Pranic Healing was created by a man named Choa Kok Sui, who we call Master Choa Kok Sui, and here on the western half of the U.S., we frequently take classes from Master Stephen Co who is also in charge of the U.S. Pranic Healing Center and co-author of Your Hands Can Heal You. So you will see and hear the term “master” regularly once you take Pranic Healing classes, watch online videos, and read books about about Pranic Healing. You’ll probably hear it once you have even had a couple of conversations with a Pranic Healer about Pranic Healing. Occasionally I see people newer to Pranic Healing react or feel turned off by the term “master.”
This is understandable. It’s easy to imagine a British servant addressing his Lord, “I shall polish the silver at once, Master.” Or a pilgrim or monk groveling, head pressed against the floor: “what shall you have me do, Master?” …as he awaits orders from someone he literally worships.
Neither of these pictures grasps what the term means when we use it in Pranic Healing. I can give you two very short and simple explanations as to what it means and why we use it.
First and foremost, it is a level of certification in Pranic Healing. The first level is Associate Certified, which I and many others have completed. This requires healing 25 different cases/people of a mixture of physical and psychological ailments. 10 of these cases can be simple, like a headache. The rest have to be more advanced, such as a chronic illness.
The next level of certification is called Certified Pranic Healer. For this, you need to complete 40 advanced or chronic cases of healing. The person has to be at least 60% healed of the condition and maintain that healing after two weeks of no sessions for it to count toward either of these certifications.
Senior Certified Healers are, as the Pranic Healing website puts it, “Those who have continued to add to their training and have been working as Certified Pranic Healers for 5-7 years.” There are also Senior Certified Pranic Healing Instructors who have been teaching for a certain number of years as well. I believe there might be another step or two before Master Pranic Healer, but this is all the website tells us right now. Healers beyond Senior Certified are quite rare right now–at least in the U.S.
Master Pranic Healer is another such title. There are just 8 Master Pranic Healers in the world. And that is significant when Pranic Healing is practiced and taught in over 100 countries!
To give an example as to why, let me tell you how Master Co got his title, or certification: He healed someone of blindness in a single session–and in a matter of minutes at that. Permanently. When he told the story to Master Choa Kok Sui, he told Stephen Co that he was now Master Stephen Co.
Why are there only 8 Master Pranic Healers in the world? Can’t anyone keep practicing and gain that in a decade or so? This is where my two simple examples (the certification process, and the miraculous healing) end. There is another piece to reaching such a milestone, because performing consistent, miraculous, permanent, on-demand healing like that requires not only a certain amount of energy running through your system, but certain types of energy.
Both the amount of energy coursing through your system (and consequently, the amount you are able to project for healing) and the types of energy running through your system–or which you have access to–are connected to your level of spiritual development. You simply can’t generate certain frequencies or colors of prana until you reach those levels, just as a 1-year-old toddler cannot reach a doorknob.
Trust me–no matter how many colors of energy you have personally seen or read about, we are talking about ones you do NOT find talked about in books. People who have reached a level of development to have access to these are rare on planet earth right now–hence, just a handful of Master Pranic Healers. So if you do happen to hear what sounds like a slight tone of awe in the voice of a Pranic Healer addressing Master Co during class, you can guess that this could be why.
The first time I got to take a class from him was in 2008, here in Seattle. I was in awe because he was the author of this amazing book I had read, Your Hands Can Heal You. Tom Park, his events organizer at the time, suggested I ask to have my book signed, which I did, and I was even more stoked! But in the last almost 9 years, I have had way more things to be in awe of than that!
Now how do you generate more energy and get access to more types of powerful energy for healing? Lucky for us, Master Choa, founder of Pranic Healing, left us an entire system in place so we could learn to do so. It’s the entire purpose of Pranic Healing: Learn to heal, become as powerful a healer as you can, and help as many people as you can.
After you learn Pranic Healing, you can take classes to hasten your spiritual development and massively strengthen your energy field. These classes are part of the Arhatic Yoga system (you can search for these classes on the Pranic Healing website, http://www.pranichealing.com/events). After just a few years of practicing the meditations and other practices of Arhatic Yoga, your energy field will most likely be a few feet bigger in diameter–or more–than it was before. This makes your healings significantly quicker and deeper. And that is just the tip of the iceberg….
We refer to Choa Kok Sui as “Master Choa Kok Sui” because there’s a lot of syllables there already, but there is one last level of mastery called Grandmaster. Master Choa is the one and only Grandmaster of Pranic Healing. What could he do that even the 8 Master Pranic Healers of the world cannot do? I’ll leave that exploration up to you to discover through the Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga classes. There are many students around who have taken classes with Master Choa (also abbreviated GMCKS or MCKS) who would love nothing more than to share those with you!

GMCKS left his body 10 years ago, but lucky for us, he left dozens of books and classes to share with us everything he possibly could so we could help as many people as possible. I hope you will join me in that goal….
