Institute Director & Founder

Manohar Croke, MA, CCP,
Diplomate Esogetic Wholistic Medicine


Manohar Croke is the Director of the U.S. Esogetic Colorpuncture Institute and was formerly co-founder and co-director of the Institute for Esogetic Colorpuncture, USA (started in 1992). Ms. Croke has a Diploma in Esogetic Holistic Medicine and trained with Esogetic Colorpuncture originator, Peter Mandel, starting in 1988. She continues to update her skills with the International Mandel Institute. She is authorized by the International Mandel Institute to teach all levels of training in Esogetic Colorpuncture and Kirlian Energy Emission Analysis throughout the United States and she has done so since 1992. She has also authored and published numerous articles on both Esogetic Colorpuncture and Kirlian Energy Emission Analysis.  And she recently published her book entitled: Energy Psychology Using Light and Color: Opening bodymind pathways to relieve traumatic stress and enhance psychological well-being with Esogetic Colorpuncture.

Ms. Croke has maintained her own private practice in Esogetic Colorpuncture and Kirlian Energy Emission Analysis for 23 years (see “private practice” for further information) She has a Masters degree in Transpersonal Psychology and is trained in somatic methods of trauma resolution therapy, meditation and mindfulness. She is also a Teacher-in-Training in the Diamondlogos system of spiritual therapy, with 20 years in-depth study of these teachings. She blends all these skills and knowledge in her healing work with private clients, as well as her students. Here is what students have to say about her teaching work:

Manohar’s teaching is organized and full of pertinent information, and she presents the material in a clear way, making sure that every person understands the concept/treatment.  She has seemingly infinite patience and compassion, and she allows plenty of time for students to try out the treatments on each other.  The last class I had from her was the best colorpuncture class ever!” – Peggy Bull, M.A., CCP

“As a teacher, Manohar is thorough, caring, and able to relate information in a way that is easily understood. She has both a breath and depth  of knowledge that she draws upon in her teaching with each individual. I have come to value her wisdom and gentleness of spirit and share her enthusiasm for both teaching and learning of Esogetic Colorpuncture. Her passion is inspiring, and I would recommend anyone looking to gain knowledge in the field of colorpuncture to embrace her as their teacher.” – Robert M. Greczanick, EAMP, CCP
