Awaken Your Senses

with Wallid Aboulnaga

It’s not often a 1 day event can make a life changing difference. Today was one of those and I am so grateful to have the EO community around me to not only share it, but to support each other during such an emotional experience. Simply amazing. 

Thank you to Walid for his guidance and expertise, as well as to all EO Perth Members, Accelerators and Sponsors who participated wholeheartedly.

Ice Bath Therapy: We pushed our boundaries by immersing ourselves in a chilly 950kgs of ice. It was a challenging yet incredibly rewarding experience that taught us the power of mental resilience and the ability to conquer our fears.

Shamanic Breathwork: Guided by Walid, we tapped into the healing potential of our breath. Through profound breathwork practices, we accessed deep inner wisdom and unlocked hidden potential within ourselves.

Fireside with Ben Cousins

Major appreciation to Ben Cousins for the in-depth insight, such a privilege.

He shared how these pressures led him to continuously feel like he needed an escape and the battles this led him to face. Ben talked fondly about how it was his return to a local football club that helped him start the process of rebuilding the life he is living now.
