When I first started teaching, I gathered with my students in a small park in South Korea. Today, my students have much nicer facilities, practicing the exercises and principles I teach in centers around the world, now known in English-speaking countries as Body & Brain Yoga centers. I have struggled sometimes to know what to call the practice, however, because it is both old and new, in many ways like yoga and tai chi, yet in some ways different. It… Read more

You may think of the spiritual world as being completely beyond and outside of the body, but in fact spirituality is a built-in feature of the human brain. Just as we have ears to help us hear sound waves and eyes to help us see shapes and colors, we have a bodily organ to help us attune to the spiritual world. It is called the pineal gland. The pineal gland is a tiny organ, about the size of a grain… Read more

As miraculous as the human brain is, it would be worthless without the senses that connect us to the outside word. Any time you use one of the five senses—touch, sight, hearing, smell, or taste—you are receiving messages directly from the world around you. Together, they give us our perception of the world and our personal conception of reality. The sum of the messages we receive through the senses and process through the brain are all we have to make… Read more

Everyone already knows that exercise is important for your body’s fitness. But did you know that it’s critical for your mental and spiritual health as well? One might even say that it is the foundation of wellness for the entire being—body, mind, and spirit.

In my list of the seven most powerful tools for developing a Power Brain, energy is number three on the list. Because it is an unfamiliar concept to some in the Western world, it might at first seem esoteric or fanciful, but in fact it is a common sense part of everyday life. Most people just fail to realize how much power they have and how easy it is to sense and direct energy. Everything Is Energy First, it is… Read more

In my list of seven most useful Power Brain techniques, meditation is second on the list. It is the key to truly changing your brain, which, in turn, is the key to changing your life.

For that reason, more and more people are wisely integrating… Read more

Over the course of the next few months in my Patheos blog posts, I will write about each one of them and will introduce some practical tips for using them.

You are an artist. Every human is an artist because, unlike other animals, our fate is not just determined by instinct or environmental conditions. We have a unique ability to shape the content and direction of our lives. Every choice you make is like a brush stroke on the canvas of your life. So, what do you want your life to look like? When you stand back and look at the whole composition at the end of your life, what… Read more

Spirituality could be defined as the practice of bringing one’s ego under control. Many paths instruct adherents to become egoless and to cultivate an attitude of selflessness. “Enlightened” individuals are beings who have transcended the ego and are living in a state of expansive love for all beings. As people progress along the path of spiritual development, they drop their focus on the labels and identities of the world, such as their worldly reputation and financial status, and identify instead… Read more
