Ignite Your Brain, Change Your Life
with Christine Ranck
The human brain is the most complex object in the known universe. It has as many neural connections as there are stars in the infinite night sky. Packed into that mute, tofu-like, pinkish-gray lump in your head is a greater density of orderly design than exists in anything else, anywhere. Our brain makes it possible for us to travel to the furthest reaches of the cosmos, and change our brain’s own anatomy, just by using our imagination. It can examine its ability to be conscious—by using its own consciousness. No light ever directly reaches our brain, and yet the colorful world it creates for us is magnificently lit by the golden glow of a candle’s light or the fireworks of a pink and orange sunrise. Owning one of these unbelievable brains makes each and every one of us a genius of creation, adaptation, and survival.
And as if that’s not enough, science now tells us that at the bottom of everything, we (and our brains) are made of star-stuff, composed only of light and energy, and connected to the limitlessness of the entire universe—that quite literally resides inside each of us.
Yet we only use a small portion of that awesome power to solve our problems and live happily and creatively.
The latest research proves that our brain is malleable (called “neuroplasticity”), and capable of changing (and improving) right up until we die. In this experiential class, you will learn and practice with tools that activate and make dramatically expanded use of this flexibility.
Right now, each moment, your brain is creating your reality—everything you experience in your world—and doing it all from the inside out. But it frequently doesn’t feel that way, because it feels more like things “happen to us”—from the outside in. Much of that is an illusion.
Each of us has the power to change how we experience our lives. For example, we can’t change what happened in our past, but we CAN change the beliefs and meanings that we take away from our past, that often affect the way we feel in the present, causing us suffering, and blocking us from growth.
Traumatic events and challenging environments, especially in childhood, often cause us to shut down and cut off our overwhelming feelings, to prevent us from being shattered. But as a result, we often gradually lose touch with important parts of ourselves—and in so doing, also lose touch with our limitless nature.
So we’ll use several state-of-the-art techniques, including an insight-boosting audio/visual method—adapted from two powerful and effective mind/body trauma therapies, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and Brainspotting—that get deep into your system, forcing the brain to communicate with itself differently, thereby uncovering and re-working the negative beliefs that have been secretly blocking you from getting what you want in life.
Then—just like resetting a thermostat—your flexible, genius brain can respond to those changed beliefs by creating new neural pathways that support a different way of thinking about and experiencing your life, with more happiness and success, less fear and suffering.
And when your inner vision changes, everything in your outside world is also transformed.
So if you want to change the patterns in your life, find effective resolutions for your problems, have more aha! moments, or get internal guidance about a direction to move forward, this course will teach you how to access your deepest brain to discover the answers that are already there waiting inside you.

Ignite the Genius Within: Discover Your Full Potential by Dr. Christine Ranck
About Christine Ranck
Christine Ranck, PhD, is co-author of the Amazon #1 Bestseller, Ignite the Genius Within. A trauma therapist and psychoanalyst in private practice in New York City, Christine specializes in working with survivors of profound trauma, as well as in creativity and performance enhancement for professional and non-professional artists, performers, and athletes.
Dr. Ranck is a nationally known motivational speaker on freeing creativity. Her ground-breaking work in healing trauma and enhancing creativity has been featured in numerous magazines, books, on radio and television, and in several documentary films. She has appeared on many national talk shows, including The Today Show. Christine is also a professional singer whose pop vocal trio, The Janes, performs with orchestras all over the world. www.ChristineRanck.com
Dr. Ranck is a perpetual brain and quantum physics “student.” She earned a PhD from the International University, a Psychoanalytic Certificate from the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy, a Masters degree in social work from Hunter College, and Bachelors degrees from both the University of Rochester and the Eastman School of Music. For many years she was part of the St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital Rape Intervention Program in NYC, providing emergency care and treatment for rape survivors, as well as the volunteer director of Amnesty International’s East Coast speaker’s bureau. She is also a self-defense expert and advocate for women’s empowerment. Since 9/11 Dr. Ranck has treated hundreds of firefighters, police, and survivors of the World Trade Center attack. She is part of a select team of volunteers who give daily educational tours of Ground Zero as part of Tribute NYC, a visitor and learning center that opened on the site in 2006.
Christine is also a professional singer whose pop vocal trio, Jukebox Jane, performs with orchestras all over the world. Highlight experiences of her life include performing in the first theatrical tour of the Arctic Circle (in the winter!), and working with Earthwatch, tracking and rescuing endangered orangutans in the jungles of Borneo.
Using EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) a rapid-acting and highly effective trauma therapy, Christine often saw results with her clients that astounded her. Adaptations to the process seemed to give them access to creative parts of themselves that had been hidden away because of trauma, but were secretly blocking them from getting what they wanted. Once fully reconnected with themselves, her clients were literally making transformative quantum leaps. Christine set about to creatively heighten those results, and Ignite the Genius Within brings this unique process to the general public. www.ChristineRanck.com
Praise for Christine Ranck
“This is not a book in the usual sense, more an adventure into your own powers of creativity. You will amaze yourself.”
—Sir Ken Robinson, World Creativity Expert
“I have used "Ignite the Genius Within" for about a month now. The results are magical. Most notable are the changes that I’ve seen in myself at work. I was being bullied by three co-workers who had been in our office forever. .. The real magic is that not only were there definite changes in me, but my co-workers have all noted the "positive changes" in the atmosphere at work! One person can start something good that lets in a crack of light and draws other people to it.”
“Within five to ten minutes, following very minimal instructions, I found myself lost in an exercise for almost an hour which freed me from a persistent blockage to personal growth that I had carried with me all my life. This course synthesizes the science and metaphysics that are the key to this technique, and makes it totally accessible for the average person.”
"With this revolutionary book, Ranck and Nutter offer up a profound tool for anyone feeling stuck in life or art. It is impossible to open Ignite the Genius Within without experiencing a seismic shift in how you are thinking, feeling, and ultimately, creating. Grab headphones, flip to a page, and prepare to grow beyond where you even thought possible."
—Emma McLaughlin, co-author, The Nanny Diaries
Never one to be able to meditate, the most surprising thing happened to me when I sat down with this book and soundtrack. I was actually able to quiet my mind enough to focus on one thing at a time. This book is unique and quite a great experience.
—Debra Jo Rupp, Actress, That 70’s Show
"I carry this book around with me all the time. I have to be creative at work, so it's my new secret weapon. It is amazing--I've never seen anything else like it out there. I gave up on self-help books a while ago…but this book is totally different.”
“After reading your book, I've realized that my illness was actually beautiful. I am entranced by its possibilities for me. I need to re-establish or maybe learn for the first time that I have much more control of my life than I think I have. Thank you for opening a window back into my own gifts that were right in front of me all along. Life is amazing.”
“I have attended many creative workshops over the years but this book and sound experience has expanded my creative processes more than ever. It shows us how to open our minds, remove the blocks and really use our senses. This brilliant package is a must-have resource for creative thinking.”
—Roisin Fitzpatrick, Ireland's "Artist of the Light"
I don't want to over simplify the program, because I know that it has been the result of much research, but it is very easy and relaxing to use. Wow....this is powerful, life altering stuff!
“Christine....just imagine how much light you are bringing into this world! In today’s fast paced lifestyle....with everything being thrown at us so fast....we need a quick, realistic solution that works. Buddhist meditation helped me to a certain point on the path, but "Ignite” uses modern technology, and psychology to bring about positive results fast. I recommend this program heartily.”
“Is it my imagination or has my boss changed? I have been using the imagery and words to meditate on my work. Is it me, or has my boss suddenly loosened up? I think that the process you are showing with Ignite is changing my attitude. It amazes me that I can get the same results from working with your book, photos and sound as I would in a therapist’s office.”
“This book is totally different. Sometimes when I use it, I instantly figure out the solution to my problem. At first I didn’t believe it, but it has happened a lot. Other times I have just let myself daydream and have gone on trips. Once I traveled out into the stars, and experienced myself as just a thought, which was awesome. When I came back I had a different perspective on things.”
“The material in this book is beautiful, deep and inspiring. But it is the FORMAT that is revolutionary - an interactive, multi-media experience that brings the act of reading to a new 21st century level. A transformational gift is offered to anyone who is ready to ignite!”
—Rev. Deborah Moldow, Evolutionary Leaders Project
