About Ann

Flowers smilingDo I contradict myself? Very well then, I contradict myself. (I am large, I contain multitudes). 

~Walt Whitman

Well, let’s hope I don’t contradict myself too much, but it could happen. Our collective understanding and my personal understanding of the brain is an unfolding process. And things can arise here, as they do in any field of study that requires depth, which may appear paradoxical. And it’s also possible I may not fully understand or accurately reflect the complexity of what I am referencing.

I’ll also probably repeat myself because I’m a far better processor than I am an information storage device, at least at this point in my life. So be assured I’ll bring in the same research under different topics and may not recall I’ve mentioned it before.

All this is by way of asking for your forgiveness in advance. My goal is that this blog be relevant and helpful. All I want is that it point us in the right direction, towards greater growth and development, more fulfillment, and deeper connections.

  1. I am new to CTI but have been studying self help, empowerment, positive psychology and neuroscience for years. Like Ann, I too use poetry to enhance awareness and personal growth. I would like to share my work with Ann and was wondering if I could request her email address. I have written and self-published two life-changing books of inspiring poetry. I look forward to meeting Ann at her CTI Neuroscience course in February. I have registered with a friend. I sincerely hope that we can connect beforehand.
    Thank you,
