lifetime member of the Theosophical
Society. He was born in Indonesia in
1905 of Dutch parents, and went to
Australia as a young man where he
studied science and engineering at the

he and his sister, Dora Van Gelder

homeopathy and began practicing
during the 1930s. Harry received
degrees in England in Osteopathy,
Physiotherapy, and Naturopathy. He

the healing arts span more than 50
years until his death in 1995. in 1985
he founded the Temple of Noetic
Science in Portland, Oregon.

He came into my life (Eliza) in 1990 at
just the right time to help me out of a
period of great personal distress and
struggle.  I consider him my most
important spiritual mentor who helped
me heal what ailed me at that time, and
gave me and countless others
worldwide, the tools to seek and attain
Unity, Beauty, and Peace. His influence
on my life was and is so profound that I
feel I could never adequately thank him
for sharing his knowledge, healing, and

He is the author of two books:
Inner Peace Through The Process of
Knowing: Essays in Metapsychology,
, and The Process of Healing,
