Bio data

Lee Wai Ching

Lee Wai Ching, 54, is an intuitive healer, certified holistic health counsellor and bodywork therapist with over 20 years of adult experience in the field of natural and holistic healing. She is descended from a lineage of healers from both the paternal and maternal sides.

Her great-grandfather was the Chinese physician to the Sultan of Selangor, Malaysia and the Royal household. Her mother was one of the earliest members of the Singapore Natural Health Society in Singapore and environmental activists in the 70s. Her aunts are presently active in the charismatic Catholic movement in Malaysia. She has also inherited the gift of the expression of sacred languages for healing. Her practice in Qi Gong, and Tai Chi began in a temple in Singapore with her mother during her adolescence.

She was initiated into Transcendental Meditation in 1975, furthering her into a journey of exploration of the nature of Consciousness. Her travels around the world as a flight attendant allowed this opportunity to widen. Her expansion in cross-cultural immersion deepened with a year's residence in Europe and 13 years in the Bay Area, California.

She has combined her innate abilities in healing with personal mystical experiences and academic study of the phenomena and practice. Her certification includes accredited undergraduate programmes in Cross-cultural Healing, Creative Writing, and Somatics. Others include Comparative Religions, Language for Healing, Massage Therapy, Vibrational Medicine, Certification in Reiki Mastery and Magnified Healing.

She has also created the StarFlower Infinity Qi Gong and Temple Dance format of movement therapy. She has introduced and implemented this work for the 21 administrative staff of the Ministry of Defence, Singapore.

She also has an accredited graduate certification in Research and Consulting in the School of Transformational Learning from the California Institute of Integral Studies including field experience to China. Her passion is in discovering synergies and correspondences in the human condition and psyche, metaphysics and science that converge to the understanding of universal intelligence and unification.

She prefers working with highly traumatised clients such as sexually abused women and children, and people with difficult life challenges. Her success with physical conditions attests to the appropriateness of psychic/spiritual healing in integrative medicine. The cases and testimonials are being documented.

She still commutes between San Francisco, Singapore, Bali and Europe for her personal and planetary healing work.

The results in her present work in private consultation and her reputation and credibility lead her to be invited to be an Associate Member of the Association of Women Doctors in Singapore, a member of the Executive Committee of UNIFEM (United Nations Community Development Fund for Women), and she was also on a panel of medical practitioners for the Committee for UNIFEM-WHO conference on Women's Health - A Nation's Gain in July 1999.

She has also been invited to sit on the Board of the Executive Committee for Intelligent Communication Institute in California, USA. under the Gateway-Pacific Foundation-Intelligent Communications Institute in the U.S. which has a 501 (c) (3) charity and research status. She is also collaborating with the Global Initiatives for Traditional Systems.

She is presently writing and developing the concept themes and co-ordinating the establishments of healing centres in the Pacific Rim.

She is also an environmental activist in the field of organic/biodynamic agriculture being She was also on a panel of medical practitioners for the Committee for UNIFEM-WHO conference on Women's Health - A Nation's Gain in July 1999.

Her other affiliations are with the Singapore Holistic Health Society as committee member and the Association of Sound Healers.

EarthStar is also a member of ISPA, the International Spa Association. Her work includes assessing spa services and developing holistic programmes for the spas and healing centres.

She has organised culinary and artistic events in San Francisco in Concept and Décor Design, with strong ecological and artistic elements, bringing together artists of the culinary, healing, and visual and performing arts.

She has been interviewed and featured in the media, most recently on "Alternate States" shown on Channel News Asia. There were also guest interviews on two British productions with Paul O'Grady (Lily Savage) and with FHM magazine's Sex columnist. She was consulted on Teen Talk to speak on Holistic Consulting as a new millennium career. Her appearances include on "On the Pulse" on vibrational medicine. She was featured in the February issue of Elle Singapore, presenting the Temple Dance Transformational Movement. The New Paper 5th March also featured her facilitation in Breathwork.

Currently, she is developing training programmes in Subtle Energy Healing for spa therapists/ aestheticians as well as presentations on well being for corporate clients.
