At eight years old, Abigail Berg made her writing debut as the co-creator of The Gift of Being Different. The book was conceived before she could even read or write. Inspired by her diagnosis of dyslexia, Abigail chose not to let dyslexia define her. Instead, with help from her mom, author Monica Berg, she would redefine what it means to be different not only for herself but for children all around the world. Since the book’s release, Abigail has been visiting schools all across the country with her Mom to share the powerful message of embracing the things that make us different. Inspired by an outing Abigail had one day with her babysitter, storytellers Abigail and Monica embarked on this book, exploring the idea that we’re all much more alike than we are different. With empathy, they model how to put ourselves in another’s shoes and prioritize kindness over being right. Abigail hopes that readers are inspired to greater kindness and empathy. The youngest of four siblings, Abigail lives in NYC with her parents, siblings, and her dog Miles.

Monica Berg is the author of Rethink Love, Fear is Not an Option, and The Gift of Being Different children’s book, as well as the co-host of the popular Spiritually Hungry podcast, a researcher of human habits that hold us back, and a Look Within-fluencer. She’s been called “The Marie Kondo of the Soul,” showing us how tidying up our inner mess can help us find the joy we’ve been seeking. Monica is a fresh voice that channels the powerful internal spark of Light living within us all. Authentic and fearless, she reminds us of our extraordinary potential and pushes us onward with compassion and understanding.
While informed by her many years of kabbalistic study, Monica also draws heavily on her own personal life experiences. She battled and overcame a debilitating eating disorder at a young age, and as a mother of four children, one of whom has special needs, she has become an outspoken advocate for him and others struggling to find their voice.
With her trademark blend of humor, insight, and honesty, she shows individuals how to create a life that feels like it is working, like it makes sense, and most importantly, a life in which they are living and loving as the powerful, fulfilled person they’ve always wanted to be. Her personal endeavors have taught her how the practical wisdom of Kabbalah can bring Light and strength into even the most challenging experiences by changing the one thing we can control: ourselves.
Monica Berg, a self-professed Change Junkie, shares her combination of wisdom and real-life awareness with talks found compelling to a wide range of men and women at different stages in their lives. She leads people to not only see how they can change (change is the only constant in life) but also inspires them to get excited about a lifestyle of change.
Most recently, Monica Berg launched a six-part master class entitled, RETHINK IT: Love, as the first piece of on-demand content to appear on, offering groundbreaking teachings, practical tools and takeaways, for anyone who’s in love, wants love or is looking to rekindle love.
Monica Berg serves as Co-Director for Kabbalah Centre International. She lives in New York with her husband Michael and their children David, Joshua, Miriam, and Abigail.
