Dietary Programs & Ancient Breathing / Energy Practices
As part of our spiritual path we include ancient traditional Korean and Taoist practices to restore and maintain a healthy body, as our body is the vehicle via which we practice to awaken. It is important to prepare the body by opening the energy meridians, and establishing internal balance -- physically, mentally and emotionally -- to create an open, healthy and stable foundation for a spiritual practice. The healthier you are on all levels, the deeper your practice experience can become.
