“Just calm down and take a deep breath.” If you are upset or stressed out about anything, this simple advice is probably the best you’ll ever get. Breathing is a very valuable key to stress relief—and to emotional and physical health, too. Vitamin O The oxygen that we take in through the air that we breathe is absolutely essential to health, so it is sometimes called “Vitamin O” by nutritionists. But, actually, it is even more important than the other… Read more

  When you think of your brain, what skills would you most like to gain to become smarter than you are today? A lot of people might wish for a photographic memory or the ability to calculate long lists of numbers in their head. These types of cognitive skills, the kind that win us awards in school and impress our friends, may not be the most important, however. In 1995, author Daniel Goldman wrote a book called Emotional Intelligence in… Read more

You have probably heard the spiritual parable of the two builders—one builds his house upon the rock and the other builds his house upon the sand. The house on the rock withstands the storm that passes through the land, while the house on the sand collapses and washes away. Of course, this story is referring to the need to base your life on truthful spiritual principles, but did you know the same is true for your body? Yes, like a… Read more

Many spiritual seekers today are looking to put the “law of attraction” into effect in their lives – to improve their finances, to attract romantic partners, or to create a more abundant and satisfying life in general. According to this principle, “like attracts like,” so one must cultivate a positive mind in order to manifest a positive life. Korean Sundo practice contains a similar concept, but it’s a little more focused on how energy works. In English, it could be… Read more

Holistic is a popular fitness buzzword these days. It represents a positive trend that considers the health of the whole person, not just physical health. Since every part of the person influences all other aspects of health, this is a wise consideration. An important element, however, is often left out of the discussion of holistic health – energy. This is unfortunate since ultimately we are energetic beings; Asian systems of health and healing rely on that notion, and science has confirmed… Read more

  In the past few years, much has been made of the importance of nature for our mental and physical health. People who spend time in nature on a regular basis have lower stress levels, are generally more fit, and report lower levels of anxiety and depression. It’s so important that some are now calling nature “vitamin N.” If you view our lives energetically, as I do, this should be no surprise. We are part of the energetic systems of… Read more

  As a spiritual teacher, I talk about the brain in most of my lectures, and it is the central focus of my Brain Education program. For some people, this may seem odd since spirituality usually focuses on the unseen world, not on physical organs like the brain. Usually, the worlds of spirituality and science are kept separate – one relying strictly on logic and the other more on intuition – but I see them all as part of the… Read more

Spring is a wonderful time of year. It is a time when the whole earth is renewing herself. New leaves and blossoms appear on the branches of trees, birds and butterflies chase each other in the sky, and the crisp air of spring carries the hopeful hint of summer’s warmth. It’s also the traditional time of year for spring cleaning, a chance to brighten and freshen our living spaces so that we, too, can feel renewed and refreshed. This year… Read more

  Every human being is a creative genius. Most people may doubt that statement, but I truly believe it. I believe it because of one special attribute of the human being – the human brain. The human brain is a creation machine, constantly producing thoughts, ideas, perceptions, solutions, and beliefs. If you look around you, you will see the product of this amazing organ: roads, buildings, vehicles, clothing, paintings, sculptures, factories, schools . . . the list could go on… Read more

In spiritual circles these days, there is a lot of talk about abundance. Of course, there are a lot of ways the word abundance could be defined, but most often people are seeking financial abundance – a steady stream of income and enough in the bank to feel secure. Money offers us the freedom to do certain things we want to do in the world, and with it we are freed from some of the more mundane worries of day-to-day… Read more
