About The Book

The Code introduces readers to an enriching and timeless tradition practiced for centuries in the Western Europe. Going beyond simple numerology and mystic numbers, The Code offers a practical guide to discovering your personal tendencies, choosing a career, raising children, navigating relationships, and living a fulfilling, healthy life.

Each number in your birthdate has its own unique meaning and secret attributes that influence your abilities, personality, and relationships. By integrating the power of your birthday numbers with corresponding colors, the number wheel vividly shows you how to find balance and harmony, unearth your hidden talents, and navigate daily life.

For generations the number wheel has been used by the people of Tyrol to help raise children, choose a profession, learn about proper nutrition, treat illness, and make choices that promote physical and emotional well-being. The Code offers time-tested indigenous knowledge that has been effectively used for centuries.

About The Authors

Johanna Paungger is one of ten children of a farmer in the Tyrolean mountains. She was raised to respect the local wisdom that has been kept alive for centuries and handed down from one generation to the next. When she was young, Johanna’s grandfather took her in as his apprentice and, over the course of many years, passed on the ancient traditions. Her knowledge includes the art of living in harmony with the moon and healing traditions using herbs, color, movement, bodywork, nutrition, and more. In 1983 Johanna began giving lectures with one goal in mind: To keep alive and pass on the ancient knowledge that had been given to her.

Raves and Reviews

“Simple, yet profound ancient wisdom that can easily be applied to everyday life. The information rings so true, it’s as if the book was written specifically for me."
—Perry Finkelstein, independent producer, World Harmony Unlimited

The Code captivates from the start. Its message is as old as the hills and as new as the dawn. It will help you understand who you are, why you are here, and how you fit into the larger scheme of life. It can change your world or, at the very least, your worldview. But be forewarned: once you pick it up, you won’t be able to put it down!”
—Saskia Shakin, The Keynote Coach, author of More Than Words Can Say

"A very readable and well-organized text that should become a standard reference for anyone interested in a holistic … approach to living."
—NAPRA Review

"In the course of my decades of work as a dentist and dental surgeon I have come across many strange facts and circumstances which have been largely connected with certain rhythms in nature. The great enlightenment came with Johanna Paungger and Thomas Poppe, whose books answered in a few hours of study almost all myquestions. Today their contribution to the medical profession in general cannot be appreciated enough. Certainly it will take some time until all of my colleagues in the medical profession have accepted that this simple and age-old knowledge is valid and useful. But that’s a natural process: The better sometimes has to wait until the pride of the good permits to open its doors."
Dr. Siegfried Bücherl, president of the German Dental Medical Association
