Mark Nepo – Heartwork: Being A Spirit in the World
In his keynote, Mark will explore the heartwork required to inhabit our lives by engaging our ongoing relationships to self, other, work, community and Source. The integrity of our heartwork depends on integrating who we are with what we do. Regardless of the service we’re called to, the central questions have always been: How will we inhabit our time on Earth? How can we live fully in the face of death? And how can we love fully in the face of life? This of course leads to other questions: How will we know and be known? How do we hold each other as we tumble along in the story of our lives? How will we care for each other in the face of crisis?
“I have come to believe that we can only discover the capacity and meaning of our time on Earth in the context of our struggles, in how we face and inhabit the challenges life presents to us. In this, living together is an applied art of Spirit, one that we can enliven together.”
Michael is a renowned storyteller, author, and scholar of mythology, anthropology, and psychology. His hypnotic and fiery storytelling, street savvy perceptiveness, and spellbinding interpretations of ancient myths are highly relevant to current culture. He is the author of many books including Fate and Destiny: The Two Agreements of The Soul, and The World Behind the World. Meade is founder of Mosaic Multicultural Foundation, a Seattle-based nonprofit dedicated to education and cultural healing. And he has made it a central tenant of his long and distinguished career to contribute his learning and his gifts to people on the fringes – youth at risk, veterans, people in prisons and aging members of our population.
Michael Meade – Finding Genius In Your Life
In this program, Michael Meade, one of the most captivating and gifted story tellers of our time, explores some of the ways each of us can overcome the modern world-view that would have us thinking that each person is an accidental occurrence in an accidental universe, rather than that each person enters the world with unique gifts and a life purpose waiting to be discovered. Weaving his anthropological magic he introduces us to the world of Fate and Destiny, talks about the critical role elders have played in every successful society in history and how current practices and beliefs – exercised both by those of us who are aging as well as by society as a whole – are contributing to the marginalization of our elders. He also talks candidly about the path that he has followed and using myth and stories shows us how genius – the genius we all have – can awaken our imagination and inspirations and allow us to expand rather than diminished at every stage of our lives and particularly as we age. www.moasicvoices.com
Dannion and Kathryn are bestselling authors, lecturers and spiritual teachers who have both survived near-death experiences and returned to share their experiences with us.

In 2008, Harper Harper One, San Francisco, published Secrets of the Light. In it Dannion and Kathryn explain what they call The Four-Fold Path, to spiritual enlightenment, along with an explanation of how to live this life in a way that will benefit people in the afterlife. Currently, they are working on their next co-authored book, Ten Things to Know Before You Go.
This devoted couple also works ceaselessly to champion of virtues of spiritual values in daily life. Together they guide The Twilight Brigade, their non-profit organization dedicated to training volunteers to be at the bedside of our American veteran’s in transition, from the world to the next. www.dannion.com
Dannion and Kathryn Brinkley – Preparing for the Future of Consciousness
At this point and place in human history, Dannion and Kathryn believe we are all being called to reassess, and possibly recreate, our personal mission statements in life – particularly those of us who are in the second half of life and those in younger generations who want to better prepare for the future. We have arrived at a time when all things have evolved to a point of critical mass. Through our conscious thoughts, and intentions as well as our physical actions, we are preparing for a quantum leap in consciousness. The coming era is unprecedented in every possible way. Therefore, the execution of our power and might, as spiritual beings experiencing a physical incarnation, has never been more crucial.
In preparation, for the next decade, we must find our spiritual clarity. The “new normal” will be a heightened consciousness that requires we align our daily activities with the cosmic vibration and flow, redefine our values and priorities, more fully understand the nature of aging and transitioning between this life and what lies beyond. This program is not to be missed by anyone who values the quality of life in the coming years.

After a stint in academia, Carol Flake Chapman turned to journalism, working as writer and editor for a number of leading newspapers and magazines. She was a founding editor of Vanity Fair and a correspondent for The New Yorker and U.S. News & World Report. She has written for Harper’s, the Washington Post the New York Times, the Boston Globe, Vogue, Conde Nast Traveler, The Nation, Texas Monthly, and The New Republic. She has covered subjects from religion, culture, and politics to travel and the outdoors. Each of her books has been regarded as a definitive work on its subject — provocative and ahead of its time. Her new book, Written in Water: A Memoir of Love, Death, and Mystery, is a story of the sorrow and transcendence that come with the pursuit of healing. After losing her beloved husband in a kayaking accident on a remote Guatemalan river, she undertakes an improvised pilgrimage around the world that becomes a journey of discovery. Along the way, she finds deep connections to nature and to dimensions of reality that lie beneath the surface of everyday life. As one reviewer put it, she “opens portals of life’s mysteries that many of us never reach.
Carol Flake Chapman – Written in Water: Death, Grief, and the Wisdom of Healing in Nature
For anyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one and particularly elders who are seeking new ways of healing, this program with Carol Flake Chapman, the author of the new book Written in Water: A Memoir of Love, Death and Mystery, will be essential. As a former academic and a veteran journalist schooled in skepticism, Dr. Chapman shares her confrontation with the parts of herself that were resistant to the healing qualities in the Sacred Web of Nature and the discoveries she made about possibilities for transcending resistance and opening to grace. She talks about finding “necessary angels” along her pilgrimage of healing, and talks about what she calls the process of Slow Grief to heal her wounded heart. Do synchronicities join hands with grief to form a healing pattern? Are we being called to a larger perspective through these challenging moments? Dr. Chapman answers a resounding “Yes!”
Dr. Norm Shealy is one of the world’s leading experts in pain & depression management. He was the first physician to specialize in the resolution of chronic pain.

RANDY HAYES – Pathway to Elderhood through Biospheric Literacy
Randy Hayes, founder of Rain Forest Action Network and more recently Foundation Earth, describes his pathway to a deep caring for the Earth through his study under the Navajo elders, one of which was 102, in the Four Corners area of the Southwest.

Michael J Gelb – Think Like Leonardo: Improve as You Age!
What if you could call on history’s greatest genius, Leonardo da Vinci, to be your personal mentor in improving mind and body as you age? Anatomist, architect, botanist, city planner, engineer, inventor, geographer, geologist, musician, painter and philosopher, Leonardo da Vinci (1452 – 1519) helped bring the Western world out of the Middle Ages and into the Renaissance. Now his approach to optimizing human potential is more relevant than ever. This dynamic, highly-interactive program brings da Vinci’s genius to life through fascinating biographical and historical information, setting the stage for an introduction to seven principles for thinking “a la Leonardo.” You will then be guided to apply the principles to experience a personal Renaissance now!

The Dean of the Wisdom School of Graduate Study of Ubiquity University and one of the co-hosts of this Global Elder-Corps Summit, brings an integral approach to his work in education. He weds his Native American background and traditional training in shamanic circles with his 30-year practice of psychotherapy. Dr. Taegel is the author of 8 books, including the recent The Mother Tongue: Intimacy in the Eco-fields, which brings together ancient wisdom and 21st century science. He was among the first researchers to connect clinical and cultural disturbance with human estrangement from the sacred core of Nature. He balances his academic interest in evolution and trauma with the spiritual practice of rain water collection, solar and wind energy, and environmental restoration. Will Taegel and Judith Yost are co-founders of an ongoing eco-spiritual, integral practice community in the Texas Hill Country called the Earthtribe.
Will Taegel – The Mother Tongue: The Language of Wise Elders
As we are initiated into being elders and as we face the task of being creative instead of stagnant, Nature provides us with a lost language. It is the language of the ancients and of the newer sciences, but, more important, it is the language of our childhood. This conversation with Will Taegel takes us on a wild and wonderful journey to discovering what Carl Jung called “the natural human within.” As we recover this wild heart, we tap into the possibilities that lie waiting for us. Most importantly, as we learn to speak this mother tongue we unveil the potential of a legacy to offer our children and grandchildren to seven generations in the future. www.earthtribe.org
Dr. Thomas Lodi, MD has always been something of a brilliant enigma within the oncology community. His take on integrative, alternative and nutritional solutions to treating cancer has been viewed as radical. The rather direct stance he takes regarding empowering his patient to understand their body’s ability to heal using his program leaves some, if not many estranged. Despite all of this, his treatments have revolutionized the integrative side of the oncology industry worldwide and led many patients with cancer to the root of real healing and health restoration.
Nine years ago, Dr. Lodi founded his practice at An Oasis of Healing in Mesa, Arizona. At the time, few if any other centers provided a true mix of conventional and alternative medicine to help patients actually heal from their cancer. Add to the mix an organic whole foods diet, whole body cleansing, and spiritual healing, Dr. Thomas Lodi pioneered what has now become the definitive route for those unsatisfied with the modern cancer treatment system.

Born in Sri Lanka with a rare energy and sensitivity, Tilak has displayed an incredible ability to transform people’s lives and bring them into a higher state of wakefulness through his presence and connection to the flow. A team of doctors visited Tilak in Sri Lanka, in the early 1970s, and soon after asked him to come to the United States. A few years later, in the mid 70s, Dr. Stan Grof invited him to the Esalen Institute to share his presence and abilities in healing and transformation. Tilak’s unique art of creating emotional ventilation and his wild wisdom has touched the hearts of thousands of people in the last 50 years. Tilak’s distinct ways of “creating openings” and unleashing energy continues to affect many through healing and spontaneous fascination.
Tilak’s work is not for everyone; it is for those that are ready to embark on an adventure. Working with Tilak is like emotional scuba diving that unleashes your true potential and fascination for life that has been lying dormant due to fear and doubt. Life is a celebration for your arrival here on the Planet Earth. Life loves you and if you love life unconditionally, having no interference, it will bring you a pleasant surprise. Meet Tilak and say yes to Life!
Tilak – Secrets of the Flow (The Art of Sensing and Signaling)
Life is a celebration. The pleasure of living and the joy of realization is a part of our inheritance. But usually, you are not able to sense it, feel it or connect to it, because you are distracted by mind chatter, intention and unworthiness. These three distractions keep you from recognizing that you are in a living space. When you find yourself in a living space, you respond to it by saying yes to life. In this talk, Tilak is going to show how different forms of emotions and energies are running through you. They are the flow of intelligence from earth, fire, water, air and space, going through you as emotional currents.
Tilak will show you different openings that will connect you to the flow of the earth, to the flare of passion, to the currents of the emotional waves, and to the space of brilliance, which as a result will actually bring you into a state of unconditional wonder, spontaneous fascination and emotional ventilation.
Most of the things you experience in life are so mechanical and serious. Then they become mental and cerebral, and you do not really feel an intimacy within you or an emotional combustion when you try to design or create or talk to people. Tilak will show you the true nature of intimacy that can come only by feeling your own presence. This has nothing to do with anything that has happened in your life or future, because your presence is in touch with and is connected to the flow of life through the incredible intelligence going through you from earth, fire, water, air and space. This is a very powerful experience and, as Tilak says, “Life is an infinite experience you can live from moment to moment everyday, with lightness and joy.”

Inflammation – The #1 Key to Reversing Chronic Disease and Aging
Regardless of where they are located in the body and the names that we have given them, all diseases lead back to inflammation. Inflammation is the trigger mechanism that makes every health condition worse. Research now shows that inflammation not only worsens diseases, it also accelerates aging. It is the number one lifestyle factor that can easily be changed to help us reach the age of 100 and above. More than just telomere length, inflammation is better at predicting overall health and aging. Learn how to eliminate inflammation by eating a plant-based diet and using natural anti-inflammatories.

His tipping point came in1997 when he (barely) woke up one day, realized he had an out-of-control drug problem and checked himself into rehab. In rehab, he had a profound awakening and set out on a personal quest to find real truth and healing in his life. In 1998, Lee founded The Ranch Recovery Center in Tennessee and later The Canyon Treatment Center in Malibu California and has been a creative force in the Mental Health and Recovery scene for over 15 years. As a natural offshoot of his work in the rehab world Lee authored “The Spirit Recovery Meditation Journal” published by Health Communications, Inc., a book to assist people in reclaiming their lives. At the same time a movie was in the making via his Spirit Recovery journeys. Lee is the Executive Producer and has a leading role in the documentary “Dreaming Heaven”, the true story of the experiences of 18 people over 5 days at the Pyramids in Teotihuacan, Mexico. Lee has led many journeys to this place of power and has developed a far-reaching relationship with the mystery of the shamanic world that is present there. The documentary chronicles one of these experiential journeys in a deeply moving way.
In the force-to-be-reckoned-with spirit of his family, Lee has truly made a legacy of his own. He has four daughters, two grand daughters and lives between his ranch in Tennessee, home in Malibu, California and the Dreaming House in Teotihuacan, Mexico with his equally strong-hearted wife, Mee Tracy McCormick and their two young daughters Lola and Isabella.
Lee McCormick & Gini Gentry – Dreaming Heaven
Toltec Wisdom teaches that our lives can be a dream of heaven on earth – a dream filled with an abundance of peace, happiness, grace and love. In Dreaming Heaven, we learn that this life is open to anyone who is willing to take the first step. Toltec spirit guides Lee McCormick and Gini Gentry describe the ways we can use our capacity to decide for ourselves how we will respond to the experiences of our lives. “We can take the awesome power we already have – the power to dream an entire reality – and choose to dream a life of Heaven on Earth.”
In this program Lee and Gini reveal, for the first time, this many-thousand year old path to illumination. Through the film, journey book, meditations and music they encourage us towards a rediscovery of the “true self” that exists beneath the stories, masks, and dramas of their lives. And, we bear witness as they shed layers of mistaken identity, fearful beliefs, and limitations – to finally stand, in triumphant awareness, at the top of the great Pyramid of the Sun.

Gay has consistently juggled her parallel passions for the environment, public policy and communication through film all in an effort to deepen our human experience and success while on this marvelous planet. Gay started making documentary films out of college in the late 80s. Her first, The WIPP Trail, narrated by Robert Redford, cast a critical eye at our nation’s first and still world’s only underground nuclear waste repository. It became a community organizing tool and aired on PBS nationally followed by a panel discussion. My Body Belongs to Me, a children’s pro-active educational program on sexual abuse, earned the American Film Festival award for “Guidance & Values Education”. Her company co-produced Dr. Andrew Weil’s first PBS programs in the mid 90s.
Gay then co-founded and managed two environmental technology companies: Earthstone International and Growstone. Under the Bill Richardson Administration she served eight years on the EIB, a regulatory board in charge of environmental management and consumer protection for the State of New Mexico. Under her tenure the EIB spear-headed the passage of the most comprehensive regulations on greenhouse gases in the country.
Today, she is again concentrating her passion to inform and enlighten through her film company CNS Communications, LLC. The project, Dying to Know has been a labor of love she has cultivated on and off for 17 years; footage so compelling is was haunting her to finish. She is grateful to be back to her life’s passion making films & telling meaningful stories.
Gay Dillinghan – Dying To Know
Dying To Know is a film about two seminal figures of our time, Timothy Leary and Ram Dass. It is a film about their relationship and their journeys set against the backdrop of the 60’s. It’s the story of the cultural revolution, of the love generation and experimentation with consciousness expanding drugs that touched and changed so many lives. Its cast includes many of the most recognizable figures of the time, and ultimately, it is a portrait of life and death, the quest for consciousness and meaning and purpose and eventually, the question we all have about the ultimate mystery.
Dying To Know is narrated by Robert Redford. It will be shown in a special screening Friday evening, October 9th.

Pamela Costello MD. Ph.D – Healing the Aging Brain – Reversing Neuroinflammatory and Neurodegenerative Disease.
Reclaiming your best brain health is an Integrative Medicine approach in healing your brain and nervous system. My neurosurgical-medical practice is based on a deep understanding of the body’s inflammatory and subsequent degenerative processes. This extensive education, combined with my experience from a career as a neurosurgeon, have allowed me tremendous insights into causal mechanisms and subsequent reversal of neuroinflammatory illnesses.
Through a Holistic approach such as that of Integrative or Biological Medicine, root causes such as environmental toxicity and chronic, low grade infections are identified and treated, and the body is restored to balance. Through this approach we are empowered to participate in manifesting our own healing, and are given tools that will allow us to continue to maintain wellness and thrive and steps can be taken to help the body clear these toxins, thereby stimulating the body’s own regulatory forces, which brings about healing from within.
