NEW YORK, Jan. 17, 2012 // PRNewswire // -- Stress has become endemic to the United States, especially for people living in and around New York City. This winter, the antidote is close at hand: you can de-stress and warm up from the inside with meditation. Meditation is a form of relief that requires no special equipment or previous ability. Now something as simple as meditation has been made even simpler by including movement. The unique Dahn Yoga meditation techniques, based on Korean Taoist tradition, can be experienced in New York City at its Power of Meditation event on January 22nd at the Skirball Center for the Performing Arts at Washington Square. Dahn Yoga founder, Ilchi Lee will be its keynote speaker.
Though the practice of yoga has become almost common place in the United States, Dahn Yoga offers a unique perspective, emphasizing an integration of meditation into all aspects of practice. Dahn Yoga practitioners learn that three lifestyle components are crucial for creating a better society: proper breathing, meditation, and compassionate actions. This is the type of message that can be found in The Call of Sedona: Journey of the Heart, the latest book by Dahn Yoga founder, Ilchi Lee. Lee has also authored more than 30 books on meditation, the brain and holistic living. At the Power of Meditation event, he will speak about these topics and offer direct demonstration and teaching of the powerful methods that form the basis of Dahn Yoga, Brain Education and several other mind-body practices. His presentation will show attendees how to directly apply ancient energy principles to their modern lives. These ancient principles have also informed the peace and holistic education work of IBREA, a UN accredited Non-Government Organization Lee founded in 2006.
Based on the Korean Sundo tradition, Dahn Yoga meditation focuses on movement, enabling practitioners to experience the benefits of meditation more quickly. The Power of Meditation will feature opportunities to learn and practice simple, powerful meditation techniques, live musical performance and a martial arts demonstration.
The Power of Meditation will be held at New York University's Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, 566 LaGuardia Place, New York, NY 10012, Sunday, January 22, 1:00-4:00 PM. All participants will receive a free two-week Dahn Yoga membership.
