As in Dahn Yoga practice, where mindfulness prepares the body and mind to receive energy, mindfulness toward how food is eaten prepares the body and mind to receive the nutrition and goodness contained in the food.

Dahn Yoga & Health Centers, Inc., a national leader in health and wellness, now offers regular health tips in their monthly newsletter, Dahn Yoga Life. With Thanksgiving and the Holiday Season approaching, the November 2012 issue of the newsletter, Dahn Yoga Life offered ways to energetically connect with the life giving properties of your food, and that wisdom applies even after the holiday.
In what this month's feature refers to as "Life Particle Meals", practitioners are encouraged to honor the food they will consume through several actions that can increase the sustenance that the food may provide. It is explained that, as in Dahn Yoga practice, where mindfulness prepares the body and mind to receive energy, mindfulness toward how food is eaten prepares the body and mind to receive the nutrition and goodness contained in the food.
As recent medical research seems to be endorsing the possible benefits from ancient healing arts and meditation in creating a balanced body and good health, Dahn Yoga exercises and one-on-one training with an instructor may help by applying mindfulness to daily activities, as well as provide a greater understanding of Ki, or energy, and create better conditions for harnessing inner strength. It stands to reason that these same principles would apply to all aspects of living, including the process of eating.
With holiday meals everyone's minds, timely tips that include chewing more thoroughly and savoring the food are recommended along with the idea of sending LifeParticles into the food before you begin. While the LifeParticles meditation is briefly explained here, the new LifeParticle.com offers online videos of this meditation technique and much more. Another helpful tip of concentrating on the lower abdomen, the "dahnjon', is explained and its relationship to the basic Korean principle of "Water Up - Fire Down" is discussed.
Dahn Yoga is a mind-body practice that combines the ancient wisdom of Ki energy training with modern techniques to maximize the brain's functioning and the body’s energy. Dahn Yoga benefits are many and practitioners report that Dahn Yoga relieves stress, opens the heart, strengthens the will, and clears the mind.
