Her loving and gentle support helped me to resolve abuse and food issues. Thanks to Ellen, I have learned so much about myself and how to make the most of my life. The lessons and strategies I have learned from Ellen have helped me through many a challenge. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Ellen privately and in groups.

the changes you want. She has the most gentle way about her. Being with her for a whole week you realize all of the gifts inside of you. And she’s lots of fun.

You have provided a meditative reading and retreat experience that guides the readers on their journey towards inner freedom.

“Be Happy No Matter What is a book about self-empowerment. It speaks to the truth that, to a large degree, what we accomplish in our lives is a function of how we feel about ourselves. Ellen offers techniques to identify and change core self-concepts, to connect with our Inner Wisdom, to be fully present, to choose happiness, to be the author of our lives, and to make it a best seller. It is an easy read packed with pearls of eternal wisdom which, when applied, can’t help but improve the quality of our lives.”

I have to say that I couldn’t put it down. I let the words wrap around me like a warm blanket of encouragement and clarity to find my way.”
