Introduction After studying physics at the University of Rochester (BS, 1972), John consulted for research groups at Strong Memorial Hospital, the Laboratory for Laser Energetics, and the Physics and Electrical Engineering Departments at the U of R. He continued consulting as a systems engineer through 1997 for many of Rochester’s optics and metrology companies. He earned a Masters Degree in Education from the U of R in 1982. John taught music theory and guitar at Hochstein School of Music, software engineering at RIT, and high school science at The Harley School between 1978 and 1983. From 1976 through 1992 he performed throughout New York and New England as a solo guitarist and collaborated with dance troupes, mimes, poets, improv theater groups, and other musicians. He produced three albums of his own music and two with storyteller Jay Stetzer. Since 1976, John has been an active member of the Rochester Zen Center and then at Springwater Center for Meditation. In 1997, he and his wife, Lana Limpert, began ongoing study with the Advanced Hypnotherapy Training Group of the Forum for Psychotherapy Cybernetics in NYC. For the past decade, hypnotherapy has been John’s entire professional focus.
