Dr. John Veltheim
His extensive post graduate studies have included applied kinesiology, bioenergetic psychology, osteopathy, sports medicine, counseling, comparative philosophy and theology. John developed the Mindscape system as a tool to enhance the functioning of the mind. He also developed a system of lymphatic drainage and rehabilitative acupuncture. John has written nine books on Acupuncture, Reiki, and BodyTalk and has specialized in incorporating dynamical systems theory into the medical model and energy medicine.
John and co-founder Esther (who developed the Breakthrough system) have been lecturing internationally for nearly 20 years teaching Mindscape, Breakthrough, Reiki, Advaita philosophy, BodyTalk and life sciences.
Esther was born in Kent, England in 1951. She travelled extensively much of her life before, finally, putting down roots in the United States. As co-founder of IBA, Esther now resides in Sarasota, Florida, home to IBA's head office.
Esther is the developer of the BreakThrough System, a dynamic process of self-inquiry and one of the key Life Science courses taught under the umbrella of the IBA. At present Esther conducts advanced workshops in BreakThrough, both internationally and in U.S.A. She also runs ongoing Instructor Training programs for BreakThrough.
