Read the full Biography of William Martino
From an early age William Martino had a drive propelling him far and wide in search of answers. The fascination with, geniuses, great abilities and martial arts began early on. Mesmerized by the possibilities of Chi power and mysteries of life he would go into Philadelphia Chinatown by himself at 8 years old. This began his secret world. Meeting with masters of Kung Fu, Yoga and meditation ultimately brought him to an identity crisis many years later. Thinking that fitness was the solution at 15 years old he became the youngest certified fitness instructor in Ft. Lauderdale and worked at Sportrooms Gym. Working with professional athletes at a renown gym began his career as a trainer then working for Bally’s Fitness as a trainer for a few years following 2 years at Sportrooms. Still the search for ‘the chi’ and mysteries of life continued. This inner angst mounted because results were marginal but he was sure that there was a way to cause more amazing results in his own and others lives.
After some college in Maine he returned to his birthplace in Philadelphia and founded a school for martial arts with a community outreach center program. Being over his head trying to keep the streets safe and teach meditation and starting to isolate himself and all sorts of personal problems began and kept. Lost, on the streets, in jails and homeless shelters for many years William thought to himself 'where and who are the real masters of life.' Starting over and becoming a Zen monk under strict discipline for 4.5 years and reading over 1,000 of the best books on the planet hope re dawned.
Next up he became the head of security for a major Transcendental Meditation center in Avon Park Florida founded by the legendary Guru to The Beatles; Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Eventually, he was given access to the most advanced, secret teachings. These same techniques were adopted by many celebrities like Clint Eastwood, Jerry Seinfeld, Oprah Winfrey, Tom Hanks and so many others. It is a science based approach to advanced meditation with measurable results in biology. At this point some real inner change began to gel and he decided to devote his life never looking back. Personal coherence improved in new ways yet once again he seemed there must be more. He was on the same stage with The Dalai Lama in front of over 5,000 people. Advanced private instruction and initiatation with famed Japanese monk Cealo. William went on to leading Sanskrit chanting for 100's of people. The trainings and apprenticeships with world leaders is 'endless.'
*Here's an interesting fact about William. He medically changed his eye prescription twice back to 20/20 defying the odds. He created wellness libraries at senior homes for free. He drove out dangerous people from his town. The events go on and on. Being around him is an experience to say the least.
Both Zen and Yoga seemed dissociative and lacking in practical application to help people’s lives in deep suffering. So, he went back to his roots to learn more about ‘the inner chi’ by becoming the head cook for Master Chen and his core students; Master Chen is the author of ‘The Master Within’ (Which William got published for Master Chen.) Master Chen is a legendary Taoist Priest and Qigong/Kung Fu master who was raised on mount Wudang; the birthplace of real deal ‘Chi Power.’ Master Chen created a sprawling, multi million dollar training facility where William was in the atmosphere of another kind of real master.
Since 8 years old the scriptural teaching of inner qigong has been a constant interest. The true ancient teachings of meditation and inner biomagnetism (chi) development for personal healing and enhanced vitality echo in the lives of real masters of every kind. Real Qigong is entirely different and more effective than what the world see’s as ‘Qigong and he was finally seeing the light of truth by sorting through thousands of years old temple scriptures and living with a living legacy. The echo's of the world were always the same yet he never gave the voice of ordinary people any credence. He would not trade the outer for the inner. Moving on William moved to Crestone, Co. and founded his own retreat center. Crestone was called ‘the spiritual heart of America’ by U.S. news and world report. Over 20 major monasteries of different traditions live in harmony. The very best masters of all sorts of disciplines and wellness therapies live together in a community of tolerance and strength. People come for help from all over the world to this little known community.
Further initiations were completed with The Dalai Lama in person and with whom the Dalai Lama said is ‘The greatest living meditation master;’ Drubwang Rinpoche. Many full retreats and initiations with Ammachi; winner of The Ghandi/King peace prize given at The U.N. by Jane Goodal and Kofi Annon.
Personally training with: Thich Naht Hahn, Cealo and more real masters of life were met with in person for many years to come.
Next William received his Ohikara initiation with Shumei a large Japanese monastery offering a healing technique and simple/effective way of life. Student of Dennis Marshal, who is a direct lineage holder to Shunru Suzuki author of Zen Mind, Beginners Mind. Shumei has many modern buildings, solar power, organic farming…Etc. as do many of the Tibetan, Zen, Yogic, Taoist other facilities all in one little city.
