A Message from George Cappannelli

As a sculptor, I seek to rediscover the purity and honesty of art carved and modeled by hand. And while I am grateful when my work receives attention and is deemed to have value, what is of paramount importance to me, is that I listen to the call of my heart and remain true to the  promptings of my soul. In this way, I occasionally have the privilege of touching beauty, easing back the curtain a little on the human mystery, and when I am particularly fortunate, catching a glimpse of the sacred.

I believe creativity is my birthright and yours and also our responsibility. For creativity and our capacity to love, from my perspective, constitute the best and highest use of our gifts and time here on this physical plane. (www,artbygeorgecappannelli.com)

Over the years, I have also pursued my love of words, as well as my work in film and television and my consulting and coaching that I have been privileged to do with a number of leading organizations in both the private and public sectors supporting them in developing vision-driven, values-based organizations. I have co-authored 5 books with my wife, Sedena.  Say Yes to Change, Authenticity, The Best Is Yet To Be, Getting Unstuck and Do Not Quietly which received 9 national book awards, including a Gold Nautilus Award.    I have also written the Old Stones & Promises trilogy, another novel entitled Life After Life After…, The Merlin Manuscript, and several non-fiction books; A Man Is, The Power of One, It’s About Time and Timelessness, and I am currently working on a new book, The Art of Living At the End of Time. 

I have received two Regional Emmy Awards for theatrical and musical series I produced and directed for television, and in 2019/2020, co-produced and directed the Telly Award Winning Ageless Living Television Series with my wife, Sedena.  The series is now airing on 60 PBS stations across the country. www.AgelessLivingSeries.com/authors. In January 2021, I co-produced, wrote and directed a 2 hour pre-inaugural, Telly Award Winning, live-stream special, Touching The Heart and Healing The Soul of America Special that aired in 80 countries one day before the Biden-Harris Inauguration.

In my coaching and consulting work, I have served a wide range of clients including: Accenture, Boeing, PepsiCo, Sun Microsystems, NASA, Disney, The L.A. Times, The US Navy and many more.  (www.GeorgeCappannelli.com)
