Overall Program

Meditation Program

There are 7 levels of this meditation. As you advance to the upper levels through each level's systematic, scientific method, you will be able to reflect on yourself more deeply. And as much as you subtract the mind, you attain a bigger consciousness and your life transforms.

Action Meditation (Young-Nong) Program

You can participate in action meditation starting from Level 4. Through action meditation in nature and taking action for others, all the habits that are rooted in your body and the minds that were accumulated self-centeredly are subtracted. This helps you to continue meditating in your daily life.
