The Ranger Way:
Living the Code On and Off the Battlefield

Join former Army Ranger, a hero of the 2012 Benghazi siege, and the subject of the book and movie Thirteen Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi as he shares life-changing lessons of discipline, motivation, success, and peace.

Thousands have heard Kris speak about his experiences in Benghazi.  Before he was a security contractor, he was a US Army Ranger from 2nd Battalion 75th Ranger Regiment.

Tanto shares stories from his training experiences that played a role in his team's heroic response in Benghazi as he explains the importance of demanding excellence when you commit to improving your life. He shows you how to define your mission, set goals that are in alignment with your values, and develop a battle plan that will maximize your chances of success. Tanto uses his experiences in Basic and Ranger Training to explore how to deal with mistakes and disappointment like a leader, accept responsibility, and turn every obstacle into an opportunity for growth. Being of service to others, and being willing to sacrifice, will help you succeed, and the power of humility, strength, faith, and brotherhood will sustain you on the road to accomplishing your mission.

On their forthcoming book:

Wake Up, Grow Up and Show Up: Calling Men Into the 21stCentury

They will share their experiences, personal stories, and a paradigm that synthesizes cutting edge work about masculinity from the fields of positive psychology, sociology, and personal development.

Rev. Sandy Moore

Love is a Collaborative Work of Art

Connection is vital for our own personal health and for healing our world.  Humans are wired for connection; however, in our world of seven billion people, loneliness is epidemic. 

Too often we are looking for the “Perfect Relationships,” but the truth is we are perfectly imperfect.  Sustainable relationships last not because they are perfect – but because people find the beauty, joy, and humor in the imperfections.

Healthy relationships—partnerships or communities—require effort, compromise, patience and shared goals, yet they are also unpredictable, creative and imperfect. 

Join Sandy in taking a look at how we can learn and support each other in creating both our personal world and our collective world as a world of understanding, compassion and love.  

Rev. Sandy Moore co-founded the Center for Universal Truth, now known as InSpirit Center for Spiritual Living Orange County, in May of 1999 with her husband, Rev. Kirk Moore, who is the Center’s music director.

Her journey to the ministry began in 1992 after the tragic, sudden death of her teenage daughter, Tara, in a car crash.  Following Tara’s death, Sandy and Kirk uncovered a fascination that Tara had for angels. Grief-stricken and searching for answers, the couple opened an angel store called Tara’s Angels, in San Juan Capistrano, as a way of honoring their beloved child. The specialty shop and the Moore’s story was widely covered by both local and national media, including a cover story in People Magazine and an in-depth piece on the TV news magazine, DatelineThis spotlight of recognition and attention accelerated Sandy’s desire to become a spiritual leader and she eventually co-founded a spiritual venue that hosts events, community gatherings, classes, guest speakers, and weekly broadcasts of positive, inspirational messages.  Rev. Sandy is the co-author with her daughter Deanna Moore of The Green Intention: Living in Sustainable Joy.

Carole Wells

On her new book Highjacked:
An Eyewitness Account of Evil

Carole Wells began working as an actress in films, television and musical and dramatic theater at 12 years old. At seventeen, she sang the coloratura solo in Puccini's operatic Messa di Gloria at the Hollywood Bowl and co-starred in the television series National Velvet, and later, Pistols ‘n Petticoats. She has appeared in 12 motion pictures (including Funny Lady), and over 100 television shows.

She shares her true story of what happened in 1977 when what would have been an idyllic honeymoon with her new husband, landed her unwittingly in the middle of twin political crises: a terrorist hijacking of an airplane and a Bangladesh military bloody coup d’état. The agonizing encounter with power-crazed terrorists permanently changed her attitude about terror, trust, and life.

She had nearly hypnotized herself into suppressing the fear of that horrific week forty years ago until old wounds were opened with each news account of recent, rampant terrorist attacks and the fear it instills in all of us.  She wrote Highjacked

to shed light on the existence of sadistic humans who terrorize, and to demonstrate how Americans must first recognize their own hatred in order to work towards promoting peace.

Carole recently co-wrote and starred in a short film “The Falling Leaves” that premiered in July at the La Jolla Film Festival.
