Starting in July 2002, more than 2,000 teachers have participated in the training course. Not only is the training course during the vacation, but the training course is offered during school semesters too; teachers participate in the course at the selected local centers after school.
Meditation teachers’ training course is a practical and persistent program which could be applied to the personality education at school site. It is a reputable systematic program. The Meditation Teachers’ Association is in charge of the training course for teachers, and they strongly believe that the happy minds of teachers and students are the foundation of personality education.
Teachers come to see all students as equally valuable and are able to lead a class more harmoniously and peacefully. Upon completion of the training course, teachers become happier, more open-minded, and more responsible individuals, which in turn positively affects the general class environment and learning in environment for students.
In addition, this meditation has been officially approved as the institution for teachers in-service training by the department of education in Daegu City. It has been also approved as the institute of Edu-Healing (healing through education).
As this meditation is a designated institution by the federal department of education, it is quite reputable with great public confidence. Accordingly, training credits are taken into account and training expenses are funded by the department of education (depending on the province, the percentage of funding varies: it is fully funded or up to 70%).
Not only do they become free of stress but they confirm their true self. Therefore, it helps them to set the proper direction for their life. Meditation university students’ camp guides them to lead a life full of wisdom and courage.
The students are especially cared for by experienced knowledgeable meditation instructors and open-mined volunteers who also attended the camp previously and completed the whole program. Even after completing the course in the camp, they continue their activities of subtracting the mind at this meditation club at their universities. Therefore, they receive ongoing guidance and support to become a healthy, righteous and successful member of society.
In addition, some universities, including Sungshin Women’s Univ, Gangwon National Univ, and Dongshin Univ, have adopted this meditation as a general education subject. It is a very popular subject showing students’ demand for emptying out their minds. When the subject is open for enrollment, it closes very quickly as the classes are filled to the maximum capacity. As students learn the method to become Truth and receive continuous guidance throughout the semester, they truly find the purpose of life and start to perceive their life to be meaningful. They would love to re-enroll in the subject in the following semester.
