ABOUT BRIAN BERMAN
Born in New York in 1949, Brian was deeply affected as a child when viewing images of the Holocaust, wondering through a child’s eyes, WHY? All people are part of the human race, no differences under the skin. It wasn’t until 2002 when he was facilitating a Jewish German Reconciliation Project in Germany, that he realized Hitler had made him, inadvertently, a peace-maker. In 1969, he was trained as a peace marshal by a Quaker group to hold the peace during the Moratorium March in Washington DC. Through a series of violent events, he turned his attention inwards to find the source of peace. In 1970, Berman studied yoga and meditation and began teaching for the Integral Yoga Institute.
