HEALTH – Become your own Best Doctor – Dr. Elson Haas has been a integrative family physician for more than 40 years and he is founder-director of the Preventive Medical Center of Marin, recently voted Best Holistic Clinic in Marin by Pacific Sun. A quote from the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates has influenced Elson during his career – “Everyone has a doctor in him or her; we just have to help it in its work. The natural healing force within each one of us is the greatest force in getting well.” He has also drawn inspiration from the barefoot doctors of ancient China who were paid to keep people healthy and not just to treat them when they got sick. Elson will share insights and practical methods drawn from his experience with thousands of patients.

LOVE – Beyond Mars Venus – when John Gray’s international bestseller “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” was first published in 1992 it changed the discussion about relationships.

Now he presents “Beyond Mars Venus:  Relationship skills for Today’s Complex World”

John will talk about why being a man or woman in today’s society is more nuanced and complex than ever.  Yet men and women remain fundamentally different on a hormonal level despite these social changes. What do these differences mean in today’s ever-evolving relationships?

  • How do the changes in workplace and home roles impact relationships?
  • Is gender neutrality a realistic perception in 21st century relationships?
  • Are there differences in our relationships at different life stages? If so, what are they?
  • If everyone could take on one action today in his or her relationship, what would it be?
  • What are the three most common roadblocks to easy communication between the sexes?  How do we best work with them?
