Johanna Paungger is one of ten children of a farmer in the Tyrolean mountains. She was raised to respect the local wisdom that has been kept alive for centuries and handed down from one generation to the next. When she was young, Johanna’s grandfather took her in as his apprentice and, over the course of many years, passed on the ancient traditions. Her knowledge includes the art of living in harmony with the moon and healing traditions using herbs, color, movement, bodywork, nutrition, and more. In 1983 Johanna began giving lectures with one goal in mind: To keep alive and pass on the ancient knowledge that had been given to her.
Thomas Poppe is the author of more than 20 books and is an Aikido master. With his wife, Johanna Paungger, Thomas has co-authored nine books including several bestsellers that have made her valuable knowledge available to the general public.
