Featured iRest Level 2 Teacher-in-Training: Michael Sapiro, PsyD

My belief is that we are the container in which great adventures happen.  That the unfolding of our greatest human potential occurs in our vast and spacious inner space.

"Into the Inner Wild Yonder: Lessons on Human Potential and Transformation" is my latest presentation to the Idaho Air National Guard's 124th Fighter Wing after a return from a 6 month combat deployment to Turkey.   I talk about Edgar Mitchell returning from the moon, Felix Baumgartner free falling from the stratosphere, and my grandparents emergence from trauma to inspire a roomful of 300 airmen and women to live up to their unlimited human potential.
