Hello, my name is Eric "Leif”Johnson, let me tell you a bit about my background:
My healing journey began when I left my job in 2015 and traveled to Peru, with the intentions of improving my life and transitioning to a career in the Healing Arts. During the months spent in Peru, where some Sacred Medicines are protected by law, I participated in numerous ceremonies and learned from highly skilled shamans and facilitators. My journey continued in the following years as I returned to Peru, and most importantly, in 2017 I became a caretaker at an Ayahuasca center in Brazil.
I earned a certificate of Addiction Recovery Coaching from an organization called Being True To You. That program gave me the skills to help people maximize the benefits of Sacred Medicines when used for healing, life transformations and addiction recovery.
I earned a certificate of Ayurvedic Coaching from Kerala Ayurveda Academy, and then continued my studies with Todd Caldecott at the Dogwood School of Botanical Medicine, a leader in the fields of diet, lifestyle and preventive medicine. Ayurveda is a millennia old system of traditional medicine from India.
I also have a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Science from Oregon State University, and have served 4 years in the US Navy while stationed in Italy.
I spend much time hiking and camping in the wilderness and consider it a necessary factor in maintaining health and balance. I enjoy cooking all my meals using as many local, organic, and whole-food ingredients as possible. My other interests include Kambo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, writing, listening to live music, and international travel.
