Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
We are beginning with Dr. Wayne Dyer mostly because he is a person that we started reading years ago when for us he was an unknown person. He is around the same age as we are and we have watched him grow and change spiritually in his books. But we still find his early writing very significant for readers today depending on where you are in your own spiritual growth! We hope you will enjoy reading about him and it will perhaps inspire you to find him on his web site!
WAYNE W. DYER is an internationally renowned author and speaker in the fields of self-development and spiritual growth. He’s the author of over 40 books, including 20 New York Times bestsellers. He has created many audio and video programs, and has appeared on thousands of television and radio shows. He also has 10 PBS Specials which have raised over $250 million dollars for public television.
His books Manifest Your Destiny, Wisdom of the Ages, There’s a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem, and the New York Times bestsellers 10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace, The Power of Intention, Inspiration, Change Your Thoughts—Change Your Life, Excuses Begone!, Wishes Fulfilled, and I Can See Clearly Now have all been featured as National Public Television specials.
Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Dyer holds a doctorate in educational counseling from Wayne State University and served as an associate professor at St. John’s University in New York. Through his early work in college teaching and clinical psychology, he discovered the need to make the principles of self-discovery and personal growth available to a wider audience. His first book for general readers, Your Erroneous Zones, published in 1976, became an international bestseller and launched his career as an author and speaker.
After publishing a string of best-selling books on the practical psychology of self-improvement, Dr. Dyer says he felt a shift occurring in his thinking that led him to explore the spiritual aspects of human experience. “My purpose is to help people look at themselves and begin to shift their concepts. Remember, we are not our country, our race, or religion. We are eternal spirits. Seeing ourselves as spiritual beings without label is a way to transform the world and reach a sacred place for all of humanity,” he says.
Dr. Wayne Dyer is affectionately called the “father of motivation” by his fans. Despite his childhood spent in orphanages and foster homes, Dr. Dyer has overcome many obstacles to make his dreams come true. Today he spends much of his time showing others how to do the same. His main message is that it is possible for every person to live an extraordinary life. What’s more, it is possible for every person to manifest their deepest desires — if they honor their inner divinity and consciously choose to live from their “Highest Self.”
When he’s not traveling the globe delivering his uplifting words, Dr. Dyer is writing from his home in Maui—enjoying the beauty of nature, his swims with the sea creatures, and happy visits from his children and grandchildren.
