Gwen Garcelon

Public Affairs Host, DJ

My life’s commitment is to nurture and expand the innate capacity in myself and others to embody a world of beauty, unity, health and justice. As a staff member of the international citizen action group RESULTS, I coached and trained volunteer political advocates world-wide in the movement to end poverty for over a decade. I learned about being a game-changer by working alongside visionary leaders like Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Muhammad Yunus, Lynne Twist of The Hunger Project and Founder of The Pachamama Alliance, and Marshall Saunders, Founder of the Citizens Climate Lobby.

As an executive and life coach, my deep joy is in helping people to create breakthrough personal and professional relationships and an “inner game” capable of generating the thriving world they know is possible. My work is my stand for the power of people to transform the world as they become more authentic, loving and whole expressions of their life’s purpose.
