The Peace Brain Show

The Peace Brain Show with Dr Gail Lash
Show Host: 
Dr Gail Lash

What is Peace Brain? Peace Brain is a term that Dr. Gail Lash created to indicate a peaceful mind, body, spirit and world. Peace Brain is the synergistic connection between our mental and emotional bodies – the blending of the electrical power of the mind with the magnetic force of the heart. We humans cannot exercise our complete capabilities and innate gifts to manifest true Peace On Earth unless our Peace Brain is engaged, with these biological and spiritual centers working as one. Unity through Diversity is the goal.

Topics of Peace span the complete continuum of Science and Spirit – and so does The Peace Brain Show!  Listen and explore scientific and metaphysical concepts related to the human condition, animals and Nature, our relationship to Universal Energy and implementations of Peace worldwide with your Host, Dr. Gail Lash!

Drawing on her multifaceted background, Dr. Gail features guests who are Zoo and Aquarium leaders, Animal conservation partners, Community facilitators, social Justice organizations promoting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, National park operators, Metaphysicians, Energy healers, Angel workers, Animal communicators, and much more – all imparting their practical wisdom on how we each can create a world of Peace, Love, Justice and Beauty – manifesting “As Above So Below”.

From this, envision a map of the Earth being populated with “Places Of Peace” (markers and practices by these organizations and grassroots individuals) that when linked create Peace Trails around the world!  It is practical; it is powerful; it is possible!

The show is a one-hour format.  It begins with an opening quote and monologue segment by Dr. Gail, introducing the Peace topic for that show. This is followed by a 30 to 40-minute conversational interview with an amazing guest of note – done in the spirit of friendship, laughter, respect, contemplation and building community.  The show ends with a Peace Brain Meditation, in which Dr. Gail enables you to practice turning on and tuning into your Peace Brain!  Join us!

Primatologist, a Zoo Visionary and a world leader.
Guest Biography: 

Dr. Terry L. Maple is best known for his visionary leadership in revitalizing the Atlanta Zoo in the aftermath of one of the most publicized scandals in the history of American zoos. He was appointed director in 1984 and in 1985 founded and became CEO of Zoo Atlanta, a nonprofit corporation formed to operate the zoo. Zoo Atlanta’s privatization started a trend in the zoo industry. Former Mayor Andrew Young hailed Zoo Atlanta as the most successful privatization in Georgia history.  The zoo won five awards for excellence in exhibit design and conservation from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). 

Dr. Maple is the author and editor of more than 200 scientific publications, including ten books, and a past president of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), where he established the association’s first diversity initiative, worked to differentiate AZA institutions from roadside attractions, and strengthen the association’s scientific network. 

He is internationally recognized as an expert on the behavior, welfare, and conservation of great apes. 

Maple taught at Emory University and at the Georgia Institute of Technology for 30 years. He received his bachelor’s degree from the University of the Pacific and a Master's degree and Ph.D. in psychobiology from the University of California at Davis.

Dr. Maple retired from Zoo Atlanta in 2003 and became President/CEO of the Palm Beach Zoo in 2005.

He has been an advisor and consultant to the World Wildlife Fund, the African Wildlife Foundation, the Wildlife Society, the Walt Disney Company, and the National Institutes of Health and chairman of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International, and received a presidential appointment as a member of the National Museum Services Board.

Dr. Maple is currently the Professor in Residence and Director of Wildlife Wellness at Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens, where he is continuing his long legacy of promoting animal welfare and wellness.
