Hospice of Santa Barbara (HSB)’s illuminate Speaker Series returns for 2022. HSB kicked off this year’s series on February 16, 2022.

The series continues with Amanda Kloots in April, Kristin Neff in June, Kelly McGonigal in August, Richard Louv in October and Trudy Goodman and Jack Kornfield in November.

“Throughout the pandemic, our illuminate Speaker Series has been a very important way for us to provide the community with hope during a time of transition,” said David Selberg, CEO of Hospice of Santa Barbara. “We are extremely grateful we get to continue the series and want to thank everyone for supporting it.”

Past speakers from 2020-2021 include Roshi Joan Halifax, Frank Ostaseski, Katy Butler, Sharon Salzberg, Dr. BJ Miller, Dr. Sunita Puri, Jenée Johnson, Daniel Goleman, Nora McInerny and Pico Iyer. To watch past illuminate speaker events, please visit https://bit.ly/3Jv4CrZ
