Dawson Church, PhD, is an award-winning science writer with three best-selling books to his credit. The Genie in Your Genes (YourGeniusGene.com) was the first book to demonstrate that emotions drive gene expression. Mind to Matter, (MindToMatter.com) showed that the brain creates much of what we think of as “objective reality.” Bliss Brain (BlissBrain.com) demonstrates that peak mental states rapidly remodel the brain for happiness.

Its largest program, the Veterans Stress Project, has offered free treatment to over 21,000 veterans with PTSD over the past decade and he has twice been invited to testify before US Congressional committees on his work.
