Peg Conley - Imagine the Life You'd Love to Live, Then Live It

Peg Conley has been an artist all her life, but, like many of us, took a long detour into the working world -- in her case, corporate sales, where she found a lot of success and was able to raise a happy family. Art became the thing she did on vacations, weekends, and when she could carve time out of her busy life. Something gnawed at her, a nagging feeling that life might hold something else for her in the midst of it all. Then came the big "aha" moment. Peg heard a small voice inside: "Imagine the life you want to live, then live it. It's that simple " Her family encouraged Peg to pursue her passion. Despite a great deal of fear, Peg dropped her big job, big house, and big life and moved to San Francisco to start a business based on her artisan stationery. From a handful of hand-painted cards, calendars, and posters, her company Words and Watercolors was born and has been inspiring people, winning awards, and raking in the sales ever since. Peg's intention with Imagine the Life You'd Love to Live, Then Live It: 52 Inspired Habits and Playful Prompts is to inspire and her art and writing all speak to life's great truths and those aha moments.

Peg Conley loves to paint the beauty of the natural world to delight and inspire others. She creates greeting cards (more than 175 designs to date) and other gifts including boxed notes, memo list pads and wrapping paper. She lives in San Francisco.

Mario Batali - America: Farm to Table

Angelico Hall, Dominican University
Ticket: $40 (includes a complimentary signed book)
Please note the new start time of 1:00pm for this event!

 

 

In conversation with Liam Mayclem

Mario Batali, who knows the importance of ingredients to any amazing dish, sees farmers as the rock stars of the food world. In this new book America—Farm to Table, he celebrates American farmers: their highquality products and their culture defined by hard work, integrity, and pride. Batali asked his chef friends from Nashville to San Francisco to tell him who their favorite farmers were, and those farmers graciously shared their personal stories along with their top-of-the-line produce and products.

Batali counts 24 restaurants, nine cookbooks, nurmerous television shows and the 50,000-square-foot Eataly marketplace among his ever-expanding empire of deliciousness. Mario and his business partner, Joe Bastianich, recently opened B&B Burger&Beer in The Venetian Hotel & Casino, their fourth restaurant in las Vegas. Mario is also the author of nine cookbooks including the James Beard Award Winning Molto Italiano: 327 Simple Italian Recipes; and Molto Batali: Simple Family Meals from my Home to Yours. Mario appears 3 times a week on ABC's "The Chew," a daytime talk show that celebrates and explores life through food. 

Emmy award-winning Liam Mayclem is the host & producer of KCBS’ Foodie Chap segments and former KPIX 5 TV’s Eye on The Bay, which airs weekends. He has cooked with the world’s top chefs like Thomas Keller, Tyler Florence, Martin Yan, Cat Cora and interviewed music royalty, including BB King, Ringo Starr, Sting, and Tony Bennett.

Tommy Rosen - Recovery 2.0

Through more than 20 years of recovery from addiction, noted yoga teacher Tommy Rosen learned a lot about what works and what doesn't work in recovery. From his explorations on the yoga mat and in 12-Step rooms, he found a path to sustainable recovery that includes mind-body practices, a profound look at diet, and a more holistic and inclusive perspective on the 12 Steps. This led him to realize that recovery happens in stages, and that by utilizing the best practices of the 12 Steps in combination with yoga and meditation, he could achieve lasting freedom from addiction.
In Recovery 2.0, Tommy shares his own past struggles with addiction and the powerful insights that helped him to identify and break free from the obstacles that stand in the way of recovery. Building off the key tenets of the 12-Step program, he lays out an innovative approach where deeper levels of detoxification and transformation allow you to uproot addiction and thrive.

Tommy Rosen is the founder and host of the Recovery 2.0: Beyond Addiction Online Conference Series. One of the pioneers in the burgeoning field of yoga and recovery, he holds advanced certifications in both Hatha and Kundalini Yoga and has 23 years of recovery from acute drug addiction.
