Self-help and Chiropractic advocate Dr. Wayne Dyer has passed away at age 75. His family posted the following status on Twitter shortly after 5pm ET on Sunday night:
For anyone in the wellness world, Wayne Dyer was a legend for his ambition and inspiration. As he once said, “There is no scarcity of opportunity to make a living at what you love; there’s only scarcity of resolve to make it happen.” (The Power Of Intention).
He backed up his positivity with book sales that made publishers take the self-help category seriously. (His first book Your Erroneous Zones sold over 35 million copies) and a career that lasted for four decades.
Dyer was also a real-life rags to riches character with an almost Dickensian personal story: he grew up in an orphanage, later reconnected with his birth parents, became a high school counselor, then a college professor, and then wrote his first of many bestselling books.
Dr. Gilles Lamarche remembers as, “One of my most influential mentors. I learned to think and feel differently through his teachings, and reading his tomes. He was a truly caring humanBEing. One of the great pleasures of my chiropractic career was adjusting him and his lady on a Sunday morning after a conference.”
I had the privilege of hiring him three times to speak at conferences, and spent one week with him on an Alaskan cruise. I so wanted to do another trip with him visiting the Holy Land. RIP my friend. You were and will continue to be a mentor to millions. Sincere condolences to his assistant of more than 30 years, Maya, and the entire Dyer family.
Dr. Brad Glowaki remembers Wayne with this picture: In Maui, at the Home of Wayne Dyer is where I had my best memories & unparalleled knowledge entrusted to me. In board shorts & barefoot he treated me as a dear friend. I filled a notebook as we sipped tea & this master shared during our annual trips. He was excited for heaven, he was not scared. He reminded me when I had a Coincidence, that’s the universe “co-in-citing” with my innate intelligence!
