Board Members


Hossca Harrison-Founder

For the past 37 years Hossca has had the privilege of working with many troubled teens from every walk of life. One thing these teens all have in common is forgetting to love themselves. Many have developed low self-esteem that often leads to self-abuse.


Hossca works with each teen individually assisting them to understand the cause of their patterns of self-abuse, and assisting them to remove blocks from their mind, body and spirit. His reward is seeing the teens he has worked with over the years--many now in their twenties and thirties return to share with Hossca their gratitude for the assistance he gave them.

Hossca is also the Founder of Life Energy Flow Tai Yi School of Healing. Hossca has been taught in excess of 4,000 exercises by a Chinese Tai Yi Master This teaching has taught him to see through blocks and veils that people put up to hide their pain and suffering. Hossca brings a unique and dynamic healing experience to his students. Life Energy Flow Tai Yi School of Healing is the only school on earth teaching and certifying Tai Yi Practitioners.


Hossca has been married for 43 years, has two children, five grandchildren, and one great grandson.
