Johanna Paungger in 1983 began giving lectures with one goal in mind: To keep alive and pass on the ancient knowledge that had been given to her. Her husband, Thomas Poppe, is the author of more than 20 books and is an Aikido master. Together they have co-authored nine books, including several bestsellers that have made her valuable knowledge available to the general public. Visit www.birthdaycode.com.
