Jacqueline will be interviewing me and 23 other of the world’s top thought leaders about how to achieve the relationship you’ve always dreamed of having.

Here is a sampling of the amazing experts who will be a part of this series…

Marla Cilley. Marla is the bestselling author of Sink Reflections, co-author of the New York Times Best Seller Body Clutter, syndicated newspaper columnist, radio show host and mentor of millions as the FlyLady. With her southern charm and inspirational emails, FlyLady guides those living in CHAOS (Can’t Have Anyone Over Syndrome) and clutter. She has her own Blog Talk Radio Channel, weekly syndicated column in over 250 newspapers around the world and she has been featured in numerous major magazines and newspapers and tv, including: CNN and The Today Show.

Hal Runkel LMFT. Hal Runkel, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist has dedicated his life to helping families stay calm and connected. He is the best-selling author of “ScreamFree Parenting” and a sought-after international speaker. Hal is also the founder of The ScreamFree Institute, a not-for-profit organization working to build-up a worldwide network of certified leaders, each one reaching countless families with the generation-changing ScreamFree message. In addition to his counseling, speaking, and writing activities, he is active in training and equipping these leaders worldwide. Hal and his wife Jenny have been married for 17 years, and reside with their two children in the Atlanta area.

Sonia Choquette. Sonia Choquette is a third generation intuitive and prolific writer. Her books have sold over a million copies worldwide, including her NY Times Bestseller “The Answer Is Simple…. Love Yourself, Live Your Spirit”. Sonia is passionate, dynamic, powerful, and direct in her ability to instantly liberate people from the limitations and fears (a five-sensory life) and leads them to create a far more effective, spirit guided (six-sensory) successful life which she insists is “our natural way”. Using her highly developed, finely-tuned intuitive skills, she can instantly identify self-sabotaging patterns and life obstacles, and guide people past them and directly on to success in all their goals. No-nonsense, to-the-point, practical, down-to-earth, and often hilarious in her delivery, Sonia’s intuitive gifts and engaging Spirit inspire even the most cynical. There is no doubt about it: to meet Sonia in person is to change your life.

Byron Katie. Byron Katie is a multiple Bestselling author and speaker who has one job: to teach people how to stop suffering. When Katie, as she is called, appears, lives change. The Work has brought freedom to millions around the world through free public events, weekend workshops, nine-day School for The Work, and 28-day residential Turnaround House. Katie’s six books include the bestselling Loving What Is, I Need Your Love—Is That True?, and A Thousand Names for Joy. In 1986, at the bottom of a ten-year fall into depression, anger, and addiction, Byron Katie woke up one morning and realized that all suffering comes from believing our thoughts. She realized that when she believed her stressful thoughts, she suffered, but that when she questioned them, she didn’t suffer, and that this is true for every human being. Her simple but powerful method of inquiry is called The Work.

Dr. Michele Borba. Michele Borba, Ed.D. is an internationally renowned educator, award-winning author, parenting expert and child and adolescent expert.

2. On October 8th SISFI is hosting a very special day, to pay honor and tribute to the victims and people who have been and are affected by the impacts and effects of abuse and bullying in our world, we ask that you take a moment to reflect on these things in our own lives. Many have been lost, fallen and are slipping away from us because of the decadent and callous mentality towards each other as a people, and we must take the time to recognize the severity and seriousness of these issues around us and how they trickle down to every aspect of our society.
