Dahn Yoga & Health Centers, Inc., a national leader in health and wellness, offers a new series on Korean culture, in the Dahn Yoga monthly newsletter Dahn Yoga Life. This month's segment, "Learn Korean" features the word "eol."
The March 2013 issue of Dahn Yoga Life defines the Korean word, "eol" as "spirit" and explains that in Korean culture this spirit is "a spirit that pursues happiness for all, not just what is good for one’s selfish interests." The character "eol" is found in many Korean words and the varied uses of the word are shared.
Also mentioned is Dahn Yoga founder, Ilchi Lee's “Eol Discovery Campaign,” as well as his nationwide lecture tour in Korea where he spoke on mental health. “Mental health is about recovering our lost spirit, our eol,” he said. The word, "eol" has deep meaning in the culture, and the feature article reveals interesting and admirable traits of compassion and global community aspired to by the Korean's as a whole.
In a reference to Dahn Yoga energy training, a brief description is given on the philosophy behind the practice and a sense of how one who has lost this spirit, or "eol" can recover it through practice. Additional insight is available the monthly newsletter Dahn Yoga Life, which gives the reader a well-balanced sense of Dahn Yoga principles and the holistic approach for fitness, well-being and community spirit. In addition to this month's edition, back issues are available online as well.
