Michael Mendizza is the Founder & Director of Touch the Future. He is an author, educator, documentary filmmaker and founder of Touch the Future, a nonprofit learning design center dedicated to Continuing Parent+Child Development – www.ttfuture.org.
He is the author of two books: Magical Parent-Magical Child, co-authored with Joseph Chilton Pearce, and Flowering, a collection of dramatic floral images and quotes by Krishnamurti. A third book being developed, Kids Are NOT The Problem and a feature documentary, YOU (are not who you think you are).
Inspiration for this work emerged from personal relationships with Pearce, physicist David Bohm, philosopher J. Krishnamurti, and over one hundred scientists, authors and educators. If being in an optimum state is important to professional athletes, imagine what how being in the same Zone would transform parenting, childcare providers, educators, coaches and the children they love.
