Grand Master Choa Kok Sui Biography

Grand Master Choa Kok Sui was a healer and Master of Energy in the Eastern traditions. He developed the practice of Pranic Healing to bring wholeness to the physical body, and the concepts of Arhatic Yoga to bring peace to the spirit. Choa’s name is translated as “Fortune of the World.”

Master Choa was born August 15, 1952, in Cebu City, the Philippines. His parents were of Chinese descent and had found success in the business world. Choa read voraciously as a youth, preferring books and studying to playmates and outdoor activities.

Although Choa was raised in an environment of business and absorbed its lessons, he was captured by spirituality, Eastern thought and tales of spiritual leaders. He questioned his parents about figures from the past, such as St. Francis of Assisi, and when he was old enough to attend University he sought out mentors that could teach him more.

Choa had three personal guides on his spiritual path, but his primary teacher was Mahaguruji Mei Ling. Choa believed that the Mahaguruji had been instructing him through eons of time, reconnecting with him across multiple incarnations. While under the tutelage of his mentors during his years of university education, Choa became a yogi.

He also earned a degree in chemical engineering and followed his father’s modern footsteps into business. Although he became a wealthy and successful businessman, Choa ultimately chose to pursue a path of inner growth and the seeking of life’s essential principles.

The search for opportunities to learn from a multitude of practitioners in as many disciplines as possible lead to 40 years of immersion in yoga, Kabbalah and chi kung. Choa studied crystal healing, psychic self-defense, meditation, clairvoyance and feng shui, among many other practices.

From 1983 to 1987, Choa took a break from his intense studies and began to try to synthesize everything he had learned from Mahaguruji Mei Ling and his many other teachers. In these years of reverie and deliberation he originated two systems for the purposes of helping humanity eliminate its weaknesses and embrace its virtues. These systems were Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga.

The practice of Pranic Healing was introduced in his 1987 book “The Ancient Science and Art of Pranic Healing,” later released as “Miracles Through Pranic Healing.” This book saw wide acceptance, being published in 27 languages throughout 40 countries.

Prana is the Sanskrit word for “vital life force.” It is an invisible energy that surrounds and infuses all life, bringing balance and harmony. It is freely available from the sun, air and earth. In historical times only a few noble practitioners were allowed to provide healing through the manipulation of prana. It was Choa’s intent to develop a system that would allow anyone to understand and master the techniques of Pranic Healing in a short time, making the benefits of the practice available to all.

Pranic Healing does not involve touching the patient; it is wholly concerned with the person’s aura, an energy field that surrounds and flows through the body. The principle is that the healing practitioner can detect imbalances in the aura and cleanse them, then draw prana from the surroundings through the aura and into the body, directing it to the area that needs to be healed.

Once it is cleansed and in a state of balanced energy the body has the power to heal itself. Aftercare involves exercise, a healthy diet and calming one’s emotions. Patients who experience Pranic Healing report feeling physically and emotionally balanced, uplifted and alert.

The second system developed by Choa addressed the spiritual rather than the physical well-being. Called Arhatic Yoga, this is a blending of many yogic traditions. It has the benefit of being a program that can be practiced by people of all ages and abilities. The purpose of Arhatic Yoga is to use the virtues of love, intelligence and will to enable spiritual growth.

The practice of Arhatic Yoga involves exercises and meditation to align one's chakras, increase one's mental powers and intuition, and develop control of one’s emotions and improvement of one’s character. The ultimate goal for the practitioner is to make oneself a more devoted servant of the earth and humanity.

Master Choa traveled extensively all over the world for more than 20 years to share and teach his methods. His intent to make Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga easy to understand and learn was triumphantly realized. He was known for being an effective and approachable teacher, giving his students not only the skills they were seeking but an enjoyable and spiritually fulfilling experience.

Master Choa went on to publish 25 more books in thirty languages. These included “Pranic Psychotherapy” in 1990, “Pranic Crystal Healing” in 1996, and “Meditations for Soul Realization” in 2000. He also established more than 100 healing centers in over 90 countries.

Outreach efforts by the followers of Pranic Healing were facilitated by two agencies founded by Choa: the Institute for Inner Studies, founded in 1988, and the World Pranic Healing Foundation, founded in 1990. The Institute was established to serve the Western hemisphere, while the Foundation focused on developing countries. Choa also established the MCKS Charitable Foundation to bring food assistance, medical care and disaster relief to needy areas across the globe.

Grand Master Choa Kok Sui left his physical body on March 19, 2007, in Quezon City, the Philippines. He was 54 years old. Master Choa’s followers believe they understand why he died at a relatively young age. They believe that the healing he imparted to others over his decades of service drained his energy to the point that his body was unable to fight off the pneumonia that he was battling. They also recognize that he could help many more people from the spiritual realm than the earthly realm, and he may have simply chosen to pass on so he could be of greater service to others.

The work of Grand Master Choa is being continued by his disciple and student Master Stephen Co. Master Co teaches Pranic Healing and lectures worldwide on the message of his teacher and the practice of his methods.


  1. Its my karma that introduced me abt this technique. HEartfelt gratitude to the Mother earth and all the gurus whe were behind the scene activating this powerful energy.

  2. I am introduced to panic healing since 1986, i tried to practice to my family and friends when ever healing is needed and saw positive result that was confirmed by my patients. i had been of and on in my practice but i must admit all the major ups and downs in my life and some life challenges that i encountered, the panic healing techniques and teachings are always my easy tools to grab to be resilient and keep going.

  3. There are 8 Master Pranic Healers continuing on this work in the world. Master Co is not the only one, he is simply the most public one. The others have chosen to keep a lower public profile.
    Master Nona Castro oversees Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga in Canada, all of South and Central America, and Italy.
    Master Hector Ramos formerly was in charge of the Arhatic Yoga Ashram near Pune, India, and now oversees a large part of Europe.
    Masters Glen and Marilag Mendoza (who are also medical doctors) oversee the Eastern United States and head up the Pranic Healing Research and Development branch. They are in charge of verifying additional healing protocols as well as conducting scientific studies to increase the public awareness and perceived credibility of Pranic Healing in the west.
    Master Hermie, Master Danny, and Master Faith I do not know as much about, but I believe they are all based out of Asia.

  4. Not sure why he needed to make his own medaloty using plagiarism. Obviously lost his spiritual way to egotism and his ability make a good dollar out it. As per most spirituality healing is very juvenile and also dangerous as he found out. His soul would have been reincarnated into another physical body so why didn’t he stay in the one he had and as he actually got old and wise spread his (unfounded) knowledge. Doesn’t make sense. Having complete many Prsnic Healing Courses all I have seen is egotism, greed .

    • Stephen, do you feel the amazing energy and loving kindness during a Twin Hearts Meditation? I’ve been practice meditation for almost 20 years and never felt anything like this. Tounge at the palate of the mouth vibrationing rapidly, energy rushing through the body, feeling of utter peace after these meditations. Blessing of loved ones and Humanity.. the teachings have no Ego, maybe some people do that try to make it a buisness, but that’s not the teachings.. stay with it my friend..Atma Namaste!

  5. Same experience with it the cause is so noble why they have kept such a high fees it is not affordable to everyone….I came a cross so much of groupism in the world of ph they confuse you with which group to go..ppl are doing business out of it that spiritualism nobility serving i could not find…though the courses are very helpful and good but lot of negativity associated

    • The reason why they are
      The fees are high so that people will give importancr to the teachings, at some point Master gave it for free
      For some like religious people and some can pay it staggardly

      Because they understand the position of those who cant afford.
      As for me my investment is worthy and I am one Pranic Healer who enjoyed and experience a good life from continuing the practice..anyway just explaining and giving light to those bashers . Blessings and love to you. May you be blessed with enlightenment and once you try and expeirinc the pratice your soul will never be the same again! Bliss!! Light, lve and power!
