Accomplished actress, author and business woman will share her passion to help others clarify their potential
November 2, 2012 (Newswire.com) - New York, NY - Emmy-Award winning actress Lindsay Wagner will be a keynote speaker at the Get Your Voice On: A Celebration of Women Conference scheduled March 1-2, 2013 at the Hilton New York.
Once The Bionic Woman television series had ended, Wagner went on to become the Queen of television movies with more than 40 TV movies, 5 mini-series and 12 feature films to her name. Heavily involved in causes that are close to her heart, Wagner co-produced the successful 1990 TV movie Shattered Dreams about domestic violence. In 2004, she co-founded "Peacemakers Community," a non-profit organization that "offers families and individuals more constructive and peaceful ways of relating to each other and oneself in order to help end the cycle of violence."
As her career progressed, Wagner, selected film projects to highlight issues important to her such as: A Child's Cry (1985) about child abuse; The Taking of Flight 847 (1988) about the root complexities of terrorism, Fighting for My Daughter (1995) highlighting the problem of teen prostitution and Four Extraordinary Women (2006) on the emotional subject of breast cancer.
In recent years, Wagner has traveled worldwide presenting a series of meditation- and spiritually-based workshops and health and wellness retreats. Her program Lindsay Wagner's "Quiet the Mind & Open the Heart," helps participants recognize and deal with things that have diminished their lives while also assisting them to access peace, joy and connectedness. In addition she has co-authored two books: The High Road to Health, a best-selling vegetarian lifestyle cookbook and Lindsay Wagner's New Beauty: The Acupressure Facelift.
As a keynote speaker at Get Your Voice On: A Celebration of Women, Wagner will share her life and career as well as her passion and commitment to the advancement and awakening of human potential.
"Although many of us may know Lindsay from growing up with her on our television sets as The Bionic Woman or from other films she's done, her life's work in the world today is nothing short of spectacular," said Jennifer Wilkov, co-founder of the event. "I'm delighted to have Lindsay join us for Get Your Voice On! to share her insights and suggestions for how to quiet the mind and open the heart so our participants can use these valuable resources to really open up and get their voices on -big time!"
Michele Mattia, also a co-founder of Get Your Voice On: A Celebration of Women, said, "Many women have kept themselves anchored to lives that don't support the true gifts they are in this world by giving power to lack and limiting thoughts. Lindsay Wagner's willingness to follow her life path has allowed her to create a practice that doesn't just support human potential, but inspires action to shift our consciousness through the release of limiting thoughts, attitudes, beliefs and negative emotions in order to experience the life we deserve. Women need to hear Lindsay get her voice on!"
The event will be held Friday and Saturday, March 1 -2, 2013 at the Hilton New York in Manhattan located at 1335 Avenue of the Americas.
