A professor of counseling for 21 years in the school of education at the University of Colorado, Gay Hendricks earned his doctorate degree from Stanford University in 1974. Originally trained as a traditional psychologist, a life-altering experience caused Hendricks to rethink his approach to healing patients. Adopting a body-mind integration theory, Hendricks opened the Hendricks Institute to teach people core skills for conscious living. Hendricks is the author of over 20 books in the field of education, transpersonal psychology, and centering, including Conscious Breathing, The Centering Book, Learning to Love Yourself, and At the Speed of Life. His work has also been mentioned or reviewed in numerous magazines and newspapers, including Self, GQ, Psychology Today, Yoga Journal, USA Today, and the Edmonton Journal.
