Being born to a Chinese and Filipino family, he was exposed to many forms of yoga, meditation healing and spirituality. What he observed was that many of the deeper teachings were lost through time and many of the methods were somewhat of an art-form but not an exact science.
As a scientist, he tried to change that. He devoted over 30 years of his life to studying life energy and how it affects us in every aspect of our life. He explored the inner workings of various forms of healing, meditation, yoga, qi gong, chai chi, reiki and shamanism to find the essence of truth that weaves through all of these methods.
After his extensive research and with the help of friends and colleagues he started a system of energy healing we call Pranic Healing. He founded the Institute of Inner Studies in 1989 and the World Pranic Healing foundation in 1990. It was his hope that Pranic Healing would alleviate the suffering of man kind. He envisioned a world with a Pranic Healer in each family to help with that.
