Rewiring Your Brain: Michael Weisend
Not Knowing and the Space It Creates to Discover: Gerard Senehi
As a mentalist, Gerard confounds, captivates, and uplifts audiences worldwide with his seemingly impossible feats. His work has earned the admiration of world leaders, celebrities and Fortune 500 CEOs, as well as the national and international media.
Honored by his peers in 2008 with the Psychic Entertainers’ Association’s highest award, the Dunninger Memorial Award, he is regarded as one of the world’s best mentalists. The secret to his success lies in keeping people guessing, suspending normal conceptions of reality, as he walks an untraceable line between sophisticated illusion and paranormal powers. The captivating results were once described by New York Magazine as “tiny miracles . . . challenging both the credulity of believers and the unsmiling vehemence of skeptics.”
The shocking truth about your health: Lissa Rankin
Lissa Rankin, MD is an OB/GYN physician, author, keynote speaker, consultant to health care visionaries, professional artist, and founder of the women’s health and wellness community OwningPink.com. Discouraged by the broken, patriarchal health care system, she left her medical practice in 2007 only to realize that you can quit your job, but you can’t quit your calling. This epiphany launched her on a journey of discovery that led her to become a leader in the field of mind/body medicine, which she blogs about at OwningPink.com and is writing about in her third book Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof You Can Heal Yourself (Hay House, 2013).
She teaches both patients and health care professionals how to make the body ripe for miracles by healing the mind and being healthy in all aspects of life, not just by promoting healthy behaviors like good nutrition, exercise, and adequate sleep, but by encouraging health and authenticity in relationships, work, creative expression, spirituality, sexuality, finances, and living environment. She is leading a revolution to feminize how health care is received and delivered by encouraging collaboration, fostering self-healing, reconnecting health care and spirituality, empowering patients to tap into the mind’s power to heal the body, and encouraging women not to settle for being merely well, but to strive for living vital, joyful, authentic lives full of “mojo.”
When not spreading the word, she chills out, paints, does yoga, and hikes in Marin County, CA with her husband and daughter.
