Psychologist Daniel Goleman was born on March 7, 1946 in Stockton, California. He earned a Ph.D. from Harvard. Goleman wrote his first book, "The Meditative Mind" after studying ancient psychology systems and meditation practices in India and Sri Lanka. Goleman wrote about psychology and related fields for the New York Times for 12 years beginning in 1984. In 1993 he co-founded the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning. He is also a co-chairman of The Consortium for Research on Emotional Intelligence in Organizations and a member of the Mind and Life Institute's board of directors. Goleman has written several popular books, including "Emotional Intelligence," "Social Intelligence," and "Ecological Intelligence." He received a Career Achievement award for journalism from the American Psychological Association and was elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science to recognize his efforts to communicate the behavioral sciences to the public.

New York Times bestselling author Gregg Braden is known for his writing style that bridges science and spirituality. After a successful career as a Computer Geologist for Phillips Petroleum during the 1970s energy crisis, he worked as a Senior Computer Systems Designer with Martin Marietta. In 1991 he became The First Technical Operations Manager for Cisco Systems. For more than 22 years, Gregg searched high mountain villages, remote monasteries, and forgotten texts to uncover timeless secrets. To date, his work has produced many thought-provoking books: The Isaiah Effect, The God Code, The Divine Matrix, and his most recent, Fractal Time: The Secret of 2012 and a New World Age.

Lynne McTaggart is an internationally recognised spokesperson on the science of spirituality and the award-winning author of five books, including The Field, which has been published in 14 languages. She is also co-executive director of Conatus, which publishes some of the world's most respected health and spiritual newsletters, including What Doctors Don't Tell You and Living the Field. She lives in London.
