After finding a cure for a terminal, genetic illness in 2002 in the healing forms of the rainforest, Roman Hanis spent the next ten years working with indigenous Peruvian cultures in the Amazonian rainforest, learning the ancient healing ways while seeking possibilities for creating ecological sources of sustenance for local populations and working to preserve the rainforest and its spiritual heritage of sacred medicinal plants. Roman looks forward to eradicating suffering in the world and its cause — ignorance — by promoting education on the possibilities of more sustainable, harmonious relationships with nature, and to simultaneously create supportive, self-sustaining and nurturing communities.
Roman is a certified Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioner in Peru. He is also a practitioner of the Eastern spiritual disciplines of Tibetan breathwork and meditation, QiGong, Yoga, Shaolin physical therapy and Toltec practices as well as the perspective of these disciplines from Jungian psychology.

He has also practiced physical trauma rehabilitation, medical massage therapy and Eastern bodywork. With these tools and concentrated efforts, he has been able to help numerous individuals overcome many health issues and pathologies on physical, mental and spiritual levels.
