Rayya & Liz Women’s Day 2015

“When I’m invited somewhere, then I probably belong there. People don’t invite me for the things that I lack; they invite me for the things that I bring.” –Rayya Elias

There are times when we realize it is time to move beyond the situation, relationship, or tribe we are in – our greatest obstacle to forward progress can be our own minds. Rayya Elias offers hard-won advice from her uphill battle out of addiction and pain towards a life of friendship, creativity and love. Elizabeth Gilbert leads this conversation on the stage at the Sydney Opera House during International Women’s Day.
