Living Fully & Letting Go

Thriving, hope, and meaning, within the context of illness, have been the common thread woven throughout Susan Bauer-Wu's professional and personal life. Her genuine passion, commitment, and skill in optimizing quality of life and healing and promoting wellness are remarkable. This is exemplified in her touching and inspiring presentations, her transformational resilience retreats, as well as her solid research and scholarship. Her vision, knowledge, and wisdom— of how to thrive amidst the challenges of illness and our busy, high stress/high tech world— touch the core of many.
