DVD Review: Soul Masters Starring Zhi Gang Sha & Zhi Chen Guo

Soul Masters, directed by Sande Zeig, is a documentary study into the art and science of soul healers. When Dr. Sha did a healing for Zeig’s father, her father in American and Dr. Sha in China, she was inspired to let others know of these masters’ great work.

In Soul Masters, we see these two doctors, one in the East and one from the West, working together and interacting with respect, humor, gratitude, and honor. Master Sha was a student of Master Guo and took his skills into the West where miraculous healings are now achieved as well as in China.

Soul Masters Documentary with Zhi Gang Sha & Zhi Chen GuoThis film documents some of the workshops where these Masters perform healings. In fact, the Chief of Police of the Youth Assembly at the United Nations, dependent on a cane to walk on his arrival, is shown being healed and offering to give his no longer needed cane to anyone who would like to accept it. The DVD Soul Masters documents real people, just like you and me, and does not contain actors. There is no facade about Zeig’s film — it is clearly created on-site during real workshops and shows real healings. It shows the faces of people as their lives are touched and, frankly, actors could not show the joy and expression of relief from pain and suffering in a vivid a manner as these real people.

Master Sha offers free healings remotely via teleconference and Sunday Divine Blessings where free healings are offered for which there is no fee whatsoever. This is his way of honoring the Divine for the gift of his skills and talents.

Other topics addressed in Soul Masters includes karma cleansing, healing of mental burdens from traumatic events of the past, and always focuses on gratitude and caring for the human soul.

The film, Soul Masters, can offer you a glimpse into the world of Chinese methods of healing. The concepts presented in the film are unique and expressed in a way that will touch you. If you have any interest in Qi Gong, Eastern medicine, natural healing, or have reached the end of the road in seeking conventional treatments for a so-called “incurable” or chronic physical problem, this film may open the door for you to blend Chinese Medicine and other Eastern modalities with your current health program. Watch it with an open mind and an open heart and it will touch your heart and soul.

  1. If you watched the Soul Masters DVD and want to develop your ability to heal, use Dr. Sha’s newest book, Soul Wisdom: Practical Soul Treasures to Transform Your Life. Notice I did not say “read this book”. This is definitely an interactive book and your relationship with it will be unique. You can develop some of the remarkable abilities you saw in the film by practicing soul language, soul song, soul dance, soul tapping, soul movement. Enjoy this book!

  2. Dr. Sha has released his latest Book: The Power of Soul.this was accompanied by a “Book Campaign” on Jan 5/6. I wrote the following review on Amazon but within hours the Dr. Sha “professionals” convinced Amazon to remove the review:


    It is with mixed feelings that I write this- The world DOES need a soul movement and Dr. Sha’s teachings are based on some basic truths and provide empowering tools that can provide benefit.

    But, I’m just not sure it needs the ultra-organized commercialized dogma of the Dr.Sha “Mission”:

    First of all, similar to his previous books, don’t be duped by the “best seller” status or 5 star ratings:

    1) members of the Mission contribute thousands of dollars in lieu of “blessings” from Master Sha as a part of a “book campaign.” These funds are used directly by Master Sha’s institute to internally buy books from retailers 2 or 3 at a time to falsely and unethically stage the book’s popularity (Google “Dr Sha book campaign” if you don’t believe me)
    2) members of the Mission are urged to write positive reviews about Master Sha’s books, and get discounts for it: thus all the prosaic 5 star reviews.

    It’s not really that they want to sell lots of books, they want to attract more members to the Mission- i.e. to join the Sunday Blessings and the Retreats, which is where the real money is made. It’s not that unlike this story: google “Did dirty tricks create a best-seller”

    Sure, the members deeply believe that they are promoting truth (indeed, other religions have done much worse in the name of God), but personally, I don’t find these methods to be all that “saintly” (it might even be karmic), if there are real truths in the book and the Mission it would sell itself on its own merit like most best sellers do.

    And what “services” does Master Sha offer at his blessings and retreats? Well, Master Sha believes that he is a “Channel” of the Divine, and he (and only he) has been given special powers. So he (and only he) can offer you- via the “Dr Sha dot com” channel (check it out for yourself):
    – Divine Protection against every imaginable hazard
    – clear your Karma for $2000. just like that, no followup or practice or nothing, even Dr, Sha calls it a “short cut”
    – Transplants for diseased organs
    – Body Soul Transplant for $5000 (not explicitly listed in the web site, but it is a prerequisite, among others, to be come a Master Teacher Healer)
    – Etc.
    (actually, you can usually get the blessings for less because there is always a last minute special to appeal to the “shoppers”)

    What is a Body Soul Transplant? You current soul leaves you and a new soul (a saint) chooses you. Its sad that some people are so down they feel they need a brand new soul, and I guess all the poor folks have little chance at becoming a saint-how exclusive.

    By the way, for the higher services, you aren’t told the cost of these until you apply first, in which Dr. Sha receives Divine guidance in whether he should accept you. Imagine trying to say no after the Divine supposedly accepted you (but of course, these are “priceless treasures”).

    But that’s just the tip of the iceberg-the later chapters of his books speak of the higher Soul Transformations etc. The “highest” downloads for the “chosen” ones are offered only at the “invitation only” retreats (i.e. for those who have “passed” the previous courses)…

    Dr Sha’s Sunday blessings are as follows:
    He offers a free blessing (download). Then his top assistants (the “professionals” on “dr sha dot com” who have gone through the full Soul transformation and have received all the highest downloads so that their souls reside in their highest chakra and they can see with their third eye- paid for either with $ or Universal Service- to the Mission) describe what they saw. Then all the people who have registered get their downloads. That’s it.

    Yes, the downloads might feel empowering, but inevitably you are left wanting more-if the top assistants can really see with their third eye, wouldn’t you want that too? Well you can get there by getting the downloads, becoming indoctrinated through the courses and practice practice practice (the practice e.g. chanting, empowering statements etc can make you feel good) – till you believe it (or some would say become deluded?)

    So inevitably, most are drawn to take the courses and to become a Universal Servant (requires you to volunteer time to the non-profit Institute that does all the “work” -whereas payments go to Dr Zhi Gang Sha LLC.). The courses all link together and coax you higher and higher, with the light at the end of the tunnel that eventually you might be able to charge for your services, like the “Professionals” on the web site – it’s the classic pyramid marketing scheme.

    But here is the hard part for me: people DO feel better, faith in the empowerments can help heal. But any one will feel better if they spend time getting out of their thinking brain and doing some chanting, setting good intentions, and having faith that they are empowered to make choices to make their lives better. And the collective energy at (any) group retreats is very powerful and healing. Why not rejoice in that – it might be the piece some people really need…

    But when that collective energy at the retreat is highest, and people are feeling their best, that is when Dr. Sha “suggests” that his downloads can make you even better, which is made so easily done by sticking your personal barcode on a form (& voila, your credit card is charged). It’s so effective that retreat registrants have to sign a legal disclaimer saying that all though the downloads are “priceless”, they must spend “within their means”. From my experience, few of the faithful do, unless you call credit card bills and liquidation of savings as “within your means”. (many retreat attendees spend 10’s of thousands)

    Seems like Dr. Sha is selling water to people standing in a river. It’s a shame that our consumerist society thinks we can “buy” everything. Its part of the reason we need a true soul movement.

    Members of the Mission have made a huge leap of faith to jump on these tracks. But the light at the end of the tunnel might just be an oncoming train. After investing so much, it might take an even bigger leap of faith to get off.

  3. another anonymous wrote on the Wired blog

    ” I am a former student of Master Sha’s. Master Sha threatened us by telling us that bad things would happen to us if we ever talked against him. I was at Stacy’s the day that Master Sha did a soul transplant on Kevin Iams. Kevin received additional higher level soul transplants from Master Sha after that , got his karma cleansed and he still died. I worked with Kevin’s mother until Kevin died, so I have personal knowledge about all of this.. Whenever a cure didn’t manifest, the retort was that the person didn’t chant enough, had more karma to clear, anything to take the onus off Master Sha.

    As for the double blind study, the article failed to mention that it was a “spiritual” heart study. The questions the participants were asked to answer did not ask about the physical heart, nor were any medical doctors involved with the study to review physical aspects of the heart. The study consisted of Master Sha downloading a soul transplants to a group of followers who did not know whether they were receiving the download in that session. The participants had to fork over a load of money to be able to participate in the study.

    There were two PhDs who designed the questionnaire for this study. Both have left the organization. One died of cancer after two years of purchasing various downloads, and the other because of conflicts with Master Sha. The PhD who died of cancer was told that she didn’t do enough for the organization and that’s why her cancer came back. These are the kinds of messages that come out of this organization. Buyer needs to be better than aware, buyer needs to stay away.

    What someone wrote about the frenzy of buying that occurred at retreats is absolutely accurate. The comment that someone made about losing their father to Master Sha is right on. Master Sha would tell us stories of how he sacrificed his family to do this divine work. He told us that we were chosen people who had the mission to heal the world. The only problem was that we never did that. We just attended classes in which we were given the same teachings over and over, and spent our life savings on purchasing downloads and/or soul transplants that didn’t heal us.

    During the time that I was part of the cult, I did not see any healing that could be documented and I did not heal from the aliments that I suffered from. Master Sha would tell us of his healings, some of his students would attest to the healings, but there was never any documented evidence. RG said he’d been healed of his cancer, but no one ever saw the diagnosis. SL said that she got pregnant because of Master Sha, but MS paid for a “special download” so she could get pregnant, and she never did. I attended a book lecture in the Marina in San Francisco during which a woman, who came in a wheel chair, got up and walked. When I tried to get her to share her healing with others, she was still in pain and not able to walk. Sadly, her healing was only temporary, and her failure to heal more was laid at her feet, not his.
    There were downloads given to us for going to the web site and writing our stories of healing; we were also given them for buying books from Amazon and Barnes and Noble and writing favorable reviews.. All those who have talked about the book campaigns and reviews are telling the truth. Master Sha is a best seller because he is the best at getting his followers to spend money they don’t have on books that no one wants, so he can have the stature of a best selling author. And this is all done in the name of the Divine.
    All of the downloads were very expensive, and after a while it was clear that what cost $1000 yesterday was now available for $100 today, because, after all, the Divine was now downloading a newer and higher version of it. There were a number of people I knew personally who hid from their spouses the thousands of dollars they spent on downloads.

    I travelled to China with Master Sha in 2005 for a “soul retreat” and spent time in Master Guo’s compound. Master Guo lives frugally and his services are available to all those who need them. One night I sprained my ankle fairly badly. Master Sha was there, but it was Master Guo’s doctor’s who attended to me and gave me ointments to heal my ankle. Not Master Sha. I have been unable to watch the DVD “Soul Masters”. Master Guo doesn’t speak English so he gets only what Master Sha gives him in Chinese. I don’t speak Chinses so I don’t know what Master Sha tells Master Guo.
    For a time I volunteered setting up people for healings on his remote healing and radio shows. During the time that I worked with him on that project, none of the people ,whom I followed up with, experienced any healing. What can I say about that time? That I did a lot of service to those who came to his “mission” to be healed, that I did a lot of service for Master Sha’s mission, that I spent a lot of time on the phone in “classes” where the same lectures were given over and over again, that I spent a lot of money on downloads for which I have no result.

    Before I met Master Sha, I would say that if there is a God, it is the God that I see in you. Since leaving Master Sha, I now say, if there is a God, it is the God I see in you.

    Master Sha says “You have the Power to Heal Yourself”. If that is true, then he misleads those who come to him, because he sells them “downloads” , then “soul transplants” telling them that this will heal them. “

  4. “Doctor” Sha is the most transparent and flagrant of charlatans, and he will eventually wind up either jailed, or doing his lying evil back in China.
