    Instructor Bio:

    Bizzie Gold is regarded as one of the top personal development and wellness experts in the world and currently sits on the board of SIRA [ Self-Injury Recovery Anonymous ]. She is the Founder of Break Method, a comprehensive system of structured self-inquiry tools, online courses and in-person curricula created to rapidly rewire the emotional response system and stop systems of behavior that create chaos and relationship friction. She has been a featured workshop presenter and speaker at some of the most prestigious wellness institutes including Omega Institute, Kripalu and 1440 Multiversity. Gold has also appeared on The Dr. Oz Show, TODAY, E!, Buzzfeed and the Huffington Post  among others to discuss her unique approach to rapid emotional repatterning that has garnered widespread Hollywood and media praise. 

    Gold’s work presents thought-provoking insights on the causal relationship between childhood emotional patterning, subjective perception of reality and behavioral expressions in adulthood. With a background in hypnotherapy and energetic anatomy, Gold has created a process that allows students and practitioners to access important information from the subconscious without being blocked or mislead by the client’s self-deception protective reflex. Break Method helps clients and practitioners assimilate diagnostic patterns that inform the rewiring strategy for a 5-part brain constellation of chemically influenced behavioral expressions. Gold’s emotional repatterning system has over 3,000 graduates in 20 countries and a variety of psychologists, psychiatrists, naturopaths, social workers and professional counselors dedicated to bringing Break Method into the mental health sector worldwide. 

    Gold is host of top-rated podcast The Modern Good where she explores a variety of macro-level mental health and sociological issues with a motivational twist as well as consistent guest on top mental health and wellness podcasts. She is also the author of the best-selling book The Self-Study along with being a consistent presence as powerful motivational speaker on biohacking stages and mental health seminars worldwide.
