Now, I Am Your Neighbor (table reads, collaborations)
The day I first heard one of your CDs was a revelation for me. I was well into the world of cancer, surgeries, and treatments, but still my favorite CD is Cancer: Embracing the Healing Journey. I now have seven of your CDs and have been in your loving, healing radiance for the past two months. You have become my special angel, and for that – and so much more – I am grateful. Pain has been my constant companion, so your Pain: Softening the Sensations has guided me along the way. I constantly us…
I’m currently in an Outpatient Treatment Program for substance (in my case alcohol) abuse. On behalf of my mother and myself, we THANK YOU so much for the healing work you do. We listen to your cds daily and find them effective and comforting.
Let it go. Since stress is a huge trigger for cravings, learning to deal with it could potentially save you hundreds of calories a day. This will take some practice. You can try deep breathing or visualizing a serene scene on your own, or you can speed things up by buying one of the many CDs that teach progressive muscle relaxation. A good one is Relaxation/Affirmation Techniques, by Nancy Hopps

Your Healing Affirmations & Harp CD creates such a feeling of peace. Thank-you, Nancy, for sharing your healing gifts with us.

My family and I attended your presentation at the U of O Bookstore. We all enjoyed it immensely and we bought your sleep CD. Our 15 year old son has had some trouble sleeping. Sunday nights seem to be the most problematic. The first night he used your CD he slept nine hours!! Many thanks.

I teach seniors, and my whole class loves you…and so do I!….[Also,]my friend fell and broke both her wrists and I could think of no present that would do her more good than your CD. I’m ordering another one for another friend whose husband is in a nursing home; she’s exhausted and again, your CD is the perfect gift.

The techniques on my Deep, Healing Sleep CD seem simple, and you would think you could do them one your own, but having your voice as a guide makes them much more effective. It’s easier if someone else is doing the driving, as it were.

Nancy Hopps’ work is a treasure, as is she! Her meditations, relaxation exercises, and most of all – her beautiful heart – are a gift to everyone who struggles to stay centered and joyful in the midst of life in the ‘Modern Age.’ I highly recommend Nancy’s work to anyone who is working with stress, physical illness, or just a desire to feel more alive, more loving, more connected, and happier.

Relaxation for Expectant Mothers by Nancy Hopps provides pregnant women and their loved ones a powerful means of promoting relaxation and reducing fear.

Whether you desire natural childbirth or seek pain relief with drugs or anesthesia, this recording will invite and assist you in listening to your body, and the child inside you.

I wanted to let you know that the patient that used your [Surgery] CD has done beautifully and had no post-operative nausea or vomiting, and minimal pain. This is remarkable, considering that the size of the tumor removed from her pelvis was so much more than she – or anyone – expected, and was completely embedded/attached to major organs. She has a clean bill of health, positive energy, and is quite active for someone so soon after a surgery like this. Bravo! I have yet to listen to the ent…
