From the moment we wake up until we go to sleep, we are bombarded by advertisements carefully designed to seduce our senses. This 24-hour marketing culture permeates all areas of our lives. But is there a way to protect ourselves from this onslaught? The programme offers some unusual solutions from three very different experts: Theo Poiesz is a professor of marketing at university of Tilberg in the Netherlands; Dr. Susan Blackmore is the author of “Consciousness, an Introduction”; and Patricia Ramaer is a modern-day shaman who teaches meditation.
