Lori and Chris are veteran marriage and family therapists who have been helping couples and relationships for many years. They were both students of Sydney Banks and they have written a new book that was inspired by a tape he made called "Thought and Marriage." Their book is called "The Secret of Love, Understand the Mystery, Unleash the Magic." They will share their insights about how understanding the Three Principles can help anyone get their relationship back on track and even help create the relationship of your dreams.
Lori CarpenosLori Carpenos completed a yearlong post-graduate internship in Innate Health and the 3 Principles, in 1985, in Coral Gables, FL. She later received a marriage and family therapy license (LMFT) in order to help others discover their innate health.
"I can’t imagine that any other work could be as enjoyable. I watch people transform from having a simple insight to having an understanding of the nature of human experience. I witness the effects of a simple understanding about how thought works. I also witness the remarkably positive effect that this understanding has on a relationship."
Lori completed another year-long training with Dr. Pransky and Associates, in 1994, with the thought that she could help impart this understanding to the business world. She has maintained a private practice as a therapist, consultant, facilitator, and writer, ever since.

Christine has been a trainer in work involving the Three Principles for over 30 years.

Judy SedgemanI’m Judy Sedgeman. My life’s passion for more than three decades has been awakening creativity, resiliency, and well-being in people through the understanding of the Principles of Mind, Thought and Consciousness, which are the foundations of our experience of Innate Health. I am a teacher, mentor and consultant in that work.
Currently, in addition to all the Three Principles work I do through Sedgeman Consulting, LLC, I also am an Initiative Consultant for The Patterson Foundation of Sarasota, FL, an organization whose values are very aligned with 3P work. My project is a transformational evolution for curriculum at The Ringling College of Art & Design.
I served as the Director of the Institute for Public Policy and Leadership (IPPL) at USF Sarasota-Manatee for two years, departing that position in January 2012 to devote myself more to global outreach in Innate Health through my own consulting practice.
Before that, I spent nearly 12 years on the faculty of the West Virginia University School of Medicine, where I was Director of an Institute dedicated to Innate Health, and where I developed and taught courses for the Master’s Program in Public Health. I’m still an Adjunct Professor at WVU, teaching two graduate courses online, both focused on resiliency and mental well-being, as well as a Continuing Education course about Resiliency through WVU Extended Learning. My passion is service to others focused on eliminating stress and accessing wisdom and resiliency.
