You deserve to be richly compensated for your work 

You know it’s time to be bolder, play bigger and share your gifts 

I’m here to help you get there

I'm Johanna Alper, founder of Medicine Buddha Coaching and the creator of The 5 Elements of Prosperity for Holistic Business Success.

For the past 40 years, I've had a successful 5 Element Classical Acupuncture and teaching business. I understand the challenges you face in growing your business. Today, I‘m on a mission to help healers and heart-centered entrepreneurs like you attract more clients, create prosperity and make the impact you’ve come here to make. 

Yes, you’re here to heal the world, I’m here to help - But how did it all start? 

After teaching acupuncture for many years, my heart ached seeing talented graduates failing to successfully launch their healing practices. Most healers have incredible gifts, but lack the entrepreneurial skills to create a successful practice. Unfortunately, these skills are not taught in our healing schools. My passion for helping other healers succeed grew to the point that I needed to do more. I embarked on a journey to master spiritual business coaching and I never looked back. 

With my background in 5 Element Classical Acupuncture, knowledge of Chinese Principles of Success and 50 years of compassion meditation training and teaching, I realized my unique brilliance lies in using the magic of Nature's 5 Elements to help my students and clients thrive and succeed. Your business is a living system too! By applying the success principles of the 5 Elements to the areas of business that bring in revenue, you can have a thriving practice.

  • I enjoy classical and world music, art, and hiking with friends 
  • I started practicing mindfulness and compassion meditation in 1971, began teaching in 1973, have been on numerous solitary retreats up to a month, and led a 30 day meditation intensive in 1982
  • My clients’ well-being and success are my             #1 priority
