Lissa Rankin, M.D.
Lissa Rankin, M.D., New York Times bestselling author of Mind Over Medicine, is a physician, speaker, founder of the Whole Health Medicine Institute, and has starred in two PBS specials. Lissa’s transition from being a conventional surgeon to an author and spiritual seeker involved a profound process of breakdown, loss, letting go, and coming to terms with uncertainty. At the other side, she discovered an unimagined level of joy, purpose, and effectiveness in the world that she is driven to share with others. Her retreats, seminars, and new book, The Fear Cure, offer support and inspiration to anyone facing a similar process of transformation.
When doing what she can to sprinkle pixie dust on a fear-based culture, Lissa loves to hike, ski, and dance. She lives in the San Francisco Bay area with her daughter, and blogs at LissaRankin.com.
