The Ghosts In Our Machine

Siobhan’s Journey Begins September 16th

We are excited to announce Siobhan’s 5-Day Ghost-Free Journey, proudly supported by LUSH Charity Pot.

Join us from Monday September 16th until Friday September 20th as Siobhan explores a 5-Day vegan lifestyle with the wise and gentle council of our Ghost-Free Journey Mentors Donna & Rosemary. 

Our special guest is Victoria Moran, best selling author and founder/director of Mainstreet Vegan Academy. Victoria will ‘drop in’ virtually on Thursday September 19th to answer some of Siobhan’s questions.

In Siobhan’s own words:

I am so excited for this journey! I am a 21 year old student who has been a full-time animal lover for my entire life, and a vegetarian for about 7 years now. I have been looking into eliminating dairy and eggs from my diet for about 3 years now, but I fear the implications that may come to my health … When I saw The Ghosts In Our Machine at Hot Docs in Toronto this year, I decided it was time to make a change and learn how to adapt to the vegan lifestyle.

    When you’re tempted with eggs, try and imagine the battery hens crammed in the cages and the male chicks being ground up alive. Also the baby calves being torn from their mother’s and used for veal. Good Luck!

      Thank you Anne, I really needed this extra encouragement!

    Hey Siobhan! We’re in your corner! So happy for you!

    Hi Siobhan! Excited for you to begin this journey! I found that information was really key to my embracing veganism — and internalizing that information so that I didn’t just get it intellectually, but emotionally, too. If you’re in it for the animals, I think understanding their experience is so important in terms of your own motivation. NOT to be self-aggrandizing (at all, really — this is a bit embarrassing) but there are two articles on my own blog I would love for you to read. The sole purpose of my blog is to make people think and see things from the animals’ point of view. So I invite you to read my latest post, “Anatomy of a Chicken Rescue,” as well as one from May 1st this year called “Michael.” You can find them both at

    Looking forward to seeing how your week goes!

      Wow Debra. I am so thankful to have been introduced to your blog. I read through Anatomy of a Chicken Rescue and had absolute chills running through me. I am astounded not only by your writing style but also by your wealth of knowledge and compassion toward these animals. I will be thinking of you and little Michael on every step of this journey. You make me want to be a better advocate for animals!

    Your body and conscious are about to gain so much peace. You are an amazing person for opening your mind and heart!!

    Congrats on your choice to do this lifestyle for a week, I’m sure you will find it really rewarding!
    I’m in the Toronto Area if you want to connect at a veggie restaurant sometime, there’s many in TO that cater to tasting like conventional food, except much healthier!

    You will feel WONDERFUL by the end of the week, I assure you!
    My best tip for you would be to have a bigggg banana smoothie every morning, fills you up and gives you sugar for the day!

    Best wishes!
