The secret to longevity and healthy skin.
Skin has been largely overlooked in regard to its influence on overall health and aging. To many, the skin has been primarily related to aesthetics and beauty and has a weak connection to health and even weaker connection to longevity. But the skin is our largest organ, and the aging burden on the skin can have an impact on our overall health, contributing to the appearance of age-related chronic diseases. At OneSkin, we believe the purpose of skincare is not just to improve how we look, but to optimize our skin biology so that it is more resilient to the aging process. We create next level skin care.

Myung Sung Moving Meditation deeply affects all organs, joints, and muscles. When properly executed, the movements will greatly increase flexibility, speed, and coordination. Myung Sung directly affects qi - the vital energy of the body -where the proper flow of qi is known to be necessary to maintain health. During each movement, energy flows through the body through a network of 20 meridians that run throughout our body connecting to all of our organ systems. When our meridians are blocked, qi does not flow properly, and this is what directly leads to illness and discomfort. Myung Sung Moving Meditation + sound bath stimulates this flow of qi through the body and organs. Through movement, breathing, and sound it works to enhance and maintain flexibility and mobility of the spine. Utilizing the sound and vibrations of the gong to enhance the benefits of the movement and meditation practices, this hour-long practice rebalances our qi for an elevated mood, calmer mind, regulated digestion, and a boosted immune system.
Myung Sung Moving Meditation consists of simple and effective techniques rooted in QiGong that have been passed down for centuries to help:
Calm stress and anxiety
Clear and focus the mind
Improve circulation and oxygenation
These techniques can be done anywhere by anyone.
In Myung Sung, the freedom to move while you meditate is not just an accommodation for our busy lives, but a key element of the practice. This is a key part of Living Meditation. Movement strengthens our mind-body connection, increasing the flow of qi, and helping us learn to feel the natural energy that exists within and around us.
Dr. Jenelle Kim, Founder, JBK Wellness Labs
Dr. Jenelle Kim, founder of JBK Wellness Labs, and Author of Myung Sung: The Korean Art of Living Meditation will lead you on a guided journey of moving meditation and gong sound bath. These movements have been passed down in Dr. Kim's lineage combined with the healing powers of sound bath led by the sound sanctuary. You will feel a sense of a rebalanced mind, body, and soul. Movement and sound will allow you to immerse yourself in frequency and will create a meditative state emitting healing brainwaves and you will leave this event feeling rejuvenated, rebalanced, and energized!
