The really interesting book and club

I am working on a really interesting book which should be published in 2023.

Join the club

I am also planning to organise free social events where you can meet really interesting people online at least once a week. These will be for people who are interested in discussing subjects like philosophy, psychology, history, science and culture.

Here is a list of deep questions we will be discussing.

In addition, we will be putting together some unique resources that may be of interest to members.

One of our projects is a plan to put together a very useful and detailed yet free set of online personal development resources.

Not everyone can afford a good therapist or cope with having to wait for help during a crisis. But wouldn’t it be great if there were some genuinely useful free resources on the web that could provide real hope? My dream is to create the kind of articles, podcasts or videos that change lives and help lead people away from despair.

The problem with many existing internet resources is that they are largely insufficient in scope and written with marketing in mind, often by someone who wants you to pay for some product or service. We need free, well-researched and lovingly written, healing resources which can soothe distress and provide much-needed guidance.

Welcome to my little corner of the internet. My name is John and my vision is to provide free, high quality “psychoeducation”, the kind of broad knowledge that gives us an understanding of how life works, what struggles we are likely to face and how we can realistically deal with those challenges.

This is something which millions of people are missing, especially those raised in psychologically dysfunctional, emotionally neglectful or abusive environments. Many of us don’t know how to be emotionally healthy or functional simply because we were never really shown how and were often taught the very opposite in many ways.

The role of effective psychoeducation is to fill in some of the gaps in our emotional education. It increases our general understanding of how to live fulfilling lives covering key areas such as coping with difficulties, succeeding at our endeavours and developing healthy relationships with both ourselves and others.
