Amal Awad – In My Past Life I Was Cleopatra

25 February 2021 starting 6:00 pm for 6:30 pm

In conversation with Jo Thornely

For as long as humans have existed, we have consulted everything from the stars to stones with symbols on them. Growing up in an Arab Muslim family, journalist and TEDx presenter Amal Awad was keenly aware of the unseen forces at play in her life – superstition, fatalism and jinn were more real than any Hollywood fantasy.

From religious devotion to New Age love and light, Amal has tried … a lot. While this doesn’t make her an expert in healing your life, it does makes her a well-versed one, fluent in the boundless healing modalities on offer in our ever-expanding retail universe. From psychic mediums and spirit guides to Paleo diets and empowerment, there are questionable (and downright fraudulent) solutions being sold to the masses. Yet, arguably, there is still a lot of good to be found in these offerings.
In this funny and shrewdly observed book, Amal shares her personal journey to peace and empowerment via a wide array of psychics, healers and witches, considering the smorgasbord of spiritual thinking on offer for people wanting to #livetheirbestlife and exploring whether these practices can help, harm or both in the quest for spiritual enlightenment.
