes, Change Your Life.
