The Hidden Power of Emotional Freedom
 Jean-Paul Gravel delivered a thought-provoking and enlightening talk last Wednesday. He was born into a very dysfunctional household, and grew up in an environment where emotional and physical abuse were a daily occurrence. As a young child, he grew up accepting being a product of his environment. Until one day in 1996 when he experienced a beautiful moment of clarity… At that moment,  Jean-Paul’s entire life changed because he realized the biggest existential truth – that our life is an illusion. We can re-create our illusions in a way that gives us happier, more fulfilling lives. For more information, visit
