* Are you, too, feeling “tested” as the world is in crisis?

* Would you like to shift from stress to strength?

* Ready to strengthen your own sense of resilience?

During This Interview We’ll Explore:

The world is in crisis, but you don’t have to be. We all know resilient people who bounce back from hardship to create a more fulfilling life. That’s the promise of change. Other people stress out and melt down, losing hope and health. That’s the danger of change. The good news is that resilience isn’t a genetic gift for the lucky few. It’s an easily understood skill that anyone can practice and master. Resilient people and companies face facts head-on, look for deeper meaning, are great improvisers, laugh often, and know how to manage stress.

A new kind of natural selection is already having its way with us. We’re being prepared to become a whole-brain species and to use the full potential of both right and left brain to recreate the world.

* How to hold fear in the palm of your hand without being burned by it’s fire.

* Putting the 3 Secrets of Resilience to work in your life.

* Accessing the genius within you that is ready and able to re-create the world.

* What it takes to train your brain for success.

* Living with Vision and Purpose regardless of what is going on in the external world.

Note From Life Coach Mary:

For years people kept asking me, “Do you know Joan Borysenko’s work?” Finally last year, I purchased several of her books, including “Inner Peace for Busy People” and instantly realized what kindred spirits we are: both on a mission to expand inner peace and well-being in the world. I admire Joan Borysenko’s work tremendously, as she’s authored numerous best-selling books, is published in countless journals and speaks to audiences worldwide — most importantly affecting millions by her life’s work. I love how she combines spirituality and science, offering both the practical take-home strategies while addressing the mental, emotional and spiritual components. I’m honored to bring Dr. Joan to the Conversations with the Masters series.

About Joan Borysenko:

This distinguished pioneer in integrative medicine is a world-renowned expert in the mind/body connection. Her work has been foundational in an international health-care revolution that recognizes the role of meaning, and the spiritual dimensions of life, as an integral part of health and healing. Eloquent and inspiring in settings that range from hospitals to hospices, from theaters to conference venues, and from boardrooms to houses of worship, she is a credible bridge between faith and reason. Her brilliance, humor, and authenticity—in combination with the latest research—make her a compelling and inspiring speaker and writer.

After graduating magna cum laude from Bryn Mawr College in 1967, Dr. Borysenko earned her doctorate in Medical Sciences from the Harvard Medical School, where she completed post-doctoral training in cancer cell biology. Her first faculty position was at the Tufts University College of Medicine in Boston. But after the death of her father from cancer, she became more interested in the person with the illness than in the disease itself, and returned to Harvard Medical School to complete a second postdoctoral fellowship, this time in the new field of behavioral medicine. Under the tutelage of Herbert Benson, M.D., who first identified the relaxation response and brought meditation into medicine, she was awarded a Medical Foundation Fellowship and completed her third post-doctoral fellowship in psychoneuroimmunology.

In the early 1980’s Dr. Borysenko co-founded a Mind/Body clinic with Dr. Benson and Dr. Ilan Kutz, became licensed as a psychologist, and was appointed instructor in medicine at the Harvard Medical School. Her years of clinical experience and research culminated in the 1987 publication of the New York Times best seller, Minding the Body, Mending the Mind, which sold over 400,000 copies. The 20th anniversary edition, newly revised, was published in 2007. Author or co-author of 13 other books and numerous audio and video programs, including the Public Television special Inner Peace for Busy People, she is the Founding Partner of Mind/Body Health Sciences, LLC located in Boulder, Colorado and the Director of The Claritas Institute Interspiritual Mentor Training Program.

Dr. Borysenko’s warmth and credibility—plus her lively sense of humor—create a compelling presence. You can access video clips of Joan’s inspirational reflections in the Community Members section of this Web site. She also hosts a weekly Internet radio show, Your Soul’s Compass, for Hay House and Joan is one of the most popular and sought after speakers in the field of health, healing, and spirituality, her engaging and well researched presentations are perfect both for professionals and for the general public.
