Alina is an award-winning artist, writer, Reiki healer, and the creator of Brain Gardening. During a series of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs)—including divorce, natural disasters, and a familiy history of addiction—Alina developed lifelong anxiety and health issues associated with a maladaptive stress response. Art was a beautiful buffer, but that outlet also became impacted by declining health.
Through applied neuroscience based on the principles of neuroplasticity, Alina has sowed seeds of hope and encouragement in her mind, weeded out behaviors that were established during a state of survival, and allowed her true self to emerge separate from any trauma. More than 50 chronic health issues have resolved since she began neural retraining in Late 2018/Early 2019.

Tending to the garden served as a restorative activity for me where I drew great inspiration for my own journey in “brain gardening™” or rewiring my brain. It was a restorative practice of mindfulness, connecting to nature, and just witness the magic of growth. I gave me a sense of hope and also led to being more aware of ways I could elevate mood and absorb myself in something that was invigorating.
