Why don’t you offer free trial meditation sessions?
The reason why we don’t provide free trials is that this meditation requires both time and dedication. To achieve result, it is necessary to practice the meditation over a longer period of time. If you are interested in a trial, we recommend that you sign up for one month, meditate regularly and after that evaluate how you feel.
How does a meditation session work?
The meditation method is guided and very simple. You sit comfortably on a cushion or in a chair and follow the meditation method with your mind as it is guided. In the beginning, the meditation is guided individually, but as soon as you feel comfortable with the method you can meditate together with others in our big room. The meditation is neither physically challenging, nor focused on any breathing techniques or mantras. The guides at the center will follow you through your meditation journey, and will do their best to make sure that you get a positive meditation experience.
Do you provide drop-in sessions?
As a member you can meditate whenever you want during our opening hours (9am-11pm every day). However, you book your session in advance by, for example, sending us a text message.
How often should I attend classes?
As much or as little as you wish. We encourage students to attend as much as possible to see results and reach completion. But our main goal is for you to be happy and this means you must choose the speed that brings balance and joy to your life.
Is prior experience with meditation required?
No. The method is designed to be accessible to all people, regardless of education, age, experience with meditation etc. Children as young as six years old have been known to meditate and they tend to grasp the concepts right away and love it.
What are the roots (or lineage) of this meditation?
Unlike other meditative practices, that come from specific, and often ancient, spiritual traditions, this meditation is somewhat new. This project started in 1996 after an ordinary man named Woo Myung reached full enlightenment. What first started as one meditation class consisting of ten students in Mungyeong, Korea in November of 1996, later developed into a complete program. Since that time Teacher Woo has worked for the past two decades developing different techniques (later established into the 7 levels) trying to perfect a method so others could reach a state of completion. As of 2019, there are about 5,000 people who have reached human completion and the number is growing every year!
While the founder provides a standard guide (i.e. manuals etc.) and guidance to the meditation centers when needed, the centers around the world run independently from him. Instead, this is emerging by hardworking people from all over the globe trying their best to share this message of hope with others as a result of their own positive and transformational experiences.
Why is our method so revolutionary?
The meditation was finalized as a complete program in 2012 and has grown into an international project spanning 41 countries. This method is special because what has been sought by all spiritual, mystical and philosophical traditions throughout the history of humankind: a return to the origin, the state of completion, or oneness is a reality. Now it is possible for everyone to recover their original nature.
The most revolutionary aspect of the meditation is that it has the possibility of leading to the achievement of world peace because a return to the origin, the state of completion or oneness is achievable. After one has achieved human completion one lives for others, only then is peaceful co-existence possible.
How many centers are available worldwide?
As of 2019, there are currently around 345 centers in 41 countries around the world.
How is the center operated?
The center is operated as a non-profit organization. On an international level, meditation conferences and retreats are organized on a regular basis. The largest center is in South Korea.
Is this meditation a religion?
No. This meditation transcends religion; those who engage in this study find within themselves that all religions are one. This meditation is not about believing in “Truth,” any doctrine or dogma. It is about, from within yourself, finding and becoming Truth itself.
