Dennis Merritt Jones

SPEAKING FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE UK

Throughout his lifetime, Dennis Merritt Jones has been on a quest to inspire and lift people to a higher expression of life. His personal vision is to guide people to their purpose.

Dennis' personal vision is to guide people to their purpose, knowing that when a person fully awakens to who they are and why they are on the planet, they begin to naturally share their gift with humankind and, in the process, create an enriching life for themselves and the world around them.

Dennis is the award winning author of 'The Art of Being ~ 101 Ways to Practice Purpose in Your Life' which received the Nautilus Gold Award designed to highlight books that offer new ideas and options for a better world for everyone. It was also a Silver Finalist in the Multiple Sclerosis Society Books for a Better Life Awards.

His most recent book, 'The Art of Uncertainty ~ How to Live in the Mystery of Life and Love It' was released in June 2011.

Dennis believes we each have the capacity and, ultimately, the responsibility to contribute something positive to this world, leaving it a better place than it was when we arrived. His teachings promote a contemporary, life-affirming, spiritually logical and positive outlook on life, which are reflected in his writings.

Dennis is a universal speaker who is equally comfortable speaking to an audience seeking spiritual inspiration or to those seeking a purely secular motivational message. He uses his understanding of universal principles to draw upon wisdom from both eastern and western philosophies.

Dennis believes that there is a new consciousness of unity, cooperation and reverence rising in humankind where the value of all life is considered sacred. He believes this consciousness of unity, cooperation and reverence for life and the planet will be one of the most significant influences upon society as we approach the challenges of 21st century living.

As a musician, Dennis Merritt Jones spent fifteen years in the entertainment industry writing songs and performing. As he grew spiritually, he was able to take his musical training and use it to create music that moves not only one's feet but also their heart.
His CDs, Awakening and Free To Be, offer you several different chants, along with meditation music, that will open you to your soul's presence and purpose.

Dennis was the founder and spiritual director of the International Center for Spiritual Living in Simi Valley, California for many years. Since 2008 he has been concentrating to taking his message to the world by means of his books, spiritual mentoring, keynote speaking and seminars.

He had an engagement as music director and soloist at the Dallas Center for Spiritual Living - there he became familiar with the 'New Thought' philosophy and loved its message and significance which made so much sense.

Album: Love Can Move The World

"This album is about peace and hope and life and joy.
These songs speak about my vision for what the world can be – about how living in the world can feel.
This is spiritual, not religious music.
I believe we are all here to 'celebrate the light' of the Spirit, regardless of our faith tradition.
I hope, as you listen to these songs, they will bring you to a place where you ask, 'What can I do to make the world around me better?' "

-Michael Gott

Your AgeEsteem® Catalyst

When Bonnie Fatio caught herself listening to society's relentless negative talk about age and aging. "Enough!" she told herself. From that day forward, she has embraced her age with a joyful outlook and focused on helping others do the same. The concept of AgeEsteem® – feeling good about yourself at the age you are today, every day – was born.

Bonnie's vision is a world where age and aging are celebrated and people of all ages are respected as contributing members of society. For this to happen each of us needs to feel good about ourselves at the age we are. AgeEsteem does just that: it motivates and challenges you to reach new heights in the prime of your life.

An internationally recognized speaker, Bonnie spreads AgeEsteem to people around the globe through her transformative talks and workshops. Her book, "AgeEsteem: Growing A Positive Attitude Toward Aging" offers practical tips and techniques to use immediately to feel good about your age. The uplifting vignettes and messages in her CD, "AgeEsteem," further inspire you to embrace aging.

In her dynamic and inspiring workshop, Bonnie will embolden you to lead the life you desire, accomplish your goals, live your dreams, and find meaning in your relationships and roles in life, whatever your age.

Now in her late 60s, Bonnie feels that life becomes more exciting every day!

Bonnie grew up in the United States and holds both American and Swiss citizenships. She and her husband, Gérard, live in Geneva, Switzerland.

I have a dream, a mission, a raison d'Ítre … To inspire and empower people just like you.

Almost 20 years ago my world came tumbling down around me and I found myself living away from home, with no money, no immediate prospects and my 2 children solely depending on me. It was very scary and it forced me to examine everything that so far I had believed about life.

What a wake-up call it turned out to be! It was in my darkest hour that I discovered that there is a Power in the Universe that I could use to transform my life.
That Power is the Power of Love and self-love is the first step to changing your life.

"When I speak of love I am not speaking of some sentimental or weak response …
Love is somehow the key that unlocks the door which leads to ultimate reality
."
Martin Luther King Jr

Love is the vibration that lifted me from where I was to where I wanted to be.

You can do it too - whatever your age and your present circumstances we'll show you how to truly
Love Your Life! - The Spiritual Awakening
