Our founder is the internationally acclaimed author of the book, Miracles Through Pranic Healing (3rd Edition).

Master Choa Kok Sui passed from his earthly existence by attaining Maha Samadhi on Monday 19 March 2007, at approximately 8.50 pm Manila time.
At a very young age became interested in yoga, psychic phenomena, mysticism, Chinese Chi Kung and other esoteric studies.

He has spent more than eighteen years researching and studying esoteric sciences that have resulted in the Pranic Healing System teachings.

Along with committed participants he spent several years experimenting to determine the effectiveness and the mechanism of the healing techniques commonly known and used by healers and students of esoteric sciences. He can often be heard saying in answer to a question about a technique or modality “Let’s experiment”. In every course he teaches there are always experiential segments to ensure that the students are clear about the technique and demonstrates through experiments.
Modern Founder of Pranic Healing
Pranic Healing is an ancient science and art that utilizes prana or life energy to heal ailments in the body. Ancient cultures practiced similar modes of healing known as shamanic healing, divine healing, healing by mantra, among others. In its existing form, Pranic Healing has been painstakingly, systematically, scientifically developed, revealed and taught globally by Master Choa Kok Sui.
Similar modalities are called medical qigong or ki healing, psychic healing, vitalic healing, reiki, therapeutic touch, laying of the hand, magnetic healing, faith healing, and charismatic healing. Prana or ki is the life energy which keeps the body alive and healthy. This energy is subtle but pervasive. The natural condition of the body’s energy is balanced. When the body’s prana or ki is too much or too little, it becomes unhealthy. The result is the body is unable to function properly, and eventually presents symptoms of illness.
In Pranic Healing, physical ailments are treated through the subtle energy of the patient using prana thereby assisting and accelerating in several degrees, the body’s natural ability to heal itself. With patience and persistence, Pranic Healing is easy to learn. As simplified by Master Choa Kok Sui, it is a transferable technology. Its principles and techniques can be learned in a few sessions. Students can reach a certain degree of skill or proficiency given enough practice and time. There are several levels of Pranic Healing. Each of the levels is formally taught in internationally standardized modules. Proficiency is gained through constant practice and study.
The first level deals with the principles and basic techniques, enabling the student to heal simple physical ailments. The second level , Advanced Pranic Healing, makes use of advanced techniques and colors, thereby shortening the healing time. Students are familiarized and taught treatments for more severe chronic ailments. The third level, Pranic Psychotherapy, delves into the treatment of psychological aspect of diseases and their causes using even more potent energy techniques. The fourth level is Pranic Crystal Healing. It is the technology of crystals for treatment of severe and chronic ailments.
Each of the first four levels are taught accompanied by books, written by Master Choa Kok Sui as veritable “cookbooks” in the treatment of disease. These courses and books are available in Pranic Healing Centers in 73 countries. The first book, Miracles Through Pranic Healing has been translated into 34 languages to date. The second book, Advanced Pranic Healing into 17 languages. Pranic Healing is not intended to replace orthodox western medicine, but rather to complement it. Countless people and their families have been treated and are enjoying a better quality of life through Pranic Healing.
The Institute for Inner Studies, Inc., the World Pranic Healing Foundation and all the national and local Pranic Healing Centers and Pranic Healing Foundations are committed to the task of continuing Master Choa Kok Sui’s noble work: to alleviate human suffering.
Founder of Arhatic Yoga
For those seekers on the spiritual path, Master Choa has developed a system of practices that leads to greater soul (or self) realization. Arhatic Yoga is non-sectarian, and can become an enhancement to the understanding of any individual willing to accept the existence of a Higher Being or a God. This fantastic synthesis of various yogic practices (from many traditions), introduces the spiritual disciple to a banquet of methods devised to safely accelerate spiritual growth.
Arhatic Yoga is an advanced technique, which proportionally balances aspects of Universal Love, Intelligence and the Will. Practitioners are thereby able to develop higher intuition, advanced mental powers, stable emotions, clearer qualities of good character and are able to move more rapidly toward becoming totally integrated beings of Divine Light.
Master Choa Kok Sui has taught thousands worldwide how to effectively heal themselves and others. The courses he has designed are extremely simple and yet very effective. Because of this simplicity Pranic Healing can be utilized by students as solely a healing modality or can be a way of life. Many of his students continue into advanced courses as they realize that his techniques are accessible, easily understood and extremely powerful and have affected tremendous positive changes in their lives.
The word ‘Master’ follows from the Chinese convention denoting ‘Teacher.’

Master Choa Kok Sui has personally envisioned and directed the formation of a new Legal Assistance Foundation in Manila headed by Attorney Perfecto G. Caparas II. The purpose of this organization is to assist individuals facing charges for victimless offences like vagrancy, solvent-sniffing, illegal possession or use of regulated drugs, illegal gambling, and illegal possession of firearms or deadly weapons. Unjustly detained persons, particularly those facing property-related offences, who have been in detention over a period equal to or more than the imposable minimum penalty for the offence for which they are being detained, are likewise sought to be released from imprisonment by the Freedom Foundation. Prisoners who have already served their sentence or whose probation has already been granted, but nevertheless still languish in jail for one reason or another, are also sought to be helped.

The MCKS Charitable Foundation is another organization set up by Master Choa Kok Sui. The MCKS Charitable Foundation is fully funded by international donations. Less than 1% of received donations is used for administrative purposes, with nearly all going directly to the various charitable activities of GMCKS.
