Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Michael didn't just "fall down", he full on "wiped out", figuratively and literally!” —David Groves, Yoga Teacher.
"My colleague and mentor for 12 years, Michael is one of those rare individuals who walks the walk and talks the talk. I aspire to be like him in my own daily teachings and practices to emulate his wholeness." —Amy Pittelkau, Yoga Teacher
"In a world full of new-age nonsense, Michael is a true gem. He shines with integrity, compassion and real-life wisdom. Actually walking the talk he continues to bless us all; thank God Michael has finally written a book!" —Jessica Biskind, MA, LPC
