Author Gregg Kirk will discuss his journey to recover from chronic Lyme disease and the lessons it taught him, as he signs his book “Gratitude Curve-Using the lessons of chronic illness to reach personal empowerment,” the story of his healing from chronic Lyme disease. In 2011, Kirk launched a number of efforts to help others who are suffering from the disease, physically, financially and spiritually. In addition to signing books, he will offer healing sessions, and answer questions about his experience via natural and mystical healing methods, including his visits to the world-famous healer John of God in Abadiania, Brazil.
“Chronic disease was a forest fire that burned my life to the ground. Once I stopped fighting the fire and let it burn away the things I had once thought valuable, I began to learn from it and accept where I was. The empty spaces gave me room for new growth and my life moved in a different direction,” said Kirk.

Kirk spent five years at the Delaware beaches writing for several local publications. He then co-founded Big Shout Magazine, a monthly entertainment tabloid, and created Delaware Valley Music Poll Awards, and the Taste of Wilmington Festival. He then began creating and managing digital content for the News Journal. He has been a professional recording artist since the ’80s, with three musical releases that are influenced by his healing experience. In 2012, Kirk created the Ticked Off Music Fest to become the only ongoing music series solely focused on Lyme disease education, awareness and fundraising. Its focus is to go to areas where the rate of infection is high but awareness is low. In 2017, Kirk created and launched LymeKnowledge.com, an easy-to-understand web resource to help broadcast the most accurate and up-to-date information on Lyme prevention, symptoms, diagnosis and treatments.
