Mind Your Own Abyssness (Annamieka Davidson and her mom, the playwright!)
Nancy has given her time, passion and purpose to the members of Eugene Family YMCA for nearly 20 years. Most of that time she has been a volunteer leading EDGU, and bringing this gift to the people of our community because she cares so deeply about EDGU’s impact. Her ability to lead so many forms of group exercise led her to eventually become a paid Y Staff Instructor as well.

Nancy Hopps, nationally-known speaker on stress-reduction and emotional/spiritual well-being, has made one of the best recordings I’ve ever used for relaxation.
I have had a real breakthrough the past two nights with the “Finding the Peaceful Place Within” CD. Thank you sooo much …. I’ve been wanting to find a good CD for a couple of years to help me and this is the first one that has really clicked for me. I feel so grateful. I’m wondering if I could order the sleep one as well?

How were you first introduced to Nancy’s work? I was diagnosed with [liver] cancer almost two years ago. I had surgery about six weeks after I was diagnosed…Some friends brought me [Nancy’s] CD…to prepare for and heal during [and after] surgery….Then once I started healing from the surgery, I had some friends who collected a fund for me to come and work with [Nancy]…It was an unbelievable gift….and so I started coming to work with her… How has your life been impacted by your work with Nancy?…

Most of my clients prefer this [Relaxation/Affirmations Techniques] tape to others we’ve used. The combination of music and voice is very relaxing in itself. I also like the full or minimal tension option…..lots of effective, easily learnable techniques.

Although, as a health educator, I’ve been familiar with relaxation techniques, you added some refinements to my skills – particularly in the way you incorporate imagery. You impress me as having mastery of the material.

I was lying on my bed after abdominal surgery, in pain and feeling very blue, when I began listening to your cd Relax Into Healing: Pain, Softening the Sensations. After listening and participating in the meditation, I felt an incredible feeling of calm and relief come over me. My partner came into the room and I said to her, “I just went from despair and rage to hope and joy.” It really was a major turning point and one that lasted for the rest of my recovery. Thank you so much Nancy for of…

Thanks for your beatific voice – so calming and reassuring. I’ll tell you, using this [Relaxation/Affirmation Techniques] tape (since 1989!) is probably one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself! Can you send me a catalogue of other titles?

Nancy Hopps’ recordings are a must if you’re serious about relaxing, healing, and affirming your inner being. They are unique and beautifully done.

This piece of existentialist theatre by playwright Nancy Hopps and directed by David Arnold is sure to inspire self-reflection on the part of the audience. “Mind Your Own Abyssness” is a unique play you will not want to miss!
