CALM THE F#@K DOWN! – Why stress makes US swear
Educational, inspirational talk and nourishing ‘mood food’ dinner  

DATE: JUNE 27TH – 6:30-8:30PM

Calm the F#@K Down!
is the perfect event for anyone who feels overwhelmed by life or stress. Stress affects us all but ultimately ongoing, unrelenting stress is non-sustainable; something mentally or physically eventually has to give.

This special evening hosted by Ruby Lane and presented by best selling author & keynote speaker Matthew Johnstone with Nutritionist, Naturopath and Author Belinda Kirkpatrick; will inspire you with some great tools, tips and recipes in bringing some calm back into your lives.

Matthew Johnstone has combined his own experience living with depression and his creative background in advertising. He has written and illustrated a series of very simple books,  four of which have been bestsellers in Australia and the UK.  His most well known ‘I Had a Black Dog’ became the basis of a World Health Organisation campaign about depression. His third book, The Alphabet of the Human Heart -The illustrated A to Z on what it is to be human, made number 4 for UK book sales in January 2011 and went to #9 on the Sunday Times Bestseller List.
