Muriel Lindsay | 05/06/18 | mind/body/spirit
Muriel Lindsay lives on a barrier island off the coast of Georgia having moved there 15 years ago for the specific purpose of connecting with the dolphins who live in the surrounding waters. She moved there to find a way to answer to an inner knowing she has carried her whole life. The knowing is that there is something she is supposed to come to understand and then share about the human/dolphin/whale connection. In that spirit of investigation, she has spent 15 years doing what she calls “participatory research” which basically amounts to just hanging out with dolphins on their terms, in the wild, both in and on the water, while opening all of her mental, emotional, physical and spiritual channels. She is affectionately known on the island as “the dolphin whisperer” based on her connections with the dolphins there.
In 2014, her work reached a pinnacle in the publishing of “The Dolphin Letters, Vital Information from Sea to Land”, a collection of 33 letters from dolphins to the human race. She says of this particular book, she was born to bring it through at this particular time on our changing planet. Everything she has done previously in her life led to this sharing.
In 2007, she published “The Chronicles of the Savannah River Dolphins” sharing about five years of experiences with her “teachers” and friends, the dolphins. In 2000 she published a fictional account entitled “Talking to Hurricanes” about the consciousness of weather. In 1980 she wrote and privately distributed “Dancers Over The Chasm” about the kind of individual who knows how to handle transformation the best.
Prior to moving to her current home on Tybee Island Muriel was a teacher/healer who traveled the world to gather knowledge from many ancient grounds that would assist her with what she is currently doing. She has been able to spend time with dolphins in the wild literally all over the world since they inhabit every ocean.
She received her Bachelor’s Degree from Agnes Scott College majoring in philosophy and got a Master’s Degree in Social Work at the University of Georgia.

Robert A. Nagourney | 05/06/18 | mind/body/spirit
Robert A. Nagourney, MD, is the medical and laboratory director at Rational Therapeutics, Inc., in Long Beach, California, and a clinical professor of gynecologic oncology at the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine. He is board certified in internal medicine, medical oncology and hematology.
Dr. Nagourney received his undergraduate degree in chemistry from Boston University and his doctorate of medicine at McGill University in Montreal, where he was a University Scholar. After a residency in internal medicine at the University of California, Irvine, he went on to complete fellowship training in medical oncology at Georgetown University, as well as in hematology at the Scripps Institute in La Jolla.
During his medical oncology fellowship at Georgetown University, Dr. Nagourney confronted aggressive malignancies for0 which the standard therapies remained highly unsatisfactory. Responding to an unmet need, he pioneered the development of “personalized cancer therapy,” applying a laboratory platform to match patients to therapies based on their unique response profiles.
As the founder of Rational Therapeutics, Dr. Nagourney has led in the development of “functional profiling” in human tumors. Using human tumor microspheroids isolated directly from surgical specimens, this platform known as the Ex Vivo Analysis of Programmed Cell Death (EVA-PCD®) measures drug-induced programmed cell death. The EVA-PCD has been shown to be a robust method for the prediction of clinical response to therapy.
With more than twenty years experience in this field, Dr. Nagourney has authored numerous manuscripts, book chapters, and abstracts. As a co-investigator on national cooperative trials, he introduced the use of platinum/gemcitabine doublets in the management of advanced ovarian and breast cancers, treatments that today are used around the world.
Dr. Nagourney resides in Long Beach, California with his wife and two sons.
