Rick has been a dedicated student of Dr. and Master Sha since 2005. As a traveler on the spiritual journey himself for many years before meeting Master Sha, Rick was able to quickly recognize that Master Sha was no ordinary being. He recalls, “When I first met Dr. and Master Sha in 2005 at the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck NY, I quickly became drawn to his unique qualities. It was the way he carried himself, the way he communicated; confident yet humble; the words that came to mind were sincerity, honesty, integrity, love, compassion and more. It didn’t take long at all to realize who I had in front of me a—a ‘true’ spiritual teacher and healer.”
Soon after meeting Master Sha, Rick was invited to accompany him and 100 other students to China to see and learn from Dr. and Master Zhi Chen Guo, who was Master Sha’s teacher and spiritual father. Rick remembers very fondly, “Those two weeks were just incredible—priceless! Master Guo shared so much invaluable wisdom and practices. That whole experience I will carry in my heart forever. I even received certificates signed by Master Guo for completing various trainings: Body Space Medicine Herbs Practitioner; Guo’s Xiu Lian Practitioner, Body Space Medicine No-Touch Space Massage & Tongue Healing Practitioner.”
For 16 years now, Rick has been empowered with vast wisdom, knowledge and practical techniques by his spiritual father to serve his clients in a most special way. He was trained personally by Master Sha for many years and has received many healer transmissions to help ease the suffering of humanity, including Tao Calligraphy Practitioner and Master Practitioner, Tao Song Practitioner and Master Practitioner, Soul Operation Master Practitioner, Certified Tao Healing Hands Practitioner, and Certified Master Healer and Teacher of Tao Academy.
