Lewis Harrison is the fifth and the current master teacher at the Natural Healing Academy.
Harrison was born to middle class, Jewish parents of polish ancestry in the Bronx in New York City. He contributes many early influences in his development as a practical philosopher, including spending weekend after weekend with his mother in the museums and concert halls of NYC, taking in natural history, light opera, classical music, modern art, and Jewish history.
There was never any focus to it. It was just her passion for knowledge, art, and culture and her desire to share this with me that had us going from place to place. – Lewis Harrison
His father spent two years at the Julliard School of Music where he studied violin. Harold spent considerable time in Harlem as well as at a resort in the Catskills, owned by Clayton ‘Peg Leg’ Bates (1907–1998) an Afro-American entertainer who owned and operated the first Black Country Club in Ulster County in the heart in the Catskill Mountains “Borscht Belt” of Jewish resorts. Harrison admired his father for his “out-of-the-box” thinking, and both his parents for their natural way of being fair and kind to others, regardless of their race or disabilities.
Harrison is the author of Live like a Millionaire on $17,000 a Year, and has also contributed to The Speaker Anthology, a book of true stories intended to motivate and inspire others.
