Gabor Mate will speak on 'BEYOND THE HUNGRY GHOST IN POLITICS: How Self-Awareness Within Supports Progress Without'

"Gabor Mate's connections-between the intensely personal and the global, the spiritual and the medical, the psychological and the political-are bold, wise and deeply moral. He is a healer to be cherished..." -Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine.

Dr. Gabor Mate is the best-selling author of 4 books, including:
* In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts: Close Encounters with Addiction
* When the Body Says No: Exploring the Stress-Disease Connection
* Scattered: How Attention Deficit Disorder Originates and What You Can Do About It
* Hold on to Your Kids: Why Parents Need to Matter More than Peers

For two decades Dr. Mate ran a popular family practice in East Vancouver. For seven years he also served as Medical Coordinator of the Palliative Care Unit at Vancouver Hospital, caring for the terminally ill. More recently he worked for twelve years in Vancouver's notorious Downtown Eastside neighborhood with patients suffering from hardcore drug addiction, mental illness, and HIV.

In the 1990's Dr. Mate was a regular medical columnist for the Vancouver Sun, and Globe and Mail newspapers. His four books have all been Canadian bestsellers, and have been published in nearly twenty languages on five continents. In 2009 Dr. Mate received an Outstanding Alumnus Award from Simon Fraser University, and has recently been appointed Adjunct Professor in SFU's School of Criminology. In 2011 he received an Honorary Degree from the University of Northern British Columbia.

Dr. Mate maintains a busy international touring/speaking schedule year-round. He lives in Vancouver with Rae, his wife of 43 years. They have 3 adult children.
