Every once in a great while, perhaps in high school, more likely college, we encounter a teacher who inspires us, who gives us a new outlook on life, who in a short time, becomes our mentor, role model, and a friend. Teachers like these who “touch our hearts and change so many lives,” are the unsung heroes of humanity. By all accounts, Inspirational speaker Brian Luke Seaward is one such teacher. He’s passionate, witty, humorous, and perhaps most of all, inspiring. He truly touches hearts, and most anyone will tell you, this is how he heals. Teaching is healing, and through his teachings, he offers a unique synthesis of insights blending the “ageless wisdom” of human spirituality with the topic of stress to reveal the unique alchemy of humanity and divinity, what Joseph Campbell called the “Hero’s Journey.”
An extremely popular speaker at various conferences from the National Wellness Institute, American Journal of Health Promotion and the Institute of Noetic Sciences to the National Fibromyalsia Association and Healing Touch International, Brian leaves everyone inspired, educated and entertained. Through it all, he reminds us, stress knows no demographic boundaries.
His colleague and mentor Larry Dossey, M.D. says, “Dr. Seaward daringly goes beyond the usual approach to the subject (of stress) to speak of the soul and of human spirituality because he realizes that stress management and maximal health are impossible to attain unless the questions of life’s meaning are addressed.”
In addition to teaching several thousand students at the University of Illinois, University of Maryland, The American University, the University of Colorado, and the University of Northern Colorado, not to mention thousands of workshop participants, Dr. Seaward, a TEDx speaker, has shared the insights of meditation with the staff at the White House (’90-94), taught stress management techniques with various heads of state, and coached relaxation techniques to several Olympic athletes, Broadway actors, media personalities, and leaders of several multinational corporations. His corporate clients include: Hewlett Packard, Motorola, Procter & Gamble, Conoco Oil, Quaker Oats, John Deere, BP-Amoco, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Glaxo-Smith-Kline, Organic Valley Dairy, KPMG, Seagate, the US Army and many others.

As personal and professional responsibilities mount, the cry for help begins as a muffled statement: “I need to come up for air!” Staying submerged under the pressures of a high tech world isn’t the answer.
The basics of stress management/resiliency are nothing more than common sense, yet common sense isn’t too common with the stress of umpteen responsibilities. Economic meltdown, information overload, corporate downsizing, urban sprawl, chronic diseases, on-demand everything, global warming, techno-stress, 24/7 accessibility; the list of personal and planetary stressors is nearly endless.
This presentation highlights the essential tools for stress decompression; from optimism and assertiveness skills (healthy boundaries) to humor (comic relief) and relaxation skills so that you can catch your breath, regain a sense of balance in your life and reclaim your sense of empowerment to navigate gracefully on your life journey in the global community (this is Dr. Seaward’s most popular corporate presentation).
At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to…
– Define the terms “wellness” and “stress management”
– Identify the four styles of mismanaged anger
