The most profound healing gift of all is found within our very breath. Learn how the flow of breath is directly affected by chronic tensions in the body and in the mind. When breath starts flowing through more of the body, it becomes a direct agent of healing massaging and melting any areas of tension it touches. Experience the healing technique as taught 2500 years ago by the Buddha!
Will Johnson received his B.A. in Art and Archaeology, magna cum laude, in 1968 from Princeton University. Upon graduating, he worked as an art critic for Art News magazine in New York City before moving to the west coast of North America where he began exploring the lived experience of the body and its relationship to conditions of consciousness. He became a Buddhist practitioner in 1972 and a Certified Rolfer in 1976. In the mid 1990s he founded The Institute for Embodiment Training, a teaching school that, through combining Western somatic principles with Eastern meditation techniques, views the body as the doorway, not the obstacle, to personal growth and spiritual transformation. He has written a number of books about the role of the body in spiritual practices, including The Posture of Meditation, The Spiritual Practices of Rumi, and Breathing Through the Whole Body. He travels and teaches throughout North America. His website is www.embodiment.net.
