Helmsley Place, London, E8 3SB

It is required that you book your tickets through the link provided (RSVP is not enough) For Tickets and More Info click here (https://www.funzing.com/su/BYSVA) As a Brit incarcerated in Arizona’s highest-security prisons including supermax, Shaun Attwood lived for 6 years in the company of killers, ranging from Mafia mass murderers to Aryan Brotherhood prison gang members. Join Shaun to hear his most gruesome stories, ranging from neo-Nazi psychos who killed just to earn gang tattoos, to Mafia hit men who whacked their rivals, such as Two Tonys, a mass murderer who left a trail of corpses from Tucson to Alaska but claimed they “all had it coming.” Two Tonys protected Shaun and told him his life story. Shaun will introduce you to Slingblade, a sumo-sized Vietnam vet he befriended, who was serving life for killing his father-in- law during a flashback, and to whom the other prisoners gave a wide berth. He tells the story of Bonzai, the most dangerous prisoner in Arizona,for whom the warden ordered built a special cell that included a shower and had its door permanently welded shut. You’ll hear how Shaun came under threat while running a multi-million-dollar Ecstasy ring from Mafia hit man Sammy the Bull Gravano, the underboss of the Gambino crime family, who killed 19 people. You’ll learn how he earned the protection of the New Mexican Mafia, the most powerful criminal organisation in Arizona. Living with a wide variety of killers gave Shaun a unique understanding of their psychology. Shaun is a best-selling true-crime author who does over 100 talks a year and has performed two Ted talks. Please be aware that this talk is not for the faint hearted. Shaun will be showing actual video footage of gang members and even guards murdering prisoners in the jail.

Exploring Altered States of Consciousness | Bristol

Needs a location

Please note! It is required that you book your tickets through the link provided (RSVP is not enough) For Tickets and More Info click here (https://www.funzing.com/su/Yuri8) Is it possible to experience altered states of consciousness? And if so, what are the pros and con's and reaching 'non-rational' states? Join Jez Hughes, a practitioner of shamanism with decades of experience, for a fascinating talk on the topic. In traditional indigenous societies shamanic trance states are often seen as the bedrock of a healthy life, society and culture. In the modern western world, such altered states of consciousness are seen at best as entertaining distractions or, worst they are viewed as pathological and dangerous. Yet the human drive to experience such non-rational states has never gone away and it could be argued is rising all the time. In this talk, we will explore how such states of consciousness are reached in shamanic societies, what their purpose is, and the potential dangers and pitfalls of working in this way. We will also explore how modern society could benefit from consciously engaging with the different realms of reality that are accessed through trance states. How this might satisfy our desire to find a meaning and purpose that is often so lacking in modern life. And finally, how it could help us face up to the ecological crisis we are facing in modern times. Venue: Loco Klub - Bristol Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm. *Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes. ************************************************************************************** Funzing Talks are here to re-invent your evenings, creating an exciting alternative to having a drink in your local pub or bar.
