Sande Hart is an award-winning leader in the fields of women’s empowerment and interfaith community building. She founded the women’s interfaith international grassroots organization S.A.R.A.H. (The Spiritual And Religious Alliance for Hope) the morning of 911, an instinct to gather women of diverse faiths to protect all that they consider sacred. Having spent the past 19 years as President and public face of S.A.R.A.H., Sande is actively engaged in leadership in the peace, interfaith, compassion, indigenous peoples, community building and women’s empowerment sectors. She founded and served as director for the international organization Charter For Compassion’s Women and Girls sector, served as Chair for the United Religions Initiative for North America and serves on the Women’s Task Force for The Parliament of World’s Religions. She is also the Founder of Compassionate California, which recently became established into law as the first Compassionate State in the world by the governor’s office. Sande has conducted countless workshops and produced major and smaller events in more than seven countries, presented on panels in universities, global and local organizations, and city and state level institutions including a historic project at a women’s prison. She has also had the honor of offering keynote addresses and currently presents regular l y on podcasts and social media webinar platforms.

Sande is currently being inducted into the Women’s Oral History Archives for Claremont Colleges in California. Above all, Sande is a mother, grandmother, wife, aunt, and sister from the steep seaside cliffs in Southern California.

Like the readers she attracts, Sande is a seeker. As she shares in the introduction to The Liminal Odyssey, “I figure this is just an idea that has been floating in the Universe, waiting to bump into, and burrow into someone who was a perfect specimen, with a combination of life experience, suffering, wild adventures and insight; one who felt this exploration as a bigger responsibility to ride and/or follow until it became meaningful. Once it identified me as a ripe recipient, it picked up speed and accelerated in my direction. As this concept was hurtling through space, it collected particles of other philosophies and wisdom from those I have personally had the privilege to bump into in my life so far. The moment it hit me, it appeared as a satisfying feeling, the one you get when placing the last piece into a puzzle creating a complete picture.”

This is Sande’s first book, with exception to the children’s workbook Make A Difference 101.

Sande has been featured, interviewed, or written chapters in others’ published books and can be found on including:

Zen Cryar DeBrucke

Zen Cryar DeBrucke is founder of Smart Soul Academy, which makes accessible globally her seminal work on the Internal Guidance System (IGS) that has made her an international sensation.

A member of the illustrious Transformational Leadership Council created by Jack Canfield, uniting many of the world’s top personal growth luminaries, Zen has worked with over 40,000 people, including training 4,000 master students, on the nuances of how recognize and act on the messages of their IGS to achieve a peak life in alignment with their life purpose.

An internationally renowned inspirational teacher, speaker, author and executive coach, Zen’s passion is teaching people to tap into their innate inner guidance to generate consistent, successful results in life. The result is replacing exhaustion, anxiety, fear and dread with ease, joy, flow and fulfillment. Zen's programs have helped thousands of people all over the world transform their lives for the better, with sustained positive changes in their business and personal lives. Her compassion radiates through her work, and her style is down to earth, practical, humorous and wise. Zen’s international bestselling book, Your Inner GPS is an easy-to-read how-to on the way to let this inner wisdom guide you to success, and the Smart Soul Academy provides a deeper easily-accessible online guide to mastering this art.

The key to Zen’s success arrived when she decoded her own Internal Guidance System and learned that everyone was born with a factory installed Inner GPS. In the beginning, she used it fuel her own success, as founder and CEO of one of the first Internet design companies in the world. The company grew exponentially, and worked with Fortune 500 companies, including Applied Materials, IBM, Electronic Arts, BP and VISA.

After that firm dissolved in the dot-com collapse, she found herself filling the request of many of her fellow entrepreneurs and executives to advise them on how she was seemingly emotionally untouched by the rollercoaster they were experiencing. It was the springboard for her to become a full-time executive coach and IGS guide. She has since coached thousands of business leaders to use their IGS for success in every area of their lives.

Zen’s rise to fame and success capped a life that began in an abusive dysfunctional home, saw her experience sexual abuse at the hands of someone outside her family, forced her to seek emancipation at 16 years old, dropped out of high school and then struggled to make a living until she discovered her IGS. She went on to earn a degree in Global Politics with Mandarin Chinese and Minor in Art History from U.C. Davis, before stepping into the rise of the San Francisco, CA, digital companies in the mid 1990s and became CEO and a founding member of The NetKitchen one of the first usability and internet design firms in the world.
Zen is a breast cancer survivor and busy home schooling mom, in additional to her Academy work.
