You don’t have to suffer.
We can help.
Who can participate?
This is for the silent sufferers. It’s for the ones who use their voices, but don’t receive the help they’re asking for. It’s for the ones who don’t have the first idea what they need. This is for the sleepless—the ones who desperately need to rest, and yet are unable to do so. This is for those who rarely, if ever, feel safe. This is for those whose bodies have betrayed them. It’s for the diagnosed, and the undiagnosed. It’s for the ones who bravely face each day without the strength to do so, and it’s for the ones who can’t even begin to do what’s required of them. This is for those in pain—physically, emotionally, mentally—without respite. It’s for the ones who fear that their pain will return, until it does. This is for the ones who have been ignored, forgotten, abandoned and abused. It’s for the ones who have taken care of everyone else’s needs, but their own. This is for the ones who fear that they might not have tomorrow, and it’s for the ones who are afraid that the way they are managing to live will never end. This is for the hopeless, the anxious and the exhausted, and it’s for the hopeful, the determined and the resilient. It’s for the ones who know exactly what is holding them back, and it’s for those who don’t have the first clue why they are constantly afraid.

"Trauma is Trauma."
Wendy Jo Morrison ~ UBU Today Founder
Trauma can be defined as a feeling of helplessness.
This being said, trauma is trauma. Despite the varying degrees of trauma, the fight/fight/freeze process accompanied by the overall feeling of helplessness experienced in trauma is the same.
6/10 & 5/10
About 6 of every 10 men (or 60%) and 5 of every 10 women (or 50%) experience at least one trauma in their lives. *
7 or 8 out of every 100 people (or 7-8% of the population) will have PTSD at some point in their lives.*

For 1 in every soldier who serves in a war zone, 10 children are endangered in their own homes. *
About UBU Today & What We Offer:
Trauma can be devastating, yet it often serves as a doorway or path to personal growth, healing and freedom. Our workshops create an opportunity for participants to uncover and let go of the effects that trauma has on their lives. BioDynamic Breath & Trauma Release System® (BBTR) is a cutting edge approach that combines conscious breathing techniques for therapeutic purposes. BBTR skillfully combines specifically designed breath techniques that incorporate movement, meditation and sound to encourage the gentle release often unconscious trauma stored in the body.
UBU Today's approach supports the gentle release and integration of trauma, rather than simply to relive it or become overwhelmed. By allowing the body to have experiences that deeply and viscerally contradict the helplessness, rage and collapse that result from trauma one is able to regain self mastery and STRONG personal power.
Healing or overcoming trauma requires a process of helping a client’s autonomic nervous system turn off the threat alarm and allows release of trapped emotion and anxiety held in the body. Pain is often revealed as an indicator related to unresolved trauma & extended exposure to stress.
Trauma Release Exercises (TRE), like breath work, help the body release the deep muscular patterns of tension, stress and trauma. TREs are used in events where the person was not fully able to process the situation and its impacts on their system. Therefore, trauma release is necessary to complete “the processing” to release tension in the body.
This work is designed to break through the many layers of body armoring thus releasing mental, emotional and physical tension from your body and mind. As a result, BBTRS may reduce and clear one’s deeply imprinted primal, religious and societal conditioning. BBTRS enables you to experience the full range of sensations and emotions available to a human being, while expanding your capacity to support and contain the free flow of vital energy.
Research from new disciplines has revealed:
Trauma produces actual psychological changes including a recalibration of the brains alarm system, an increase in stress hormone activity, and an alteration to the system that filters relevant from irrelevant information.
We now know that trauma compromises the brains area that communicates the physical embodied feeling of being alive.
These changes explain why traumatized individuals become hypervigilant to threat at the expense of spontaneously engaging in their day to day lives.
It may also help us understand why Traumatized people so often keep repeating the same problems and have such trouble learning from experience.
We now know that their behaviors are not the result of moral failings, or signs of bad character or lack of willpower, they are caused by actual changes in the brain.
These vast increases in our knowledge about the basic processes that underlie trauma has also opened up new possibilities to palliate or even reverse the damage. We can now develop methods and experiences that utilizes the brain's natural neuroplasticity to help survivors feel fully alive in the present and move on with their lives.
There are fundamentally three avenues for addressing trauma:
1. Top down by talking, reconnecting with others and allowing ourselves to know and understand what is going on with us while processing and memory of the trauma.
2. By taking medicines that shut down inappropriate alarm reactions or by utilizing other technologies to change the way the brain organizes information.
3. Bottom up - by allowing the body to have experiences that deeply and viscerally contradict the helplessness, rage and collapse that result from trauma thereby regaining self mastery.
Often a combination of all three of these is necessary. UBU Today focuses on allowing the body to have experiences that deeply and viscerally contradict the helplessness, rage and collapse that result from trauma thereby regaining self mastery.
BioDynamic Breathwork is different.
The BioDynamic Breathwork & Trauma Release System® 6-Element approach empowers your body’s natural process for healing from start to finish, releasing chronic tension and restructuring your systems on a cellular level.
Attending a UBU Today Workshop will leave you with the ability to intimately connect with yourself and others. This will bring great clarity and allows you to feel the full range of emotions and sensations you are capable of as a human being.
BBTRS® calls on the power of all of the body’s systems. Our 6-Element approach supports your body’s unique needs at any given moment. This creates a flexible and dynamic experience that goes deeper than traditional therapies.
Offering these often intangible, natural and deeply transformational experiences in the U.S. is what makes UBU Today unique in the arena.
