This Funzing Experience:

Shaun Atwood shares the mind-blowing true story of how he survived Arizona’s deadliest jail – where guards as well as gang members were murdering inmates, the food sometimes included dead rats, and cockroaches crawled in his ears and mouth at nights. Reflective, philosophical, occasionally terrifying and darkly humorous, Shaun’s story puts life into perspective.

Shaun’s story will demonstrate to you the value of:

TAKING TIME FOR INTROSPECTION: the foundation for personal development is self-knowledge.

MAKING SLOW AND CAREFUL PROGRESS: shortcuts are tempting, but not worth the high price.

HELPING OTHERS: selfish behaviour strengthens the ego’s ability to sabotage our progress.

IDENTIFYING AND OVERCOMING NEGATIVE ADDICTIONS: unacknowledged addictions can creep out of control and devastate our lives.

LEARNING AND RISING FROM SETBACKS: setbacks provide invaluable lessons if examined thoroughly, and bring us closer to success.

CHERISHING LIFE AND THE SMALL THINGS: when we appreciate the miracle of life, we are grateful for what we have and we don’t go looking for excitement in the wrong places.

LEARNING A RELAXATION TECHNIQUE: the highest performers release stress using techniques such as meditation.

LETTING GO OF FEAR AND ANXIETY: most of the things we worry about – that inhibit personal and business growth – never actually happen.

Shaun Attwood is a former stock-market millionaire and Ecstasy distributer turned public speaker, author and activist, who is banned from America for life. His story was featured on National Geographic Channel as an episode of Banged Up/Locked Up Abroad broadcast to tens of millions of viewers in over 40 countries.

Venue: Number 177 Bar & Kitchen, Hoxton

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.
