The Tao te Ching abounds with observations about the nature of reality which defy logic, and yet, somehow they resonate with us at a deeper level. The wisdom contained within verses of the Tao te Ching is hard to fathom, but upon contemplation, the subtle and dualistic nature of the human mind is revealed, often leading us to a more profound insight.

Science of Meditation
Through understanding of brainwave research, we can harness the powers of the conscious and unconscious mind through meditation. All aspects of life including health, creativity, and interpersonal skills are improved by maintaining stillness and experiencing a deeper way of being.

Stress & the Body-Mind
According to Eastern perspectives, the body and mind are integrated parts of the whole human being, and are not two separate entities. The study of the human stress response from a physical and psychological standpoint leads to better stress management and integration of meditation into our daily life.

Breath as a Life Force
In many spiritual traditions the same word is used for both breath and spirit, underscoring the esoteric principle that in essence they are the same. The process of refining breath into energy and then into pure spirit is the essence of SunDo practice. Discussion also centers around limitations we face and the experience of oneness.

About the Teacher
Master Hyunmoon Kim holds a PhD in the Philosophy of the Human Sciences and oversees a graduate studies program called Sundology at Hanseo University in South Korea. Master Kim integrates contemporary knowledge of western psychology with his traditional eastern training in SunDo Taoist Yoga & Meditation practice.
SunDo is a type of yoga & mediation that does not require another person to act as an intermediary to self-realization. It is a self-cultivating practice that depends upon an individual's ability to sustain his or her own inner process of development. Through yoga-like postures, breathwork, meditation, visualization and energy healing techniques, SunDo integrates many modalities into one complete holistic practice.
