June Featured Peace Guests
Lorraine Moller and Harlan Smith run the Khemu Institute based in Boulder, Co for research into biofield technologies, different energy modalities and consciousness explorations. Lorraine was a professional marathon runner for many years, winning the Boston Marathon and competing in four Olympic Games, and won a bronze medal in the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona. After retirement Lorraine and Harlan met an Australian healer named Cameron Dawson in 2004. He astounded them as they witnessed seemingly miraculous and instant structural changes in person after person. On word of mouth alone, people lined up for a session with Cameron. Cameron taught his system of energy balancing derived from his lifetime study of native and ancient healing modalities to a group including Lorraine and Harlan. Cameron has passed on shortly thereafter. Today Harlan and Lorraine use The Dawson Program to work with both athletes of all abilities, as well as any person interested in living to their fullest potential.
