All tickets come with a copy of Better Days.

In this life-changing book, writer and spiritual coach Neal Allen teaches us stunning new methods to quiet our inner critic, combat anxiety, end procrastination and self-sabotage, and deepen our relationships.

If you're like most people, you have a superego: A nagging voice in your head telling you to work harder, be better, make more friends, and screw up less. It frowns at your mistakes, warns you that your list needs tending, and questions your attractiveness. It's a bully. And it holds you back.

Better Days will help you confront and immobilize the superego through a method that is simple, fun and riveting. Along the way you'll learn a dozen specific techniques anyone can use to move that snarky voice to the side. Reduce anxiety, increase satisfaction, and find your own freedom. Better days are just ahead!

"No other system has ever so efficiently broken through my lifelong sense of isolation as the work you are about to encounter, and at the same time, been so welcoming and even fun."
- Anne Lamott, Author of Dusk Night Dawn, Bird by Bird and others
