Hollyhock Presenters

Our presenters are curated for their quality, depth, integrity, and alignment with our educational purpose. Since 1982, a distinguished faculty of authors, educators, activists, artists, performers, and practitioners have shared their work at our Cortes Island campus and in Vancouver.

Judith Ansara & Robert Gass

Judith Ansara, MSW, and Robert Gass, EdD, are well-known teachers who integrate rich backgrounds in spiritual practice, psychology, organizational change, social action and the arts. For four decades, they have brought their work to centers such as Hollyhock, Omega and Esalen, and organizations ranging from the Sierra Club to General Motors to the Obama White House. Gifted healers and guides, they bring to their work a depth of compassion and insight forged in the living laboratory of their 50+-year marriage and work with thousands of couples.
