“It would be interesting to know how to measure it, this (viral) energy. To test it scientifically would be really fun, because it is almost mystical. I’m with you all the way. I certainly support what you are doing, it’s going to make a great impact.” —Dr. David D. Burns, M.D., Adjunct Professor Emeritus in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University School of Medicine and the author of the bestselling books Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy and The Feeling Good Handbook
“Penelope is dedicating her full attention to what is becoming the M.O.V.E. movement: Many scientists and analysts have commented on the phenomenon of viral energy. We know that there is a home team advantage in sporting events. We know that we get good vibes or bad when walking into a meeting or even at a party. However until now, no author has focused on the Magic of Viral Energy as a technique for improving the quality of everyday life.” —Bill Gladstone, literary agent to Penelope Jean Hayes, Eckhart Tolle, and Neale Donald Walsch; author of the international bestseller The Twelve and co-author of The Golden Motorcycle Gang.
“It’s really an interesting concept—these infectious agents that you’re calling them. Maybe you’re a person who doesn’t have enough ‘Teflon’ (emotional armor), so things stick to you. Turn off media and social media at a certain point. I think social media can make it hard to have ‘Teflon’ these days because sometimes you can be constantly reminded of what is negative. I think there’s something to it, it’s like you get this virus, you get this infectious agent.” —Dr. Stephen Hinshaw, Ph.D., Chair of the Department of Psychology, University of California, Berkeley; Vice-Chair of Psychology, Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Francisco; Editor, Psychological Bulletin; author of The Triple Bind: Saving Our Teenage Girls from Today’s Pressures

Penelope wants you to live out your best day every day of your life.” —Erika Zapecza, Communications and Alumni Director, Onsite Workshops
“I could not agree with you more. Energy medicine is absolutely the future. There may always be a need for pharmaceuticals, probably, but I can’t say for sure.” —Dr. Bradley Nelson, bestselling author of The Emotion Code
“I applaud you so much for what you’re doing, and how much what you’re doing will help. I’m really glad that you’re doing this.

“It’s really interesting. We’re social creatures and we do give off energy and vibes. An event or influence can have a small effect and start to work on you in a positive or negative way. You probably don’t realize that you are starting to think differently, so it really is like you’re catching a silent factor that you might not be aware of.” —Dr. Gerald J. Haeffel, Department of Psychology, University of Notre Dame
