Mark Johnson's book “Life As Play” chronicles his sixty-year spiritual odyssey with some of the most fascinating spiritual teachers of the last half-century. His travels take him from the mountains of Pennsylvania to exotic temples in China, Tibet, France, and eventually to the wild and dangerous hills of Malibu, California. According to Mark, the stereotype of spiritual life is often considered dull, boring, and strait-laced is absurd! In Life as Play, Johnson traces his spiritual development and explains how laughter, fun, sex, chaos, and paradox were instrumental in what he calls 'playing with enlightenment.' Mark Johnson is a semi-retired Tai Ji and Chi Gung instructor and healer. Mark has studied and practiced Eastern Philosophy for over 45 years and has apprenticed with some of the most prominent Vedanta, Zen, and Daoist teachers in the world. He has been a member and research subject at the Institute of Noetic Sciences for nearly 15 years. We hit 500 episodes this week! And we couldn't have done it without each and every one of our listeners, we are so grateful for you! On that note, Dr. Susanne will be taking the summer off from the podcast for some RV travels and a long-awaited trip back to South Korea with her mother! Expect new episodes to come back in the fall, and until then, enjoy your summer!

What if we are able to play a dynamic role in shaping our overall health, and utilize our body’s natural intelligence to activate our inner radiance? What if electricity is the missing element in our current model of health and well-being? Well, we're diving into something new this week on Wellness For Life; tuning the human biofield and using our own electromagnetism to recharge, rewire and raise our voltage! Eileen Day McKusick has been researching the many facets of health and human potential for the past 35 years. In 1996, she picked up her first set of tuning forks and began incorporating them into her massage therapy practice. After witnessing the positive effects on her clients, she began researching the effects of therapeutic sound on the human body and energy field, ultimately creating the sound therapy method of Biofield Tuning. Eileen is also the founder of Biofield Tuning Institute, which conducts grant-funded, peer-reviewed, and published research on the human biofield in partnership with other research organizations. She tells us all about how she got into this practice, how it works, the power of the outdoors, and auras.
