PRESENTER BIOGRAPHY:
I am Elena Joy Thurston and I am a suicide survivor.  I lived an inauthentic life until my late 30s, feeling crushingly alone even though I was married with kids and surrounded by love.  I am now the Executive Director of the Pride and Joy Foundation.  I use my experience of going through conversion therapy and the subsequent healing based in mindfulness, to assist others. Whether it was being enrolled in conversion therapy without knowing (as was my case), being enrolled by a trusted family member, being a victim through “religious assistance” or any other way that the effects of conversion therapy can show up in our lives, I assist my audiences by validating your experience, educating on potential outcomes, and providing tools to design your own healing strategy. I am a professional speaker, including TEDx, and corporate trainer as well.

Conversion Therapy: Healing and Understanding

  • understanding what Conversion Therapy is and what it’s not
  • the current legal standing and how we can affect change
  • the resulting suicidal ideation and how to use Mindfulness to address it
The focus for February 16 will be what conversion therapy is, its current legal status, and current efforts to end it.  I’ll do a brief summary of my experience, then time will be opened up for discussion regarding personal experiences.

The focus for February 23 will be healing strategies based on mindfulness, and how to integrate it into both everyday life and intentional healing.
