About Author

Will Johnson received his BA, magna cum laude, in art and archaeology from Princeton University in 1968. After writing art criticism in New York for several years, he moved to the west coast, where he became a Buddhist practitioner in 1972 and trained as a Rolfer in 1976. Over the years he came to understand that the body was the doorway, not the obstacle, to personal growth and spiritual transformation, and that the worlds of somatics and dharma practice each possessed a kind of missing link to the other’s path of inquiry. In 1995 he founded The Institute for Embodiment Training, a teaching school that combines the orientation of Western somatic therapy with Eastern meditational practices.
