Saybrook University to Sponsor Chip Conley “Emotional Equations” Book Signing Events

Posted on: January 5, 2012

San Francisco, CA, January 5, 2012 – Saybrook University announced today that it is sponsoring signing events for Chip Conley’s new book, “Emotional Equations” (January 10, Free Press). In the book, Conley, dynamic entrepreneur and author of the bestselling “Peak”, has developed a new lexicon for an emotionally intelligent age by introducing brilliantly simple formulas to help us explore and articulate something that challenges and connects us all: our emotions. Illustrating how to gain greater perspective and create the perfect equation for any situation, equations like “Joy = Love – Fear” and “Despair = Suffering – Meaning” have been reviewed for mathematical and psychological accuracy by leading experts. Conley shows us how to solve these equations (and how to formulate our own) through life examples and stories of inspiring people and role models who worked them through in their own lives.

The three Saybrook University sponsored events will be held in:

  • San Francisco  January 11
  • Los Angeles     January 25
  • New York        February 23

In addition to the above events, Chip Conley will be the keynote speaker at Saybrook University’s residential conference on January 14, 2012. This conference brings together faculty and students from Saybrook’s Graduate Colleges of Psychology and Humanistic Studies and Mind-Body Medicine for intensive classes and workshops in multiple disciplines. Chip Conley will also be the keynote speaker at Saybrook University’s LIOS Graduate College (Leadership Institute of Seattle) graduation on June 18, 2012 in Seattle, Washington.

Chip Conley currently serves as Saybrook University’s scholar practitioner in residence and is the inaugural individual to be honored with this appointment. He was chosen for this honor because he is a socially conscious entrepreneur who is introducing a new generation to the work of Abraham Maslow, one of the thought leaders in the humanistic tradition and one of the humanistic psychologists whose work was instrumental in Saybrook’s founding. “Emotional Equations” is his most recent accomplishment using scholarly research to implement creative, practical applications to make a difference and foster positive change. Saybrook University also awarded Chip Conley an honorary doctorate of humane letters in 2009 in recognition of his contribution in developing new ideas and practices in disciplines that embrace Saybrook values and principles.

Located in San Francisco, California and Seattle, Washington, with students and graduates from across the United States and around the world, Saybrook University provides humanistic values-based graduate education to nurture and professionally train and develop humanistic action-oriented scholar-practitioners.
