SunDology Graduate Studies programs enable students to earn a Master's degree and complete research in the philosophy, history and health practices of SunDo and Taoism. Focusing on creating educators who have a strong sense of self-realization and wholeness, we aim to provide students with an understanding of the dynamics among people, society and nature in order to promote a sense of peace, goodwill and natural interconnectedness.
Introduction to SunDology
One goal of the SunDology Program is to improve students' physical and mental health. In addition to academics, students actually practice SunDo and other holistic health-related modalities.
A second goal is to ultimately enhance the relationships of human beings within society and their connection to the natural environment and the universe. These relationships are improved through study of the developmental, comparative and historical backgrounds of various disciplines related to SunDo and also through the practice of SunDo meditation, breathing and qi exercises.
A third goal is to examine a part of SunDo culture arising from Shinseon thought and customs. In ancient times, the Shinseon were thought of as superhuman beings who had attained perfect health and longevity through practices that cultivate the body and mind. These practices were similar to the cultivation methods of SunDo, and were also represented symbolically during folk festivals and rituals to promote harmony and balance in the world. Sundology studies Shinseon thought and customs to better understand how humans attempt to gain health and longevity by focusing on human worldviews, belief systems and transformations of consciousness. At the same time, Sundology also seeks to understand the human quest for health and longevity through an examination of how the hidden drives of the subconscious mind and collective unconscious influence the conscious human's longing for "immortality."
