We are awaiting our 501C3 status, but are already working on a handful of projects that will bring greater knowledge and depth into Edie’s work. Please feel free to help us achieve our goal of bringing Edie’s message to the world, and sign up for our newsletter on the site!

In association with Soul Search, Dr. Eger and her grandson, Jordan Engle co-host this 10 module course titled, “Unlocking Your Potential, with Dr. Edith Eva Eger.” The course will be fully available this summer. Pre-registration is open now on the Soul Search website.

I am Dr. Edith Eva Eger. Since my childhood days in Hungary, friends and family have called me Edie. We lived a ‘normal life’, a happy life, uneventful in its quiet bliss. Then it was slowly, yet suddenly, all taken away, altering the course of my life forever.

I have helped countless others lead full lives by moving beyond their problems –no matter how insurmountable they believed them to be.

Though I could have remained a permanent victim –scarred  by what was beyond my control– I made the choice to heal. Early on, I realized that true freedom can only be found by forgiving, letting go, and moving on. So I turned my life around and vigorously pursued a career in psychology. Combining my formal education and my own life challenges, I have helped countless others lead full lives by moving beyond their problems –no matter how insurmountable they believed them to be.  This is my life’s mission and I will forever strive to help people make the choice to heal and thrive. That’s a promise!
