Funzing Talks: How Addiction Works
March 5 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm£12
Venue: Trapeze, Shoreditch
Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.
Which one of you is addicted? Your Mind, Body or Your Soul?
Did you know that we are not simply a mind and body? We are in fact three entities: A subconscious mind, a body and a conscious self.
And if you didn’t know this already – why this is possibly the most important discovery you will ever make?
Because anytime our subconscious mind registers pleasure in using a substance or participating in an activity – it immediately places it in the same part of the brain as lives our need for food and water i.e. things we need for our survival. It really is that serious.
Your mind informs your body of this urgent and imperative want and need; which drives the body to hunger. Although this is a false hunger, it’s one that cannot be ignored. And so you will do ANYTHING to get that substance or experience that activity. You now have an addiction. Because if you don’t fully co-operate, your mind and body will conspire to do everything in their power to ensure you do.
So that’s your mind and body busy with all of this – but where does that leave YOU? You consciously, you as an individual, a soul, spirit, your character, you here, experiencing life, who you are – whatever you want to call it – you are separate to your subconscious mind and body.
Where do YOU fit in when your mind and body become addicted?
Where do YOU fit in when your mind flatly refuses all ideas about life-change; and works overtime to keep you within your comfort zone?
Chris Hill has developed a very simple model to explain how life is actually set up. How your mind, body and conscious self, communicate with each other and how to use this to your advantage.
During this talk, he will share this learning with you as well as the solution to how to effect change in your life; be it leaving behind an addiction or escaping your comfort zone or any other life change that you may be fearful of. Once you understand this model – it will all become a very simple process to achieve success.
