Dan Schmutz, M.S.
Dan became fascinated with yoga after a mystical “out-of-ego” experience 24 years ago in the presence of a yoga master: Gurumayi Chidvilasananda. After this shaktipat—gift of spiritual awakening—he began to seek out the guidance and initiations of other traditions, including Mentalphysics, Native American shamanism, Tantric Kriya Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Qigong, and Arhatic Yoga. Since earning his Master’s degree in Zoology, Dan has worked full-time as an environmental consultant for the past 19 years, assisting water supply utilities and their regulatory agencies with protecting the environment while supplying sufficient drinking water. In 2007, Dan was introduced to Pranic Healing and began taking classes to learn the Art and Science of Modern Pranic Healing. Although Dan has always had a strong interest in health and has pursued various avenues of self-improvement, Pranic Healing provided many remarkable demonstrations of dramatic and permanent improvement in his own life and the lives of others.
Dan has been a devoted student of Pranic Healing for the past nine years, learning from Master Glenn Mendoza, M.D., Master Marilag, and Master Stephen Co, three of the eight Master Pranic Healers in the world. Dan oversees operations of the Center for Pranic Healing Central Florida and works closely with Melissa Wilder, founder of Pranic Healing Central Florida to promote awareness of the benefits of energetic hygiene, meditation, and energy healing. Dan is certified to teach GrandMaster Choa Kok Sui’s Pranic Healing Level 1, a fundamental course to facilitate self-healing and the healing of others.
