Demko, a former student of Robert Wise and Ron Howard at the American Film Institute, is the Founder and Director of The Center for Healing Arts. In 2005, he was working on a film about Swami Sundaranand, a Himalayan yogi, ascetic and naturalist when he began to think seriously about the need to help others experience the wisdom of the great living teachers and healers.

Center members will have an opportunity to share their thoughts on holistic health topics with one another through community discussions and explorations. They will also receive special training via DVDs from a wide range of healers in many disciplines they would not have a chance to see otherwise.

Members will receive six DVDs a year, each of which will feature a personalized, in-depth encounter with different practitioners. The DVDs allow members to explore the many types of alternative medicine ( used worldwide. Over time, the DVDs will provide a well rounded view of these diverse health techniques. Practitioners representing such traditions as reiki, meditation, qigong, shamanic healing, ayurvedic medicine and other historically rooted wellness pathways will be explored.

"The Center is for anyone involved in the healing process," Demko said. "It''s for practitioners (, students, caregivers, and those who have an interest in personal wellness ( The Center is really a place where people can come together in the comfort of their own homes with family and friends to experience different forms of the healing arts." Demko added that the Center allows people to gather on the Internet in a community forum ( to share their thoughts and ideas.
