Laura Bakosh, Ph.D. on Mindfulness Practices & Resiliency for Children, and more

Laura Bakosh is a mindfulness teacher, researcher and co-founder of Inner Explorer, a non-profit organization that brings mindfulness-based social emotional learning (MBSEL) programming to preschool through high school classrooms. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Boston College, a PhD from Sofia University, was trained as a Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) instructor through the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts, and recently received an Allstate Foundation Fellowship. 

She has practiced and studied mindfulness for 27 years. She began teaching the skills to children 13 years ago and quickly realized that it was difficult for children to commit to a daily practice at home, and was difficult for many teachers to lead such practices in the classroom.  This was the foundational insight that led to the development of Inner Explorer, an audio-guided program that made it easy for teachers and students (and families) to practice together each day. 

Similar to how daily teeth-brushing promotes dental health, daily mindfulness practice promotes mental health! Laura has collaborated on multiple scientific studies evaluating the impact of daily mindfulness practice on student and teacher outcomes, showing participants experience 43% less stress and anxiety, 15% higher grades, and 60% better emotional regulation and behavior. Laura believes that daily mindfulness practice is the most important education equity and social justice initiative of our time as it can help to close the achievement gap, break the cycle of poverty and improve wellbeing.

Kirk Parsley, M.D. — Former Navy SEAL, Physician to the SEALs, and Sleep Optimization Expert (#68)

Dr. Kirk Parsley(@docparsley) served as an Undersea Medical Officer at Naval Special Warfare Group One from June 2009 to January 2013. While there, he led the development and supervised the group’s first Sports Medicine Rehabilitation center. He is a former SEAL, and received his Medical Degree from Bethesda, Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences (USUHS) in 2004. He interned in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Balboa Naval Hospital San Diego in 2005 and subsequently completed a Navy residency in Hyperbarics and Diving Medicine in 2006.

Doctor Parsley has been a member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine since 2006 and served as Naval Special Warfare’s expert on Sleep Medicine. In addition he is certified in hormonal modulation (Age-Management Medicine). After leaving the Navy he went into concierge medicine and consulting. He continues to consult for multiple corporations, and professional athletes/teams. Doctor Parsley lectures worldwide on sleep, wellness, and hormonal optimization and is currently completing a book on sleep.


His philosophy for wellness is simple; in order to optimize our health and get the most out of our bodies and minds, we must live more closely to the way we evolved as a species. He believes that many diseases and disorders that we accept as “inevitable” in modern society are unnecessary complications of poor sleeping habits, living in a toxic environment, eating foods we were not designed to digest, and allowing stress to overwhelm us. His passion is to help his patients and clients achieve the highest quality of life possible, and realize their health, performance, and longevity goals.Dr. Parsley spends as much of his spare time as possible with his three beautiful children (Hayden, Cole, and Harper). He has been a competitive athlete his entire life, and enjoys nearly all outdoor activities and sports.
