We are not our bodies, our possessions, or our careers. Who we are is Divine love, and that is infinite."
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, 1940-2015
Farewell to the first self-help guru
It is with heavy hearts that we at Gaiam TV say goodbye in this physical plane to renowned speaker, healer, and spiritual teacher Dr. Wayne W. Dyer. He passed away at his home in Maui, Hawaii on Saturday, August 29. While the cause of death has not officially been released, Dyer was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia in 2009, which he said he treated with positive thinking, daily exercise and meditation, and a surgery performed remotely via the psychic senses by John of God in Brazil.
About Wayne Dyer
Beginning his career in 1976 with the publication of his first book Your Erroneous Zones, it sold over 36 million copies and became an international bestseller. Dyer peddled the publication himself, selling it out of his car to local area bookstores and newsstands and volunteering for radio show interviews and speaking engagements before public relations and marketing firms were the way to go.
An avid speaker on PBS, he raised over $100 million for public broadcasting with his seminars designed to help people help themselves. Several of his books, including Manifest Your Destiny, Wisdom of the Ages, There’s a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem, 10 Secrets for Inner Peace, The Power of Intention, and Wishes Fulfilled are just some of the shift-provoking topics he wrote, and then spoke about, on PBS.
Dyer held a doctorate in educational counseling from Wayne State University and also served as associate professor at St. John’s University in New York. His innate passion to bring wisdom and personal growth to the masses catapulted him into the spiritual space because he set his intentions on a higher purpose.
We are eternal spirits. Seeing ourselves as spiritual beings without label is a way to transform the world and reach a sacred place for all of humanity.
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer
