Step out of black and white thinking. Shortlisted in top 10 for the People's Choice Podcast Awards 2017 in Education (maybe I should try entering an award again - I haven't since). I'm unboxable. A podcast that ranges from Children to Adults. Personality to Psychology. Education to Development. Philosophy to a modern critique of society and our politics. Self-help to Spiritualism. Vulnerability & creativity. Racism & Society Culture I started out caring about success - now I care about secureness. And I am to do this in a way that sits with my own authentic self and spiritual nature. I don't aim to give answers - I aim to give you permission to arrive at your own. Critical thinking possible for everyone regardless of education status. Writing - on .patreon dot com/purplepsychology become a supporter of this podcast - more information (drnaoiseoreilly dot org).
