Gay Hendricks, Ph.D., was Professor of Counseling for twenty-one years in the school of Education at the University of Colorado, where he began teaching in 1974 shortly after receiving his doctorate from Stanford University. Gay is one of the leading theorists in the emerging field of body-mind integration and is author of over 20 books in education, transpersonal psychology and centering, including Conscious Breathing, The Centering Book, Learning to Love Yourself, Conscious Loving (co-authored), At the Speed of Life, and The Corporate Mystic.
Gay’s work has been mentioned and/or reviewed in Self, GQ, Psychology Today, Yoga Journal, Delicious, Lotus Journal, Catalyst, USA Today, Edmonton Journal and Springs Magazine. Originally trained as a traditional psychologist, Gay later gravitated toward a body-centered approach after a life-changing experience taught him that when you resist your feelings, you create a state of duality. If you open up to what’s inside—what actually is—feel it deeply and learn to love it, the nature of the feelings change. To read more about Dr. Hendricks, visit his personal site.
