Laurie Ellis-Young Birthday Fundraiser - A Huge Success!

This year Laurie asked for donations to fund a 5-day in-person Train-the-Trainer
workshop in Cyprus for exiled Ukrainian psychologists.

Co-authors Laurie Ellis-Young and George T. Ellis PsyD wrote much of their book, Breath Is Life TAKING IN and LETTING GO: How to Live Well, Love Well, BE Well while living in Ukraine from 2016-2021 while Dr. Ellis worked for The Organization for Cooperation and Security in Europe (OCSE) establishing a mental health program for OCSE Peace Monitors and staff working in critical situations throughout Ukraine.


Since the war started in February, Ukrainians have experienced devastating war-related atrocities and trauma. Psychologists, many of whom are now exiled all over Europe, are traumatized themselves yet continue to help people as best they can.


In response to this grave need, Dr. George and Laurie started offering weekly zoom sessions to support these struggling mental health professionals. Participating psychologists benefitted from online sessions so much that they asked Dr. George and Laurie to help accelerate their learning with in-person training at a central location in Europe.


Costs seemed prohibitive, so just before her birthday in August Laurie put out a call for donations and within a short time over $10,000 was raised to support an in-person workshop in Cyprus.


Ukrainian Psychologist and participant Natalie Verzun wrote,

“I am very grateful to my American colleagues for such a unique training that is so desperately needed for Ukrainian professionals right now. The deep dive into neuropsychology with Dr. Ellis and learning stress-reducing breathing techniques from the inspirational breath pioneer Laurie Ellis-Young was beyond my expectations.”


Laurie and Dr. George are delighted with the outcome, and deeply grateful to the communities that helped make it happen. Their work continues and ongoing support is greatly appreciated. If you would like to help, please consider donating.

Breath is Life combines ancient wisdom, stories and leading-edge neuroscience to help you harness the remarkable gift of your own breath.


“. . . artfully written, filled with inspirational anecdotes and moving vignettes while being totally grounded in scientific research.”  – Robert Hetzel PhD, former director AES (American Embassy School) India


Laurie Ellis-Young and George Ellis

Laurie EllisYoung MTC, SYT, founder of Breathe The Change LLC, and cofounder of the nonprofit BreathLogic, and George T. Ellis PsyD, LP, discovered the extraordinary power in the ordinary breath through different paths.


Laurie was drawn through yoga, meditation, and trekking in the Himalayas and Andes. George was attracted by scuba diving and neuroscience research. Experiences working with diverse populations on five continents convinced the authors that breath awareness and breath practices can radically transform and enhance people’s lives and organizational systems.
