Mary Ellen Ciganovich
Mary Ellen Ciganovich is an educator, speaker and writer on the topics of Awareness, Spirituality and how these affect our life situations. She conducts a popular seminar called “Live, Love, and Learn” that teaches people how to take charge of their lives and control their health through the use of medical and alternative choices.

She has been a student of the Bible all her life, holding many Church leadership positions. She has also studied “A Course in Miracles”. “A Course in Miracles” is a spiritual form of psychotherapy that teaches you to utilize the power that is “Holy” within yourself to change your perceptions, learning from your problems instead of fearing them. Mary Ellen utilizes the principles taught in both of these throughout her presentations and writings.

Born on February 22, 1952 in Batavia, New York - Mary Ellen’s father was relocated to Atlanta, Georgia in 1958. She continued to live there and attended the University of Georgia – graduating Magna cum Laude in Education in 1974.

Although her childhood and family life always “looked” picture perfect, it was extremely dysfunctional. Mary Ellen was diagnosed with Petite Mal Temporal Lobe epilepsy at the age of six. During this time in our society epilepsy was misunderstood, so Mary Ellen’s family always instructed her not to tell anyone. She was also told that she could never get married or have children. Needless to say her self esteem took a beating during this time as she did not understand why her own family seemed to reject her. Mary Ellen’s mom and dad fought most of the time when they were together. Holidays were especially frightful as as her parents fighting intensified. Since Mary Ellen wanted to find some peace in her life, she would join various activities just to get out of the house. (Ex. Cheerleading, ballet, modeling for Rich’s teen board of Atlanta)
