Shefali Tsabary, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist with a private practice in New York and received her doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Columbia University. Oprah has hailed Dr. Shefali’s work as “revolutionary.” A NYT bestselling author of two groundbreaking books on parenting, namely, The Conscious Parent and The Awakened Family, she is spearheading a movement towards Inner Disarmament.

It is this blend of East and West that allows her to reach a global audience, and establishes her as one-of-a-kind in the field of mindfulness psychology.

Event Details

What exactly makes this event so unique and amazing? GREAT question.

The Summit of Greatness was conceived in Lewis Howes’ brain as the ultimate experience for fans of his podcast, book, and work - the quest to become the best version of yourself and serve the world with your greatness. He wanted to bring his followers and his inspirations into the same space to create together. This event is designed to not only teach, inspire, and empower the guests, but to let them come together with people who are on the same journey and lift each other up.

THAT’S what this Summit offers - come join us!

To be with people where it is the "cool" thing to be positive and seek self improvement was very refreshing.....if only more people had that same approach to life our world would be a much better place.

#summitofgreatness is the start of a great movement and message that we need to keep spreading and building upon! Show less

I felt it on Saturday night. Even though I didn't reach out to many of you, I found nothing but enthusiasm and kindness when I did. I've got a long way to go in my personal development, but at least I know where home is.

It has been an extraordinary few days for me and I finally have a moment to reflect on the Summit of Greatness.It has been an extraordinary few days for me and I finally have a moment to reflect on the Summit of Greatness.
The people of Ohio have the BIGGEST hearts & I loved having a home away from home. Some people were a little puzzled as to why I was in Ohio but I was more than happy to share why. One of my drivers said "This Lewis Howes must be pretty special if you travelled all the way from Australia for his conference". But before I could utter a word I heard her say "Girl! Your smile just said it all. I need to attend his school"
So to Lewis Howes, the Summit team and the phenomenal speakers my deepest thanks. As I write this my heart continues to sing

In a space of a few days I had the privilege to meet so many extraordinary individuals. Each and every one of you is a beacon of light and it was an incredible honour to have shared this EPIC moment with you all. My family has gotten bigger

I used to struggle with seeing myself as great but the Summit opened my eyes and heart. My understanding of being great is:
The power that a smile has to inspire.
A heart which beats so passionately that the world is a much better place. A fire within which gives us courage to face fears. Being vulnerable. To love deeply, laugh often and live a life of gratitude. Wherever you are on your journey to greatness know you will always have a friend in me, supporting you and cheering you on. I'm always happy for a chat
If you're ever in Melbourne let me know. I'd be more than happy to show you around.
Wishing you all much love & happiness. Show less

I'm just now heading home to Arizona from Ohio and have finally had the chance to reflect on this past weekend.I'm just now heading home to Arizona from Ohio and have finally had the chance to reflect on this past weekend. Something has been nagging at me for days that I couldn't quite put into words; but it finally hit me and I want to share it with you all...
Lewis finishes every single podcast interview by asking 'what's your definition of Greatness?' I have heard him ask that question hundreds of times, and I have listened to every single response he gets. I have contemplated over and over in my own mind how I would answer that question but have not yet been able to get there. I know what Greatness feels like, but I have not been able to figure out how I would put it into words. I finally figured it out.
We tap into our Greatness when we allow ourselves to be led by the fire that burns within us, rather than allowing ourselves to be minimized and controlled by the darkness that surrounds us. Greatness is about connecting with others through love and possibility, rather than pain and fear. We live in a world where our learned behavior is to constantly search for comfort and safety. We are surrounded by people who are stuck in a viscous cycle of believing that tearing others down is the only way they can truly lift themselves up. A world where the majority relates to each other through pain. What we all just experienced was a group of people who brought out the best in each other. Just by showing up, we collectively raised our standards of ourselves and of each other. I felt it with every conversation I had. So I just want to thank each of you for showing up, for raising the bar, thank you for every time you stepped outside of your comfort zone. That is where the magic happens.
This event was the very essence of Greatness. To me, Greatness is when we connect to the deepest part of ourselves that wants to make an impact in this world no matter how big or small, and we allow ourselves to be moved by it in spite of the comfort and safety that our egos are constantly searching for.
And I write this so I can anchor this for myself but also as a nudge to those of you who are worried about losing the momentum of this past weekend - Keep the bar raised. Don't lower your standards to fit into a world that may not be working for you. Don't minimize yourself for the sake of someone else's comfort. Every moment that we allow ourselves to be led by our own greatness, we hold the space open for others to find the greatness within them.
I am so grateful for you Lewis. There are no words to describe the amount of courage it takes for a person to show up in this world the way you do. You have shared your story with the world, and continue to do so. But only you truly know what it took to get here. I just want to acknowledge you for that. Through you we are able to tap into a level of greatness within ourselves that most people only dream about. Thank you for creating and holding that space for us.
I love you guys. Keep the momentum going. Finish the year strong. We've got this. Take a stand for your Greatness. Show less

About The Host

Before LEWIS HOWES became a media sensation for empowering people and sharing 'Greatness' across the globe, he had his share of obstacles to overcome. From having a learning disability, which led to being alone and bullied in school, to being sexually abused as a child, to being injured and broke on his sister’s couch, Lewis’s story is the perfect example of how anybody can overcome the obstacles in their life and achieve greatness. Fast forward a few short years, and Lewis is a New York Times Bestselling author of the hit book, The School of Greatness and author of his latest book, The Mask of Masculinity. He is a lifestyle entrepreneur, high performance business coach and keynote speaker. A former professional football player and two-sport All-American, he is a current USA Men’s National Handball Team athlete. He hosts a top 100 podcast in the world, The School of Greatness, which has over 40 million downloads since it launched in 2013. He was recognized by The White House and President Obama as one of the top 100 entrepreneurs in the country under 30.

Lewis has been featured on Ellen, The New York Times, People, Forbes, Inc, Fast Company, ESPN, Sports Illustrated, Men’s Health, The Today Show and other major media outlets.
