Our mood is directly influenced on a daily basis by our environment and everyone and everything in it. Sight, sound, smell, touch and taste are the sensory conduits into our cognition, perceptions, feelings and emotions. On an analytical and archetypal level we project upon everything we encounter. The media, including main stream media news, music, movies and advertisements influence us both consciously and unconsciously and persuade individuals to abandon their own Critical Thinking and Objectivity to follow the narrative the media dictates.

Dr. O’Hara helps to deconstruct the medias powerful, and now more frequently nefarious role influencing people’s belief systems to help individuals focus on their own intelligence, intuition and discriminant cognition.
