Healing To Living is hosting the “Rewire Your Brain: One Thought at a Time” conference, scheduled across Johannesburg (March 19th, 2024), Durban, and Cape Town this May. Respected speakers and authors Dr. Caroline Leaf, Yolandé Korkie (Johannesburg & Cape Town only), Rusty Labuschagne, and Aaron McIlroy (Durban only) each bring powerful testimonies to the conference united by the critical role of their mindset in determining their paths to success.

Dr. Caroline Leaf, a leading neuroscientist and bestselling author, will delve into the science behind the mind-body connection, with a particular focus on how thoughts influence reality. Recently, Dr. Leaf unveiled a groundbreaking app designed to assist individuals in managing stress, anxiety, depression, and toxic thinking—the first brain detox app of its kind. Known as NeuroCycle, and with over 500 000 users worldwide, the app applies Dr. Leaf’s scientifically researched and innovative 5-step approach to help users regain control over their thoughts and lives. Scientific studies have demonstrated its effectiveness in reducing anxiety, depression, and overall mental ill-health by up to 81%. In addition to her app development, Dr. Leaf hosts the podcast “Cleaning Up Your Mental Mess,” contributes to scientific journals, and has authored 18 bestselling books, available in 24 languages. Her expertise extends to teaching at academic, medical, and neuroscience conferences worldwide, reaching diverse audiences eager to learn about mental well-being and brain health. 

Yolandé Korkie, the South African author of “558 Days,” will recount her experience as an Al-Qaeda hostage, shedding light on themes of resilience and forgiveness. From abduction to her eventual release and her husband Pierre’s tragic passing during a failed rescue attempt, Yolandé’s story is one of incredible strength and perseverance. Please note that Yolandé Korkie will only be speaking at the Johannesburg and Cape Town conferences.

Rusty Labuschagne, author of Beating Chains, wrongfully imprisoned for a decade in Zimbabwe, shares a powerful story. He highlights the critical role of the mind in overcoming immense hardships, showcasing its potential as a tool for resilience and inspiration in the face of life’s most challenging situations.

Durban audiences will be delighted to hear from Aaron McIlroy, a South African entertainment powerhouse.  A multi-award-winning actor and comedian, Aaron boasts a string of hit shows like The Loser, Mr Personality, and Defending the Planet (alongside his wife, Lisa Bobbert). 

This conference presents a unique opportunity to learn from exceptional individuals and gain practical tools to significantly improve your mental well-being. Don’t miss this chance to invest in your personal growth and equip yourself with valuable strategies for navigating life’s challenges. The messages of hope, resilience, and transformation have a foundation in Christian principles, but hold universal value that can enrich anyone’s life, regardless of their faith background.
