Michael Eselun, UCLA oncology chaplain and popular guest speaker, will explore those liminal spaces in which we sometimes find ourselves on life’s mysterious journey—thresholds that are neither one reality or another, and yet may open a path to our deepest truths.  Possibly even the sacred.

Michael Eselun, serves as the chaplain for the Simms/Mann‐UCLA Center for Integrative Oncology.  Two-time TED-X speaker, Michael speaks extensively to healthcare professionals, patient populations, and faith communities across the country.  Long serving as adjunct faculty at the Wiesenthal Center/Museum of Tolerance, he’s also worked as an activist/educator addressing anti-LGBTQ bias in the larger community for well over 30 years.  Michael was recently inducted into the UCLA-Semel Institute Eudaimonia Society, in recognition of having lived a meaning-driven life.  He has 4 volumes of CD’s available for purchase.
