Life & Mission

His Story

Master Oh was born in South Korea and from an early age experienced chronic health problems, with much of his childhood being spent in and out of hospitals. This experience shaped his views on life and how to live free from pain and anxiety.

Growing up on a farm and being the eldest son meant he had to work hard to support the family. There was no time to dwell on his physical weaknesses and any spare time was dedicated to study.

As a university student he experimented with many spiritual practices and meditated for long periods of time, until he encountered a unique  healing method that changed his life. By learning how to harness the the power of ‘human energy’ - Qi,  he began to feel a deep sense of peace enabling his body to heal.

The practice he encountered was called Jung Shim, which translates from Korean as ‘Beautiful Mind’. Based on ancient Taoist principles the practice teaches the art of harnessing ’human energy’ to recharge and regain a good-hearted, generous and compassionate state of being. Profound experiences led him to devote the rest of his life to sharing the Jung Shim healing method with people. With little money and practically no English, he left his home country to introduce Qi to the Western world, opening the first Jung Shim Centre in Sydney in 1994. Subsequently, he opened centres in America, Canada and finally in the year 2000, the UK. He has travelled the world healing thousands of people by teaching them how to harness the power of their own ‘human energy’.

Over 30 years of intensive spiritual training, comprised of chanting, energy training, meditation and giving treatments, Master Oh has developed a wisdom and healing ability that stem from a profound connection to the source. In particular he enjoys giving hope to those with chronic conditions, which no other form of treatment has been able to address. He has run numerous charity projects to help those in need. He also understands that although some people may seem outwardly successful, they are in fact feeling lost and disconnected. Being able to guide these people is also an integral part of his work.

Master Oh can be found at the the London Jung Shim Centre. He also travels to other countries to support Jung Shim centres worldwide, as well as pioneering the Jung Shim method at events around the globe.


‘Jung Shim’ is the original state of the Universe and our original self. It is the point and the place where life is created and to which all life returns. Jung Shim exists as original mind, which is made of the brightest light, purest love and clearest energy - Qi. This light exists within all of us and is our original nature. However today we are affected by so much suffering and pain because we are disconnected from our original nature. This disconnection is experienced by individuals, families and society and creates negative energy within ourselves, our physical environment and the world.

Energy never dies, never disappears. Even though people pass away, they keep the same energy character and this vibration continues to affect the living. Because of this, people have suffered for so long without fully understanding why. By learning to harness the power of our own ‘human energy’ we can return to our original mind and restore our original nature as well as brighten the energy of those who have passed away. Even a physical environment can be transformed with Qi and become full of light and love to supports our happiness and health.

When we learn to harness the power of Qi, our mind becomes clear, bright and beautiful. We have more compassion, devotion, and can sacrifice more for others. Our mind starts to become more selflessly giving, like a parent’s mind, which is the mind of the Universe. With this generous beautiful mind, we can tune to the law of the universe and understand the true purpose of our life, who we are and how we should live. We can regain our health and learn how to live together in harmony again.

Now is the time to go beyond religion, philosophy, race or conditioning. In order for us to survive as a species, we need to remove all the negativity which is creating separation and recreate harmony. With this intention, I want to introduce the Jung Shim method to as many people as possible, and I am ready to go to any lengths in order to help people change their lives.’
