Program for Educators
The Ma-Eum Su-Ryun
Professional Development Program for Educators
The Ma-Eum Su-Ryun Professional Development Program for Educators is a meditation program supported by the South Korean Ministry of Education, Science, and Technology. Upon completion of the program, educators receive credits recognized by the South Korean government.
It is a one week program that takes place during the school breaks, through which primary, secondary, tertiary, and university level educators can find their true self, and apply what they have learned in their professional and personal lives. Woo Myung, the founder of Subtraction Meditation, has always emphasized that educators must expand their consciousness in order for the young people of this world to grow spiritually and realize their true self. Many educators have taken part in this program, and they are currently implementing what they have learned toward the true education in their classrooms.
