The Hendricks, who are pioneers in the fields of body intelligence and relationship transformation for more than 40 years, will discuss Improving Your Relationships Consciously.

Together and singly the Hendricks have written more than 40 books, including such bestsellers as Conscious Loving, The Big Leap, and Conscious Loving Ever After: How to Create Thriving Relationships at Midlife and Beyond.

They have appeared on Oprah Winfrey, 48 Hours, and more than 500 TV and radio shows internationally.

Elisa Rose, inspirational singer-songwriter, will be the event's featured musical artist. Rose beckons listeners into her inner landscape with tenderness and a sultry voice. Her style merges pop, folk and electronica with lyrical phrasing and melodic hooks.

Forrest Leichtberg, executive producer of the Conscious Networking events, will be the evening's emcee.

Leichtberg recently was honored with a proclamation from Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider, on behalf of the City Council for his work with the Consciousness Network.

“I am honored to present Gay and Katie Hendricks at this event," Leichtberg said.

"They are respected by many around the world and we are fortunate to have the opportunity to experience them in Santa Barbara, California,” he said.

There will be vendors at the event offering products and services (including organic food) to attendees. In this way, the Consciousness Network connects the area’s conscious organizations and skilled practitioners with the community they serve.

The social and networking hour with vendors begins at 6 p.m.

The event is sponsored by DeDominic & Associates, a business consulting organization spearheaded by Patty DeDominic, who was recognized with the U.S. President’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2015.

Event entry is $30 at door. Advance tickets can be purchased at Space is limited, so advance reservations are recommended. Livestream access can be found at

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
