Diego & Jessica

Diego Fontanive, Founder of The EOF Project
   Diego Fontanive, from Venice, Italy, has a background in
   Political Science, Sociology and Psychology. His main concern
   and field of research are the flawed systems that reduce our
   ability to think.
   After becoming familiar with the contradictions embedded within
   the decaying structures of society, it became important for him
   to explain how all systems that come from ideologies fragment
   and warp our understanding of reality. All attempts aimed at
  “becoming a better person or a better society" –  due to our
   desire to cling to systems without understanding why they were
   created in the first place – lead to a false sense of progress,
   which in the end creates unnecessary psychological tensions
   for everyone.
   Diego is on the Board of Directors for Atheist Alliance        
    International he is also the creator and teacher of the
   He wrote numerous articles for prominent members of the
   psychological community and institutions such as the University
   of Tucson Arizona and the U.N. He is also an Artist.
  He is currently working on an upcomming documentary titled

   Jessica Schab, from Vancouver, Canada, is a former
   spiritual speaker. After ten years, she renounced her  "New Age  
   metaphysical path" when she understood how this route was
   causing psychological harm and cognitive instability.

   She is now a speaker of rational thinking and exposes the
   dangerous patterns of spirituality and ideology. She feels compelled
   to speak out on this subject and shares her story with the intention
   of broadening our awareness of cognitive and emotional problems      and encouraging a sense of responsibility.

   She is the manager for The EOF Project as well as
   the co-creator and coach for the Logically Emotional 1 year
   program and the co-creator and teacher of the 'All In the Mind'
   course for the Cambridge e-Learning Institute.
   She is a prolific poetry and blog writer offering an inside-look at the
   self-manipulation that often tends to come from beliefs. She has a
   vast audience follows her Bali Blog series and is currently working       on a feature length documentary based off of them titled 
   Jessica is one of the few spiritual speakers to have transitioned
   out of it to denouncing and debunking what she once was about,
   she offers us a unique testimonial.

This has been the most amazing year and it's mostly thanks to Diego and Jessica amongst others and I am sure more to come doing what you do. I am starting to understand what Diego is talking about... and that is pretty bloody impressive!
This is great... and once people start to take full responsibility for their life then they do not need to find external reasons for their mess anymore. They will simply acknowledge their own creation and start to take care of it in an increasingly comprehensive way.
I am sure that besides the voices of blame and anger you will receive a lot of positive feedback and an expression of gratitude because your work is simply amazing and your dedication is astounding.. Thank you EOF!
You come close to providing a way of defeating depression than anyone else i have read, and i appreciate this. Depression can be a very hard nut to crack, yet the only solution is to discover and implement awareness from all the chains and tethers you speak of, conditioning, programming, karma, gods, and all the rest. Keep refining your tools to knock the walls down that are stifling us.
Your content has razor sharp lucidity; while they may not sit well with the herd, they strongly encourage one to expand, postulate and extrapolate ones perspective and really t.h.i.n.k. for their own sanity and question the paradigm. I know you get it .. definitely not for fluffy woo woo spiritualists.
I must admit when I first started reading the Orientation books I found them very hard to understand and did not understand where Diego was coming from, as I only first read Jessica's Bali Blog. I decided to read the rest of her Bali blogs. After I did I was able to understand Diego better and each blog made it easier to understand what the EOF Project is about (I thought the blogs were brilliant The videos as well) and helped me understand the EOF content a lot better.
Your content helped me to understand my depression and to listen to my thoughts and not to fight it the first time I read them (must admit it's the biggest relief In my life understanding my depression and if I was to have a belief it would be that Diego is a genius and I cannot thank him enough for writing the books) the second time I read them a lot more made sense.
Thinking back on my depression and after reading the orientation books just makes me realize how conditioned my mind was the constant mind rape I did for years the self-hatred the Suicidal thoughts the constant inner battle against my subconscious the stupidity of it all It's quite crazy. I cannot believe i used to fall for that.

I have ”followed” you for a few years now, and I have always loved the things you shared and appreciated your honesty! Ever since you guys got together, I feel like I’ve learned a lot. (Or maybe I should say unlearned a lot;)) I have a lot of different fears and a lot of insecurities... I’ve really started observing my thoughts and it’s unbelievable how beliefs and conditionings have taken over.. scary to realize.

I get excited when I think about going through this process and digging deep. Because I’m determined to do it!

I stopped having major binges which is a total relief to me and has had a great impact on my mood. How it came into being, well I guess its a combination of what I learned during the sessions with EOF and having a good nutritional status. I started taking supplements right after Christmas because I felt I was undernourished. Not that I ate too little but I felt as if I lacked many essential nutrients. Than the magic happened. Three week later I felt like something inside of me was coming alive. My mind became sharper and I could handle myself better in difficult situations. But I was still craving food. So one night I was in this bad mental state and I really just wanted to eat but part of me did not. And then it hit me: 'I do not have to do this, I get to decide if I eat or not!' This simple realisation saved my evening and the following and so on.
The thing of course is, when you pull off a layer that blocks everything that is underneath you find yourself wanting to put it back. I can see my anxiety much clearer now, it hurts, but I feel a little bit less scared. I even managed to go to the university and talk to my professor about the article without having a nervous breakdown and I managed to have a normal conversation without me feeling small and inferior. So while the anxiety still lurks behind every door, I also start see the qualities that I have (although I may have left many of them untouched for quite a while) and I become more and more willing to go and use them.
In the first place this is a success-story, but reality kicks in very quickly and I see myself still running in circles trying to avoid stuff I should do. But I feel much stronger and more able to break another pattern now that I have broken the most devastating and deadly of them.
Thanks to EOF I have acquired the tools I needed to find my way through my mind and through the jungle of society. I want to thank especially Diego for the many hours of clearness when everything seemed misty and blurred. You two have helped me a lot to become more conscious about the workings of my mind and the tricks I play with easy it is to defeat yourself over and over while life goes on without you. But I also want to stress that I wouldn't have had the energy to pull myself out of this vicious food cycle without also paying attention to my body as well.

Your posts are the only thing keeping me from closing my Facebook account, as your posts have helped me so much in my life, a life with less fear cause it's not so scary when you understand your fear like you showed how to do. Keep up the good work!
I met Diego and Jessica online, however, this was not just meeting two random people via facebook, but meeting the whole new world (EOF), something that I always wanted to see, and was searching for as well, people that so passionate about thinking, thinking clearly and understanding of the condition itself, the condition that we all have and that is the reason why it's so hard to see, i mean we understand that we have been conditioned, but to what extent, and how deep, is a indisputably serious business, and it takes special tools to decode and deconstruct such stubborn construction that we humans managed to accumulate thru our brief history of existence, and these incredible tools is the EOF project, frankly, EOF project helped me to alter the course of my life, it gave me courage to ask questions that i was afraid to ask before, or did not even known that i could, it gave me totally new understanding about my and collective conditions, i am certain that if we have such tools, the tools that EOF project have too offer, incorporated into our global education system, this is the reason why i joined the project and admire anyone whom will endeavour, and attempts to embark on the journey into self-study, understanding, this project is not only good for the schools, and universities, but also just about for anyone that is brave enough to dare to understand and question, observable and not so observable realities.~~*
Despite all of the allure - of spiritual practices, all of these attempts to tap into "somewhere else" or become "something else" i couldn't help but feel the red flags go up in me. i think most of us in this world have our interests focused in hobbies, not interests in the mechanics of the mind. i don't think human beings have ever rationally faced their minds - thoughts / feelings and the thoughts behind those feelings and so on. it is the most difficult experience (for me at least) because it is the most unfamiliar - (in so many ways). anyways, i do see how unnecessary / distracting our spiritual "hobbies" are in relation to real, REAL human development.
lately, i find the only real fulfilling, trustworthy, genuine experience in this world is being able to connect with another.. not so much through hobbies / beliefs .. but with one who is willing to discuss these beliefs, the obstruction that goes on in the mind on a daily basis .. and dig into it with me - maybe not to find an answer .. but to understand a bit .. to understand enough to at least to not fall victim to shallow thinking / irrational behaviours / stagnant living - i think to get out - get out of this world wide mess .. we have to go inward and really observe our mind mechanics / psychology / emotions / reactions etc - if you care anything at all about life.. and i mean, REAL LIFE. not the after life, not the angel realm, not the 5th dimension, etc .. then the examination of your mind should be your foundation for living first before all.. or else you will just be cheating yourself and your real potential as an intelligent, caring, clearer human being. i can reflect on my mistakes in a healthier way .. again, much more consistent. i feel more careful and considerate and less emotionally drained. and how appreciative i am of you and diego's work.  this is the best thing i have ever done for myself. my life is so much more enriching and greater quality. i feel like with a year or two of dismantling so much .. i felt so uncomfortable .. and confused. emptying myself also made me not have a foundation .. but little by little i have been rebuilding something so much stronger. sturdy thinking, stable relationship to my feelings. better relationships in general. i am reaping the benefits now. i can enjoy this process of understanding, questioning and learning. when before it was incredibly intimidating. it is nice to be in a position to trust myself to think rationally - and not sacrifice the things that are important to me .. like the things that actually make "me" me.

Thank you EOF for providing just that.
These are many words that describe my experience working with Jessica & Diego learning is not one of them, more like revealing, un-learning, observing & understanding the root and origin of my struggling & internal suffering are more suitable characteristics. Its unlike anything i have ever heard or seen of before  & i can say its truly unique!
I have witnessed myself blooming throughout the whole process
that was put so clearly to the illusory perception of what we think fear is. Jess & Diego gently but firmly facilitates the process for you; by exposing your own out-worn past identities, conditioning's, beliefs. As I began to observe my thinking, I began to notice the energy behind my thoughts and the images it creates in my mind which are all stemming from the past.
I'm sure many people would be interested in hearing about my experiences dealing directly with Diego and Jessica, and their mysterious EOF "project". Many things have been said about these two people. Having spoken to them both once a week for 6 months.

I can reveal that they conspired to be terribly helpful, viciously caring human beings who helped me help myself when I had pretty much given up on life. However, I must say that without the assistance of these two genuinely caring down to earth people, I may not even be alive today let alone sane and able to live my life again. I can also tell you what they are not - they are not a cult, not charging exorbitant prices for their help, not aliens, and this is my honest experience of them. I write this to give another angle on Diego and Jessica as so many people seem interested in what they are all about. Obviously I think they are great as they helped me to be able to think. I leave it to you to form your own opinion of them obviously, and I hope you find my account interesting.
