Pronoia by Rob Brezsny for sale on Amazon
Pronoia is the idea everything happens FOR you, 
not to you, and people everywhere are out to help you. 
We notice pronoia more in our own experience 
the more we help others see it is true for them.
John Perry Barlow coined the term pronoia in 1976, 
and Rob Brezsny literally wrote the book on it nearly
30 years later. I earn nothing from his book sales 
and the author has not endorsed this program.

PEP is not a traditional book club. It's more like a 
study group and mastermind program. You will want to 
read Pronoia and play with Rob's exercises and activities, 
but our Pod will go way beyond that...

The point of PEP is to support and encourage 
each other in blessing the world with 
what we're each dreaming of and yearning to disseminate, creating and noticing the evidence 
the Universe is conspiring on our behalf.

Here's an example that recently showed up,
a rare expression of poetry for me. 
I expect PEP to attract a diverse group 
ranging from people ready to burst free
of timidity, pessimism, and a restrictive
comfort zone all the way to freak flag fliers 
fired up by collaboration and accountability nudges.

  • Next we have a few minutes of intentional laughter
  • In the final round, at least two Pod members get the hot seat for discussion and support of their BIG pronoia experiment

What Experiments Will You Conduct?

It's OK if you don't know yet. 
Here is some of my personal pronoia evidence
from the past 12+ years. 

It's OK if you 
don't know yet. 

Here is some of my personal pronoia evidence
from the past 12+ years. 

  • 20 months after my marriage ended, arranged my first date on Craigslist with a woman who suggested reading Pronoia during the only time we ever met
  • ​By the time I'd read the first 25 pages of Pronoia, childhood fears and paranoia vanished
  • ​Within a year, a psychiatrist undiagnosed and unmedicated me after 20 years identifying as bipolar*
  • ​My volunteer work shifted from angry rebelliousness to hopeful partnership building
  • Free Hugs became a regular fun activity for me
  • Changed careers to make a living helping people with my words as a coach and hypnotherapist
  • ​Started my still ongoing (10+ years) daily laughter practice
  • ​Laughed with people from all 50 United States and 69 other countries in a nearly 3.5 year daily video series
  • ​Traveled to 11 countries teaching laughter and Laughnosis
  • ​Laughed in public with random people around the world
  • ​​Thrived during Covid isolation, creating/hosting Laughter Gym and writing the book, Laughter Lost and Found
  • Created PEP so you can see pronoia evidence for yourself

ONE TIME OFFER: In August 2016, I began the domestic (US) leg of the #HelpTheWorldLaugh tour, which went global in January 2017 when I embarked on an "indefinite international laughter adventure." I said I would "browse the planet for a new place to call home." After nearly two years living in Vietnam, my Mom died and I lived in New York with Dad for nine months. Then I relocated to Melbourne, Australia just in time to be locked down by the pandemic. Through it all, the Universe kept conspiring on my behalf. I continued exploring intentional laughter every day and discovered "you can both lose yourself and find yourself in laughter!" This became the basis for my latest book and 2 x 60 minute classes called Laughter Lost and Found. This three piece set usually costs $65 but you can pay just $50 by clicking the little YES box next to the flashing red arrow above to add it to your order now.
