    This was great interview. Small world moment: I first met Bill in 1982 when I moved to San Diego to study Taoist HEaling with John Davidson at the Taoist Sanctuary, after attending the IPSB massage school branch in Los Angeles! It was great to see and hear him.

    1. Small world indeed! I was very lucky to have him as my instructor. Doubly so to have him on the episode. Thanks for sharing!
