Dahn Yoga's Monthly "Learn Korean" Cultural Segment

The harmony of caring for both self and others is said to be ‘jota’.

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 tips on the true meaning behind a word or phrase that adds to understanding about the Korean culture. This month’s issue explains the meaning of the word, “Jota”.

The article states, “The harmony of caring for both self and others is said to be ‘jota’”. However, as the article illustrates, the true meaning is much more intricate. With a broader focus, the feature article invites readers to learn the deep meaning contained within the Korean words for “good” and “bad” and the philosophy behind the concept for each.

Harmony is the key here and the feature goes into greater detail regarding the interconnectedness of not only the words, but the underlying concept of harmony that supports the many variations of terms that apply. With some discussion of present day society, the word’s meaning becomes clearer, as does the concept of the Hongik Philosophy of Dahn Yoga, which seeks to work for the good of all.

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