Train Your Brain, Transform Your Health


ynamic Neural Retraining Sys- tem™, an ongoing 5-day neural rehabilitation program, is coming to Santa Fe April 18-22. The step-by-step techniques used in the Dynamic Neural Retraining System are based on neu- roplasticity therapy, which re-wires the limbic system in the brain to build more functional neural pathways and correct the associated maladapted stress response. Patients are taught how to effectively self-direct neuro- plastic changes in the limbic sys- tem that restore brain function, decrease or alle- viate symptoms of illness, and

normalize sensory perception. The event is facilitated by An-

nie Hopper, a Victoria, Canada-based limbic system rehabilitation specialist, writer, keynote speaker and founder of the Dynamic Neural Retraining System. Hopper has been traveling internation- ally since 2008 to help people success- fully recover from disabling illnesses, even those who have been chronically ill for decades. “With regard to chemical, electrical

and other environmental sensitivities, after the initial damage to the brain, the fight or flight centers of the brain be- come over activated to toxicants in the environment, causing sufferers to have heightened sensory perception and react to toxicants at levels far below normal,” explains Hopper. “A process of sensitization often occurs where the sufferer will find himself reacting to more and more classes of substances which increasingly limits the quality of life of the individual.”

“While immediate results can hap- pen within the five-day training period,” says Hopper, “one must practice daily for six months to receive the full ben- efits of this revolutionary training.”

Third Time Lucky: A Creative Recovery I

n fairy tales, if the third travail doesn’t kill you, magical transformations occur. Third Time Lucky: A Creative Recovery by Pasha Hogan is no fairytale, however. It is the real-life account of a young woman’s struggle and triumph over issues that affect every modern woman: sexuality, body image, empowerment and the journey toward truth. On Saturday, April 6, from 3 to 5 p.m., The Ark in

Santa Fe will host a book signing and talk by the local author. Larry Dossey, MD, the internationally influential advocate of the importance of spirituality in healthcare, says: “This book is a joy to read, and I could not put it down. Pasha Hogan writes so clearly, powerfully, and enchantingly about the inherent creativity and trium- phant spirit in every-one, waiting to be freed.” Hogan’s captivating story depicts how the devastating news of a third cancer diagnosis, at age thirty-one, catapults the author into unknown territory. As she confronts the ravages of cancer, identity and career crises, and depression, Hogan realizes that these challenges present the opportunity to leave behind “normal” life and embrace the longings of her heart and soul—to live a creative, full life as her true self. In Third Time Lucky, she invites readers to transform their own questions from, “Am I enough?” to “Am I enough of who I really am?”

The author will also host a signing at Bookworks in Albuquerque, on Thursday, May 2 at 7 p.m. To learn more about Pasha’s offerings and upcoming April Reiki 1 training, visit See Calendar and Save The Date page 28.
