The people you love are 64.37% water. Actually, the people you love are 99.9999% empty space… (since the atoms we’re made of are mostly empty space). Furthermore, science says, you are literally made of light and consciousness, born from the bellies of stars, embodying the infinite energy of the universe, eternally connected to everything else. You are unlimited awareness residing temporarily in a physical body. Wow! Why then, instead of unlimited, do we often feel helplessly trapped in the limitations of our complicated lives-with all our fears, disappointments, and heartaches? Imprisoned by complexity, we’ve nearly forgotten our true nature-even though… Read more.

Dr. Christine Ranck is a trauma therapist and psychoanalyst in NYC. Using state-of-the-art, fast and powerfully effective mind-body treatments, EMDR and Brainspotting, she specializes in healing the effects of profound trauma, and in creativity and performance enhancement for artists and performers.

Powerful images, penetrating questions, and the Get Ignited! Bilateral Soundtrack—soothing music and nature sounds that oscillate back and forth instead of stereo, stimulating both sides of the brain—force your brain to communicate with itself differently, facilitating a trip into yourself unlike anything you’ve experienced before.
Dr. Ranck has brought her Ignite Your Brain, Change Your Life” talks and workshops all over the US. Her ground-breaking work has been featured in Time Out Magazine, The New York Times, NY Post, on radio, in several documentary films, and on many national talk shows, including “The Today Show.”
Dr. Ranck says: “We are all geniuses of creativity, adaptation, and survival, but we consciously use only a fraction of our brain’s awesome power.
“Our logical, protective brain is designed to see danger and invoke fear everywhere. Traumatic events, especially in childhood, cause us to shut down our overwhelming awareness and feelings—preventing us from being shattered. We gradually lose touch with ourselves and our power.
“We now know that the brain is highly responsive to any right-left stimulation of the body. For example, when we walk or run, our feet are continually right-lefting (called “bilateral stimulation”), forcing the right and left brain hemispheres to communicate back-and-forth, which dramatically increases insight and creativity. (How often do we have Ah-ha! moments, or feel better when we walk? That’s because of bilateral stimulation!)
“Bilateral stimulation is incorporated into trauma therapies EMDR and Brainspotting (through eye movements or oscillating sound-effects) to quickly resolve the symptoms of trauma. Although we can’t change our past, we CAN change the limiting beliefs we carry from our past—at the cellular level. Then our flexible, genius brain creates new neural pathways to support that transformation from fearful to limitless.”
