Join us for an entertaining evening as Dr. Heath mixes sound psychoanalytic concepts with humor and humanity.

A whole new way of looking at your anxieties!

What is your anxiety trying to tell you? We love, we hate, we idealize and devalue. There’s a whole world of fantasy, a waking dream, affecting our perceptions and choices all the time. It can lead to anxieties and inhibitions, but it adds color to life.

But wait, we live in fantasy? How can that be? Join psychoanalyst Chris Heath as he walks through familiar examples. For instance, accumulating debt as we keep up appearances, being in love, and psychosomatic reactions are all everyday examples of our fantasies being lived out. And recognizing the power of the fantasies helps us deal with anxiety, and more richly enjoy the wonder of life.

Join Chris Heath, MD, psychoanalyst and creator of the Freudalicious Mind / HeathMD YouTube channel, as we attend to the messages our anxiety is trying to give us.
