About Lionel


Lionel Gougne is a a spiritual and freedom teacher and a health practitioner trained in craniosacral therapy and osteopathy (“With the lightest touch, the most powerful healing" - Japan Times, 27/5/2006). He is the founder of the "Oneness Practice" - a practice similar to, but different, from meditation - that empowers people to be more relaxed and healthier, feel better and free themselves by simply raising the Oneness vibration in their body. He also teaches relaxation and movement classes to release physical, emotional and mental blockages and develop natural body movement, dynamic relaxation, awareness, intuition, and freedom of the mind.

His activity started with a successful professional shift from law to healing after graduating from Yale Law School and being an attorney-at-law in New York. One day, reading the book Somato-Emotional Release by Dr. John Upledger, D.O., he decided to let go of everything to help others "be themselves" and thus be free. He studied craniosacral therapy, somato-emotional release and osteopathy at top institutions in the U.S., France and Japan and opened his own clinic in Tokyo and Berlin. In 2014, he developed a self-healing modality called Emotional Gates Therapy™ that is now incorporated in his Oneness curriculum to enable people to identify and release, by themselves, hidden emotional and subconscious blockages affecting their well-being and health.

Observing that therapies can only go so far because they only work within duality and its endless flow of issues, "imprints" and past, and that they do not give the keys to the spiritual dimension for liberation and total self-fulfilment, Lionel developed an original curriculum based on spiritual teachings that few people know, his own discoveries and his 14-year experience as a health practitioner. He teaches the Oneness curriculum and freedom of movement classes in London, Geneva, Berlin, Paris, Brussels, Singapore and online as well in addition to private sessions on Skype.
