Among them are Marshall Rosenberg, founder of Nonviolent Communication; Toltec master and author Don Miguel Ruiz, and his son Don José Ruiz; Robert Monroe, researcher into altered consciousness and founder of The Monroe Institute; Dr Stanislav Grofa psychiatrist with more than fifty years experience researching the healing and transformative potential of non-ordinary states of consciousness; Dr Deepak Chopra, author of "The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success", Marianne Willamson, Dr Bernie Siegeland many others.

   Olivier began his writing career at the age of 21 (his first book, which turned out to be a success, was on lucid dreaming). He is the author of 22 books, with translations in fifteen languages, including Modern Medicine: The New World Religion, (Personhood Press 2004), Are we already half-cooked? Seven Life-Enhancing Metaphors, (Dreamriver Press 2009) and The Five Agreements Game : a chivalry of relationships, (Findhorn Press 2014).

After having shared his Gift of Forgiveness workshop for ten years, to thousands of people, Olivier has now passed on the baton to the people he has trained who continue his action in various countries.
