Shefali Tsabary, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist, Author and Lecturer
Guest Occupation: Clinical Psychologist, Author, Lecturer
Guest Biography:

Shefali Tsabary, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist with a private practice in New York. She received her doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Columbia University, New York. As she was exposed to Eastern teachings at an early age, her specialty is in the integration of this Eastern philosophy and Western psychology. It is this blend of East and West that allows her to reach a global audience, and establishes her as one of a kind in the field of mindfulness psychology.

Dr. Shefali has worked with a varied demographic; from survivors of the Tsunami to women from economically disadvantaged countries; from inner city youth to suburban families and corporate leaders. In addition to her private practice, Dr. Shefali conducts regular workshops on Mindful Living and Conscious Parenting around the world.

Dr. Shefali is an author whose first book, "It's a Mom: What you should know about the early years of motherhood" debuted on the Indian bestseller list for four weeks. Her second book, "The Conscious Parent" is being published by Namaste Publishing.


Parents seek Shefali's words because they find great resonance with her Mindful Parenting approach which espouses a way of "being" as opposed to incessant "doing" - where alliances and mutual empowerment are the hallmark of the parent-child relationship as opposed to conflict and power plays. Corporations seek her out because her Mindful Living approach helps employees to break through inner barriers to success and find greater resilience, empowerment and purpose in their work. Schools seek her out because she offers enriching teacher training workshops focused on transforming the classroom into a living laboratory, where children not only learn valuable academic lessons but, more importantly, life lessons, such as frustration tolerance, conflict resolution, and empathic connectivity.

Shefali's first book "It's a Mom: What you should know about the early years of motherhood" debuted on the Indian National Bestseller List for four weeks. She is currently working on her second book which is focused on Mindful Living. This book turns the traditional notion of parenthood on its head; shifting the epicenter from a linear, parent-to-child relationship, to a mutual, circular,parent-with-child, relationship. In this new paradigm, the focus of the parenting dynamic is not so much on the spiritual and emotional development of the child, as it is of the parent. Here, t he child is recognized not only as the emotional receiver of its parent's psychological and spiritual legacy, but as the usher of its parent's psychological and spiritual transcendence.

Guest Biography:

Eric Merola
Director, Editor, Producer, Screenwriter --> Director of Burzynski: The Film, a documentary that tells the story of one doctor's fight to cure cancer without the use of chemotherapy and other invasive approaches.

Seek out BURZYNSKI (maybe its doctor, too) in Eric Merola's new documentary; Interview with the filmmaker


Eric Merola, director of Burzynski: The Movie. Topics may include the use of Antineoplastons to cure certain forms of cancer, Antineoplastons versus other cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation, and why the FDA was committed to prosecute Dr. Burzynski.

Eric will reveal the shocking (true) story of a medical doctor and Ph.D. (biochemist) named Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski who won the largest, and possibly the most convoluted and intriguing legal battle against the Food and Drug Administration in American history.

Burzynski is the compelling story of a pioneering medical doctor and PhD biochemist who has discovered the genetic mechanism to cure most human cancers. This timely, eye-opening documentary takes the audience through the treacherous, yet victorious, 14-year journey that both Dr. Burzynski and his patients have had to endure in order to obtain FDA-approved clinical trials of Antineoplastons - resulting in the largest and most convoluted defeat against the Food and Drug Administration in American history.

Directed by Eric Merola, Burzynski details the heroic plight of the doctor who faced relentless governmental harassment in order to bring his life-saving treatment to the world. Various cancer survivors are presented in the film that chose Dr. Burzynski's treatment instead of surgery, chemotherapy or radiation - with full disclosure of their original medical records to support their full recovery from prior terminal cancer diagnoses. This whistle-blowing film was an Official Selection in the Byron Beach International Film Festival (Australia), San Luis Obispo International Film Festival (CA), Garden State Film Festival (NJ), Palm Beach Film Festival (FL), and Newport Beach Film Festival (CA), where it won the Humanitarian Vision Award.

Barrie M. Schwortz, Photographer, Shroud of Turin Researcher, Educator, Editor, Writer and Author
Guest Occupation: Photographer, Shroud of Turin Researcher, Educator, Editor, Writer, Author
Guest Biography:

The Shroud of Turin is a centuries old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. A man that millions believe to be Jesus of Nazareth. Is it really the cloth that wrapped his crucified body, or is it simply a medieval forgery, a hoax perpetrated by some clever artist? Modern science has completed hundreds of thousands of hours of detailed study and intense research on the Shroud. It is, in fact, the single most studied artifact in human history, and we know more about it today than we ever have before. And yet, the controversy still rages.

The Shroud of Turin went on public display for the first time in ten years on April 10, 2010, in the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in the city of Turin, Italy. Visitors from around the world have been flocking to see the Shroud since the opening day of the exhibition. On May 5th, Turin authorities stated that more than 2 million pilgrims are now expected over the course of the exhibition, which closes on May 23, 2010. This figure surpasses earlier estimates by several hundred thousand visitors. This exhibition also marks the first opportunity for the public to view the Shroud since its controversial restoration in 2002.

On Sunday, May 2, 2010, Pope Benedict XVI visited the Turin Cathedral and venerated the relic, after which he delivered a homily titled "If We Are United to Christ, We Can Truly Love." He then went on to deliver some additional comments on the Shroud. An English translation of those important comments was published by Zenit.org in an article titled, "Pope's Remarks After Venerating Shroud of Turin - In the Hour of Extreme Solitude We Will Never Be Alone."

Barrie Schwortz was the Official Documenting Photographer for the Shroud of Turin Research Project,the team that conducted the first in-depth scientific examination of the Shroud in 1978. Today, he plays an influential role in Shroud research.
