This Funzing Experience:
Growing up in the infamous Children of God cult meant that group think and indoctrination were pressures that framed my generations way of thinking. Expectations to save the world, punishment if you held a different perspective and being ostracised from your community as real threat if you thought differently were the controlling mechanisms used to keep us in line.

I used to think my experience was unique. I realised that many people experience something on this continuum. Control, expectations, inflicted guilt, ostracisation, social norms and now, endless noise and opinion through friends and media on how you should live your life.

This talk will help you see through the noise so you can be your authentic self. When we are true to ourselves our connections are deeper, our direction is clearer and we live happier and healthier lives. When we avoid and hide, anxiety and depression increase as we bounce around everyone else's idea of who we should be and allow society to dictate our path.

My clients come to me desperately dissatisfied as they compare their insides to other people's outsides in a desperate fog of not being enough based on society's standards. Join me for this talk on how to see through the noise and think for yourself!


Venue: TT Liquor, Shoreditch

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.


*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
