Next Wave Of Speakers Announced For TEDxStanleyPark Event

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 16, 2016 The latest wave of speakers were announced today by TEDxStanleyPark.  These dynamic speakers are slated to participate in TEDxStanleyPark's multi-speaker event happening on May 28, 2016 from 10am-6pm at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver.

This year's theme of the event is Ideas to Action: Innovative Talks for Optimistic Changemakers and this newest round of speakers will be touching upon such exciting topics as, putting lust back into our marriages, decreasing worry and increasing peace of mind, and how being different can be the best thing ever. The list of new speakers include:

  • Maureen McGrath-Sexless Marriage: The Growth in Sexless Marriages is an Epidemic. How Can We Get Lust Back Into Our Marriages? Love, marriage, and sex all at the same time? Unrealistic perhaps given that over 50% end in divorce and of the remaining marriages, 20% are sexless. Is it the social construct of marriage that makes sex an expectation that couples cannot meet? Why we've lost the lust and ways to get it back in marriage.

  • Isabelle Mercier-The Gift of a Zero Tolerance Life: A Simple Model to Decrease Worry and Increase Peace of Mind. 95% of North Americans either go to bed or wake up worrying about something; and worrying is the #1 bulb dimmer and performance killer of all time. Isabelle has discovered that what we tolerate we worry about and reveals her simple but powerful model to decrease worry and increase of peace of mind.

  • Gary Patterson-Be Different and Proud of It: We Have Hidden Candles Under Bushes for Too Long, Let Them Light the World. Diversity lies at the heart of the universe. But, although we humans reflect that reality, we are not always comfortable with it. Unfortunately, religion is too often used to justify and support intolerance, instead of expanding our vision. The growing change in attitudes toward LGBT people is good example of religion at its worst and best.
