He spearheaded the creation of Experience Corps, now one of America’s largest nonprofit national service programs engaging people over 55, and The Purpose Prize, which annually provides five $100,000 prizes to social innovators in the second half of life. Freedman was described by The New York Times as “the voice of aging baby boomers who are eschewing retirement for … meaningful and sustaining work later in life,” while The Wall Street Journal stated, “In the past decade, Mr. Freedman has emerged as a leading voice in discussions nationwide about the changing face of retirement.”

Weiner is author of the New York Times bestseller “The Geography of Bliss.” A longtime “spiritual voyeur,” he realizes that while he has been privy to a wide range of religious practices, he’s never seriously considered these concepts in his own life, but faced with his own mortality, he undertakes a worldwide exploration of religions in search of a personal understanding of the divine. His new book is, Man Seeks God: My Flirtations with the Divine. Napoli is journalist and author of Radio Shangri-La; What I learned in Bhutan, The Happiest Kingdom on Earth.
