June's Dahn Yoga Korean Culture Entry Explores Importance of the Mind

It is no exaggeration to say that health and disease and happiness and unhappiness are born within the balance or imbalance achieved by mind and body.

Dahn Yoga & Health Centers, Inc., a national leader in health and wellness, now features a special “Learn Korean” segment for practitioners in their newsletter, Dahn Yoga Life. Every monthly issue offers definitions of the meaning behind a Korean word or phrase and adds to understanding about the Korean culture. This month’s issue explains the meaning of the word, “Maum”.

In the June 2013 issue, the article explores "Maum" as a profound expression for the importance of the mind. The word can also be translated to mean a seed sprouting from its source, signifying that all develops from the mind. This “Learn Korean” segment provides easy understanding for a principle of energy, not only as it relates to Dahn Yoga, but to overall well-being. It states, “It is no exaggeration to say that health and disease and happiness and unhappiness are born within the balance or imbalance achieved by mind and body.”

It is this “mind and body” connection for which the article provides deeper meaning. Also mentioned is Dahn Yoga founder and meditation expert, Ilchi Lee’s newly released book, “LifeParticle Meditation” which offers an easily digested explanation of principles of energy and how positive and negative influences affect the energy of the body and the mind.

The Dahn Yoga practitioner’s understanding of the Korean culture and Dahn Yoga principles will grow with the simple definitions offered in the monthly “Learn Korean” segment. In addition to this month's issue, a treasure of previous articles is available online as well.
