Dr. Anna Yusim is a Stanford- and Yale-trained psychiatrist, keynote speaker, and best-selling author of Fulfilled: How the Science of Spirituality Can Help You Live a Happier, More Meaningful Life. She has a psychiatry practice in Manhattan where she has helped over one thousand patients. After working as a neurobiology researcher with Dr. Robert Sapolsky and completing her medical training, Dr. Yusim felt that something was missing from her life.

She lives in Manhattan with her husband.
“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
- MARCUS AURELIUS
