This course may be unavailable.


Have you ever seriously reflected on yourself? It is difficult to do because you spend your busy life every day with so much to do. Therefore, you are always looking forward, looking ahead. It is not easy to stop and take time to reflect on yourself. Research shows that if you reflect on yourself through meditation or writing a diary, you can work more efficiently and become a successful leader.

In this lecture, I will introduce a practical methodology of self-reflection meditation.  It is also a sustainable methodology you can practice in ordinary life. You will check your path in life, and you can understand yourself better in social relationships. You can concentrate on the purpose of your life through self-reflection. Examples from nature and air vehicles are also used as corollaries to demonstrate how to live a fulfilling life.

After reflecting on yourself according to this methodology, you will know clearly your character, your pattern of response, past trauma and your current problems.  If you eliminate the negative mind of the causes of the problem, your inner positive strength will be revealed. And more, you will also learn the methodology to live a free and complete life. It is highly recommended for students with engineering and science backgrounds to enroll in such a humanities course to achieve a balanced education and life.

Human completion is to exceed your boundaries and live with your neighbors in the world in happiness and harmony. This is a totally new methodology.

    I was suffering depression, anxiety and heart attack after taking this class. I found that the course is written by members of woo myung cult (maum meditation or subtraction meditation). This class is used to deceive students to follow his dangerous cult. Woo Myung lied and award himself with many bogus prizes because he lives in his false picture world. He has several cult locations and he has destroyed many families.

    This course is about Maum Meditation, which is a cult! It was founded by Woo Myung, who lies on his websites and brochures, and scams people! I was shocked to find out after I Googled the background of the course. For your safety and sanity, my advise is: Don't take this course!

    I came across with this workshop a few days ago. I am still processing the lessons I am getting from Mr. Lee but so far it had been fairly easy to comprehend the whole concept. Right now my situations in life does not allow to meditate as long as I want to, however I will keep listening and trying to integrate this particular meditation method.
  • Peter James
    I was very impressed by this lecture. This lecture talks about looking back myself and about human completion. And it was very reasonable and logically solved the problem. I am usually interested in meditation. If I can become human completion through meditation, I really have to work hard.
