The Cloudwalker Mind/Body Healing System

John Walcott has been training and practicing the mind /body healing arts for over 40 years. As a child, he suffered from chronic asthma. This led him to enroll at a local Chinese Martial and Healing Arts School in New York and healed himself completely. His passion for healing others was ignited and he began studying Chinese, Japanese, West African & Brazilian Martial and Healing Methods over the next 40 years.


John is the founder The Vero Beach Qi-gong Society and the Cloudwalker Mind/Body Healing System, a synthesis of 3 decades of practice. John has created an accessible method of practice which allows the general public to enjoy the healing opportunities available in a multi–modal approach of Qigong & Tai Chi practice. He has taught his methods to individuals of all ages from toddlers to seniors; among them, at-risk youth, immune challenged oncology patients, the chemically dependent in prison programs, Parkinson and Alzheimer patients, and recovering heart patients, just to name a few.
