We live in a time when we are overwhelmed with the magnitude of problems in the world, our homes and work. National media sources acknowledge Patricia Sun as one of the most extraordinary teachers of today. With audio tapes and workshops in over 38 countries, Patricia has shared her unique gift for effortlessly bringing deep insights that empower her audience. She has been a guest on national television and radio shows such as The Phil Donahue Show, New Dimensions, PBS, NPR and has spoken at top academic institutions like Stanford Medical School and U.C.L.A. Patricia Sun is the Director and founder of the Institute of Communication for Understanding, I.C.U.
In demand throughout the world as a private consultant, lecturer and communication expert, she has taught her interactive lectures, new philosophy and creative style of thinking to hundreds of thousands who have attended, as well as having influenced many prominent individuals in the human potential and spiritual movement over the last two decades. Patricia is a pioneer (in 1961 she was the first woman TV evening news anchor in the Western Hemisphere, XHJ, Mexico) and a warm, brilliant thinker. She is intellectually sharp and lucid at the same time that she is gentle and receptive. What Patricia has called the ‘New Style of Thinking’ is extraordinary in its power to depolarize people, and it has brought Ms. Sun worldwide invitations to share her views about topics ranging from family abuse, communication and the environment, to Soviet-American relations and world peace.
Patricia works with people from all walks of life desiring to improve their interpersonal relationships. Known as the teachers’ teacher, she has simply and clearly, often with humor, shared her practical philosophy during 27 years of lecturing and consulting with families, teachers, diplomats, celebrities, psychologists, C.E.O.s and organizations seeking a quantum leap in performance at all levels. Many hundreds of professionals in the human potential movement have been strongly influenced by Patricia’s material for much of their work. The range of the diverse groups and institutions she has spoken to encompasses churches, universities, the Golden Door, the FBI and the former USSR’s Soviet Women’s Committee.
Patricia Sun graduated Phi Beta Kappa at the top two percent of her class in 3-1/2 years from the University of California, Berkeley with two degrees, one in Social Sciences: Psychology and the other in Conservation and Natural Resources. She began her work as a family counselor. Her work today concentrates directly on creative solutions; ‘re-creating’ thought patterns and ‘re-perceiving’ experience. Profoundly explaining intimacy, dreams, E.S.P., creativity and learning, she is a pioneer in describing ‘right-brain’ thought. She explains the distinctions between right and left brain styles of thinking and how, for example, the two styles affect men and women in ways surprisingly different from how most people see the inherent differences between the sexes. These insights transform male/female communication and intimacy; as well as corporate and business communications and innovations. Patricia’s teaching can be used to expand consciousness and amplify perception in every aspect of human concern.
