The life-changing power of words: Kristin Rivas at TEDxRainier

What idea can transform your world? Through two sentences that changed her life, Kristin Rivas, a hypnotherapist, recounts her journey from crippling mental illness following the death of her sister to healing and liberation, all through the life-changing power of words.

Kristin Rivas is a Certified Hypnotherapist practicing in Seattle. She is a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists, the International Medical, Dental, and Hypnotherapy Association as well as the International Association of Counselors and Therapists.

This talk was given November 9, 2013 in Seattle at TEDxRainier, a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences.

TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
