A World Gone Mad: Finding Your Sanity in an Insane World
Ashland, OR – Saturday, December 14, 2019 9am-1:30pm
Ashland Hills Hotel & Conference Center
Do you have an uncomfortable feeling that our world is going utterly insane? Do you feel anxious every time you turn on the news? Are you feeling outraged by society’s leadership and the seeming trend toward more fear & chaos?
Many of us are feeling lonelier, more isolated, and more despairing than ever before.
Large corporations, media conglomerates, political leaders, and even our medical and legal systems capitalize on our fears and concerns to sell us more products, feed us more propaganda; thereby manipulating our behavior to fit their agendas. That’s the bad news.
The good news is that once our eyes are open to how we are being manipulated, across the whole spectrum of society, we can take back control over our lives, empower ourselves, and further positive change.
The phenomenon of ‘psychopathy’ affects us in direct and indirect ways that are seldom recognized or addressed.
The realization that truly psychopathic people lack any form of conscience is a challenging yet necessary understanding. There are people with distinctly different brain structures among us. By recognizing and avoiding the predatory and manipulative tactics they employ, we become better equipped to leading happier and more productive lives
Join us for this solutions-oriented, blinders-off, down-the-rabbit-hole conference to learn about this critical understanding. Engage with cutting-edge thought leaders and expand your understanding, empower yourself and your community, and avoid these kinds of pervasive influences that increasingly challenge us.
At this conference, you will discover how to identify the sociopaths, psychopaths and narcissists who are, unbeknownst to us, causing insidious damage to our relationships, our communities and our world.
If you’ve known more than 25 people in your life, you’ve known a psychopath.
This conference is presented as a to tackle a difficult and under-recognized aspect of our social and civic lives. It is designed to help educators, health professionals, parents, activists, and anyone who wants to better understand how to get out from under the hidden influence of mind control. By participating, you will be able to recognize how some of these negative forces may be impacting your life, have compassion for yourself as you deepen your awareness of these subjects, and be empowered to take positive steps towards self-actualization.
– Identify the personality types that negatively impact your life, community, and the world.
– Recognize their manipulative strategies, and understand the practical and physiological distinction among people on the Psychopathic, Sociopathic, and Narcissistic spectrum.
– Get practical tools to avoid harmful people and mitigate the negative impact of the psychopaths, sociopaths, and narcissists you must come into contact with.
– Understand how institutions and corporations use the communication strategies of fear and manipulation, and censor relevant information in order to manipulate the public.

LECTURE: The Sociopath Next Door – What are we up Against?
BIO Lori Lorenz, MA began her formal education in trauma and recovery at UCLA completing her BA in Psychology with an emphasis in physiological psychology. While there, she worked on cutting edge research identifying the effects of stress on the developing brain, research with frightening implications for using stress to control the development of the brain’s emotional reactivity. After doing her own trauma recovery work, she earned her Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University, immediately beginning her career working with sexual abuse survivors, mothers of abused children, and perpetrators.
For over 20 years, Lori has specialized in complex cases of sexual abuse, including cult/Satanic ritual abuse, torture and programming including apparent MKULTRA victims. Lori has developed and teaches the I-MAP system of understanding the recovery journey out of trauma. EFT founder Gary Craig featured her in his Specialty Series 1 DVD training program. Lori was also one of five EFT experts for his week-long intensive with veterans suffering from combat PTSD, released as the documentary “Operation Emotional Freedom”.

LECTURE: Media and Social Engineering: Who’s Running the Show?
We face an ever-increasing onslaught of media inputs from an even wider and more divergent range of sources, many with questionable motives and modus operandi. How can we discern not just what is accurate or factual – and reflects our values – but what is real and can be trusted?
How we can make decisions that truly reflect not just how we see the world but really is about the world we want to create for ourselves, our community, our nation, and our planet? The notion of reality is important, for either we create our own or someone creates it for us. The question is, can you tell the difference? And more importantly, can you tell the difference when it really matters, and can you trust your own internal barometers for discerning truth and accuracy when it is most needed?
This blinders-off interactive session will leave you with three key understanding: (1) We are all programmers, (2) Discerning the conscious from the subconscious and the unconscious (3) When and how to use your reality distortion field.

LECTURE: A Shot of Truth- Science, Censorship and the REAL Fake News in Healthcare
In the past three years in a row, the life expectancy in the United States has gone down. Medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States. The sicker you are, the more doctors, hospitals, and even health insurance plans increase their bottom lines. At the same time health advocates concerned about the over-exposure to toxins, over-testing, and overdiagnosis are often labeled “anti-science.”
this talk we will explore the recent systematic government and corporate-sponsored censorship of alternative health information, why history will not look kindly on this moment, and how to stop Big Money from making you sick. This lecture is a shot of truth. Join journalist and book author Jennifer Margulis for a lively, honest, and science-forward talk about the real threat to human health: corporate and government malfeasance, scare-mongering, fake news, and a virtual media blackout about the dangers of modern medicine.
