Emmy award-winning actress Lindsay Wagner captured the hearts of audiences around the world when she broke the mold for women on television with her iconic portrayal of The Bionic Woman. She has since starred in over 60 films, mini-series and specials that were also groundbreaking, socially relevant and often poignant. Lindsay made a conscious and courageous decision in the turbulent ’70s to use her stature in the film industry to champion many causes that were receiving little media attention. Forgoing a number of feature film offers she chose to use her significant clout and notoriety to make many – often controversial – movies that were aired on television, and that served to educate her audiences and open the door for those who were then empowered to follow her lead. Ms. Wagner is often referred to as the “Queen of T.V. Movies” and her films and docu-dramas have covered subjects such as: the struggle between naturopathic & allopathic healthcare, the moral dilemma of capital punishment, child sexual abuse, root complexities of terrorism, domestic violence, revisionist history and the emotional impact of breast cancer.
Offscreen, with her passion for awakening human potential, Lindsay facilitates retreats, “Quiet the Mind & Open the Heart” developed out of her personal journey and a lifetime of studying both eastern and western modalities. Although many may attend hoping to have their LW lunchboxes and action dolls autographed, all leave having experienced something of the sublime and with engaging tools to continue their personal spiritual journeys, as well as, greater awareness of what social responsibility entails in our current “turbulent time”.
