About John and the Cloudwalker Foundation
The Cloudwalker Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded by John Walcott in the year 2013, which sprang off the Whole Body Youth Program, founded in 1988. John, a Master of Medical Qi-Gong and a martial arts Renshi, began his journey into the mind/body healing arts over 35 years ago to address his childhood asthma—which was healed in 3 months with Qi-Gong.
After 3 decades of training with renowned martial artists and healing masters, John has created a multi-disciplinary self-applied approach for enhancing health and wellness. He calls it The Cloudwalker Mind Body Healing System.
Our mission is to introduce ancient healing therapies for preventive care through this system, and as complementary adjuncts to conventional medicine, which are effective and scientifically based.
These health-enhancing modalities are offered at extremely affordable or free rates to at-risk youth, senior citizens, and individuals with health challenges—and on a sliding scale to anyone desiring a better quality of life.
At the Cloudwalker Place in Vero Beach, John and his staff offer outreach programs to all the people of the community, and at every income level. There are no exclusions. From providing a safe space for at-risk youth to learn and grow, to helping senior citizens with mobility issues and veterans with multitudes of challenges—John and his trained staff of instructors and healing arts practitioners have been helping to heal the world through community outreach for over 16 years.
New Location to Reach Even More People
Now, with a new location that’s more than double in size, and with live streaming technology, the Cloudwalker Foundation will be able to reach more people in the Vero Beach community and beyond. Anyone with access to a computer and the internet will be able to participate in classes and workshops at an affordable price.
Practicing The Cloudwalker Mind Body Healing System promotes deeper respiration, increases energy and vitality, improves balance and flexibility, strengthens the cardiovascular system, increases immune system function, reduces inflammation, increases bone density, and creates a deeper sense of peace and well-being.
Programs at The Cloudwalker Place
We offer a variety of classes, services, and products that enhance body, mind and spirit—including yoga, qigong, tai chi, and other martial arts. Services consist of medical qigong, acupuncture, acupressure, massage, nutrition, and other therapeutic modalities. Products, such as martial arts uniforms and tools, educational DVDs, therapeutic oils, herbal remedies, books, and sound healing CDs will be offered both online and at our center.
We offer individual programs and workshops that address such health challenges as arthritis, alzheimer’s, anxiety disorders, cancer, cardiac health, Parkinson’s, COPD, and PTSD. Our outreach programs extend to veteran groups, homeless shelters, nursing homes and kindergartens.
The at-risk youth program is offered year round and provides martial arts instruction, uniforms, field trips and Saturday hot lunches to children from single-family homes in at-risk situations. In addition to instruction in self-care and health mastery, youths in our programs are held accountable for their academic performance. And they literally thrive, instead of hanging out on the streets, because of it.
In addition to this kick start fundraiser, the Cloudwalker Foundation is applying for grants, and accepts the service of volunteers.
