Experience the power of living the F**k It life: the profane way to profound happiness
When people hear about the ‘F**k It’ philosophy, or they see one of the F**k It books in the bookshop, or they know someone who’s been on a F**k It Retreat, they INSTANTLY understand the power of F**k It… they get it… that saying the phrase ‘F**k It’ has the power to relax us and help us let go quickly and powerfully.
It’s as if we already know we’re taking things too seriously, and attached to too many things that aren’t so important…
and when we hear this phrase, this awareness comes to the surface, and we then have the courage to let go.
And though we understand the power of F**k It so quickly, one question always rises up soon afterwards: HOW DO I USE ‘F**K IT’ IN MY DAILY LIFE? or HOW CAN I START LIVING A F**K II LIFE?
And this question indicates the complicated daily struggle that
most people face in their lives: the worry and anxiety they experience, the fears they hold, the busy-ness and stress they live moment to moment. Everyday life for many people is a struggle. The thought of letting go and relaxing more is attractive. The possibility of doing what you love, and being more who you are is attractive. But how?
This then, becomes the big question…
It may seem potty, but many people are so used to living an over-busy, over-stressed, over-anxious life, that they are somehow addicted to it. Maybe not so potty when you discover that we can actually become addicted to the adrenaline that pumps around our bodies when we are in an anxious state.
So the first question we have to ask people is –
Are you ready to live a F**k It Life?
Are you ready to face some fears and become freer?
Are you ready to let go of some things that are causing you pain and anxiety?
Are you ready to learn how to relax and slow down more?
Are you ready to listen to yourself more, and follow whatever you hear?
Are you ready to finally stop struggling and realize that life can be easier?
Are you ready to find your joy and bliss, and follow them both?
Or, even if you think you’d like something else, are you addicted to you life the way it is?
It’s a big question.
But if you’re ready to live The F**k It Life,
We can help.
First of all, let’s knock on the head one idea of what ‘The F**k It Life’ could be – it’s not about being a careless, selfish, happy-go-lucky, problem-free, dizzy person.
The idea is this: that most of us are, in one way or another, in a prison of sorts: that we’re trapped by certain things in our lives, whether by what we believe, by the ‘shoulds’ and the ‘oughts’ that we live by, by the situations we’ve found ourselves in. To live The F**k It Life, we start to understand what these prisons are; that they are usually created by us and that there are ways to become free using ‘F**k It’.
In the end, living a F**k It Life, you learn how to move through experiences without becoming imprisoned, and instead becoming enriched by everything that happens to us.
We may still face challenging situations at times, but we don’t get stuck with them… in fact, we may well start loving it all, whatever it is. That is a F**k It Life.
It was back in 2004, after years of practice in Taoism, Buddhism, Shamanism and all the colours of New Age Spirituality that we realised that this profanity, ‘F**k It’, had so much spiritual and therapeutic power.
John’s first taste of its power had come a couple of years earlier during a dark time (which he talks about in his first book, F**k It: the Ultimate Spiritual Way) when he finally found release in saying F**k It to everything whilst realising he didn’t give a foetid dingo’s kidney about what people thought of him.
Having realised its power, we started suggesting to our students (on retreats we were running) that they say F**k It too. And they all loved this suggestion. So we decided to run a retreat specifically called a ‘F**k It Week’. And it was a hit. So, then, over the years we have developed and honed what works for us into the F**k It process, which seems to work for everyone.
Hundreds of people have now experienced a F**k It Retreat and thousands more use the advice on relaxing, letting go, accepting, watching impartially and breathing consciously in the F**k It books.
There’s a reason why
people have been meditating for thousands of years – it works. The F**k It State is a meditative state which helps you dissolve stress, tension and worry.
Conscious breathing is easy,
powerful and at the heart of every meditative practice – including parts of the F**k It process. It benefits all your organs and helps you relax.
Chi Kung, the Chinese energy practice, is the most F**k It of all the arts. (Qi/Chi being ‘life energy’ and Gong/Kung work or practice). The F**k It form gives you the benefits without the effort.
“It aims to bridge the gap between spirituality and real life – to bring it back to planet Earth. Its recipe pick-‘n’-mixes eastern philosophies, adds a soupçon of martial arts,
a dash of shamanism and a big dollop of humour.”
“The therapy gets you to realise that when bad things happen, it’s the way life is supposed to go. Take a deep breath and don’t get worked up about things out of your control.”
“The F**k It philosophy helped me to see that life is neither good nor bad
– it just is, and the quicker you accept this fact, the better.”
“Everyone can relate to F**k It”
“It’s addictive. To say and act upon F**k It is to close our eyes and jump.
We have to let go to gain, and we learn that it’s good.”
From all our years of F**k It Retreats, writing books, hours and hours of workshops and Q&A sessions and thousands of emails, we know the areas that people are most likely to get stuck and imprisoned by. So:
The course addresses the 12 most common areas that people get stuck with and want to use F**k It on, including relationships, work, weight issues and self-esteem.
You’ll learn tools and techniques that you can use not just for those 12 areas but for any situation you’re facing that leaves you feeling as though the prison walls are closing in.
Most importantly - we teach you how to relax – deeply – to access the F**k It State - where you find you care less about things, feel more playful, less inhibited, more creative, more open.
We show you how to introduce the qualities of this F**k It State into your daily life, so you can tap into this state more easily and more frequently. (When you do, interesting things, ‘magic’ things begin to happen.)
We’ve worked with people who have been stuck in numerous ways, from all over the world and we’ve learned that the F**k It ideas we use work for everyone. And as you start to say F**k It to your fears, to the things that are not working for you and to what others think, you’ll find yourself able to:
We’ve been preparing the ideas for such an online course for years. We love sharing our F**k It ideas on our F**k It Retreats here in Italy. And it’s been gratifying that so many people around the world have read the F**k It books. So the idea of bringing our personal F**k It teaching to a large audience around the world via an online offering has always appealed to us.
We’ve also involved 100s of people in the process developing this course by asking them what they most want to hear about, and how they’d like to hear it.
So we’ve created this 12 week course based on those findings: with a weekly webinar from us; with weekly video exercises (F**k It Survival Guides); with longer video instruction on how to meditate (the F**k It way), how to work with energy (the F**k It way), and much more. We will take you through a thorough, in-depth F**k It process: guiding you step-by-step through how to introduce the power of F**k It into your daily life.
And one of the beauties of this method of teaching – is the time involved. You will get the chance to learn about how to use F**k It in one area of your life, eg. in how you deal with stress, then go out and use that learning during the week. This means the F**k It teaching will become part of your life for those 12 weeks. You thus learn something and can then apply it straight away, then add the next layer of teaching the following week…
Until all the parts fit beautifully together as you conclude the course and living The F**k It Life becomes your natural mode.
And you can do this from anywhere in the world.
“F**k It really has made a huge difference in my life and my outlook on things.”
“F**k it has helped me not to get caught up in the small stuff as much. I've a long way to go yet after living a life of chronic daily stress but f**k it, it's a start right!?”

People write to us every week telling us what they said F**k It to and the freedom and happiness they have experienced as a result – here’s just a what a few folks said:
“I believe by saying ‘F**k It’ to my life as I once knew it – obsessive, controlling, anal –
I was able to fully recover from my eating disorder."
“I may still have a broken back and be in pain, but saying ‘F**k It’
set in motion achain of events that changed my life for good.”
“‘F**k It’ has been an invaluable mantra for me, one I continually use.
It helps me get to the next success level, where even the sky is no longer a limit for me.”
“I decided to say ‘F**k It’ to the sensible car thing. I got home. I went into my house, put my bags down and before I knew it I was in my local Porsche dealer. Then I was driving my Porsche. And that’s what I’ve been doing ever since. Not terribly sensible, but massively rewarding – in a visceral, primal kind of way.”
“Saying ‘F**k It’ is the best thing I have ever done, as I am now doing
something I love and inspiring people to follow their dreams.”
“My mom passed away. Once I finally said ‘F**k It’ to my grief and allowed myself to experience the depths of it, an overwhelming peace fell over me. My mind shut the f**k up and I was able to feel her strong connection and hear her wisdom again.”

We know it works, people who’ve been to our F**k It Retreats know it works, but just to give you complete and utter peace of mind we have a 14 day, no questions asked, money back guarantee on our Living the F**k It Life online course – so, F**k It, you’ve absolutely nothing to lose have you?
We’ve created these in-depth training videos that allow you to learn the F**k It energy work and meditation from your own home.
We’ve created quick videos that you can watch time and time again to help you deal with real and pressing issues (such as fear).
And we’ll be taking you through the process with the weekly webinars: 12 life-changing steps helping you to Live a F**k It Life for yourself, sharing our stories, developing the teaching.
We are so excited about sharing this F**k It way of Living with you, in a way that we know will be powerful and effective for you.
We are thrilled to be guiding you through this process…. To be creating a space (that will cross continents) for you to explore in a deep way how you can relax more, and live more who you truly are.
We have invested a lot (of both money and time) in bringing this course to you. We have worked with a TV director and producer for the videos; we are working with online course experts to make sure everything happens and works correctly; and we have spent 100s of hours preparing the materials for this course and 1000s of hours developing and teaching F**k It.
But we have always had one aim in mind as regards the value of the course:
That's because we want people from around the world to be able to benefit from our F**k It teaching, not only do we want the teaching to be accessible, but we want the price to be accessible too.
We were recommended to set the price at €1200, by someone who helps set up similar courses for other international teachers. And you will find other courses at that price (and more expensive too).
But we felt that would exclude too many people at that price. And we really do want as many people to benefit from this as possible.
So we set the price at €297 for the whole 12-week course - which feels bloomin' great value to us.
If we weren’t running it, we’d do it ourselves.
We hope you’ll be joining us soon for this great experience of F**k It in ‘Living The F**k It Life’ – there’s some lovely bonuses for you too.
