My ears are burning.
Born in England in 1823. Taken by father to America when 5 years old.
During the year 1850 he first experienced what he termed "internal
respiration" and founded his first community, which lasted 2 years.
He had discovered the mystery of the breath. In 1859 he was examined by a
doctor who said he " never saw such a capacity for respiration in any other
He claimed to be in touch with the great Adepts of the old Golden and
He later founded The Brotherhood of the New Life in Wassaic N.Y. afterwards
transferred to Brocton.
At the peak there were 2000 people in communities in Great Britain and
He died in 1906.
These communities were notorious for their 'free love' nature, but this
distracts from the real knowledge Harris possessed.
The poem part of which I posted before, runs to 10,0000 lines.
