FOREWORD REVIEWS by Melissa Wuske Jan/Feb 2022: “The book has a calm pace, augmenting the tone of its instruction. The pages are roomy with beautiful, restful botanical accents. Each chapter ends with breathing essentials: a key idea plus a BLIPP—Breath Literacy’s Instant Power Practice—to make sure learning goes from the mind to the body. Breath Is Life is a health book that shows that new life is as close as your lungs.”

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 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.
