A multi-week psychoeducational group experience where we explore our digital behaviors, the root of compulsivity, the modern ego, behavioral design strategies, and the pros/cons of our modern world.
As we reverse engineer the persuasive technology that hooked us; we take back our autonomy, ability to be present, and capacity for connection.

Digital devices are meant to serve as tools, yet they have become our codependent companions.
In 2012, there was a dramatic shift in behavior as more than 50% of Americans reported owning cell phones. Coincidently, rates of depression and suicide among young adults have skyrocketed since then.
The digital world has taken control of all of our lives. Tech companies are building with persuasive psychology in mind while profiting from our shortened attention and cognitive decline.
We are living in an attention economy, and it's becoming a scarce commodity.
It's time to take back control of our mind.
