Jenny McCarthy

When Jenny McCarthy first made public her own experience with her son’s diagnosis and subsequent recovery from autism, her unique ability to articulate the unspoken words of thousands of mothers and fathers across the world was recognized immediately. In 2008, she proudly became President of Generation Rescue, dedicated to recovery for children with autism spectrum disorders by providing guidance and support for medical treatment to directly improve the child’s quality of life for all families in need. She is honored to be part of this international movement of scientists, physicians and families.

Throughout her career, Jenny’s honesty, humility and humor have enabled her to break down boundaries. A highly-regarded NY Times Best Selling author, Jenny’s books include the bestsellers Belly Laughs, Baby Laughs, Life Laughs, Louder Than Words: A Mother’s Journey in Healing Autism,  Mother Warriors: A Nation of Parents Healing Autism Against All Odds and Love, Lust & Faking It. She has also authored Healing and Preventing Autism, co-written with Dr. Jerry Kartzinel, published in April 2009.

With Sarah Clifford Scheflen, a practicing speech language pathologist, Jenny has also created Teach2Talk, a series of 16 DVDs for children, with subjects ranging from improving vocabulary skills to dealing with negative behaviors and temper tantrums—entertaining children while teaching them language, behavior and social skills.

As an actress, Jenny has nearly 50 television and film credits to her name. She has also appeared in a multitude of high profile advertising campaigns, as well as gracing the covers of magazine across the world, including Rolling Stone, People, Shape and Playboy.

Jenny currently resides in Los Angeles, California, with her son, Evan.

Byron Katie

Byron Katie has one job: to teach people how to end their own suffering. Her simple yet powerful method of self-inquiry is called The Work. When Katie appears, lives change.

Since 1986, she has worked with millions of people at free public events, in prisons, hospitals, churches, V. A. treatment centers, corporations, universities, and schools. Participants at her weekend workshops, the nine-day School for The Work, and the twenty-eight-day residential Turnaround House report profound experiences and lasting transformations. “Katie’s events are riveting to watch,” the Times of London reported. Eckhart Tolle calls The Work “a great blessing for our planet.” And Time magazine named Katie a “spiritual innovator for the new millennium.”

Byron Katie has written three bestselling books: Loving What Is, I Need Your Love—Is That True?, and A Thousand Names for Joy. Her other books are Question Your Thinking, Change The World; Who Would You Be Without Your Story?; and, for children, Tiger-Tiger, Is It True?
