Meet Lou Ellyn

Hi, I’m Lou Ellyn

I am passionate about “finding your voice,” both personal and collective.

As someone who grew up with family alcoholism, I rarely felt safe enough to speak up. Setting boundaries and asking for what I wanted seemed impossible. When I discovered EFT Tapping, I was amazed at how effective, simple, and quick it was. It empowered me and grounded me to speak up in relationships, writing, and public speaking.

I spent years working as a fish and wildlife biologist and writer, seeing the natural world and exploring the Pacific Northwest. Since retiring from that work I have expanded my life-long passion for the outdoors with kayaking, hiking and camping. My 2019 journey on the Camino de Santiago in Portugal and Spain led me back home to a spiritual, contemplative, and deeply curious approach to life that is the backbone of my transformative work for the world we find ourselves in today.

In the last five years, the need to find our voices and to advocate for what matters to us has never been more apparent. We face misinformation, political extremism, racial and social injustice, and the pandemic not to mention climate change. Having inner resources, purpose, and connections with others is essential.

If you felt more grounded, connected and purposeful in your own life, could you inspire love and courage in others?

Benefits to my clients

Clients and students experience greater insight and awareness, a sense of grounding, and an increased capacity to love. They sleep better, generally have less pain, and greater well-being. They recapture their sense of humor and are more present to themselves and others, no matter what’s going on.

You don’t have to wait decades, like I did, to find your voice. You can take advantage of my years of trial and error, training, and amazing 21st century healing tools. Deep inside, you can and will get stronger. Your voice and your life will reflect that.
