This book makes you realize that Enlightenment must become a Worldwide Pheonomenon. The collective consciousness has to be raised in order to heal our communities and ultimately ourselves. People must accept their responsibility and recover True Love within their hearts. It's not easy, but it's each individual's choice to heal themselves & the Earth (our home).Was this review helpful?

In his incredibly inspiring book, Healing Society, Seung Heun Lee manages to strike the perfect pitch and tone for his short, but powerful clarion call to the world for an 'Enlightenment Revolution,' a 'revolution of the human spirit.' The style of the work, almost a direct metaphor for its depiction of the enlightenment journey itself, is a beautiful weave of profound ancient wisdom, acute modern analysis and analogy, homey folk narrative, and direct personal experience, all bound together with alternating threads of urgent exhortation and playful humor. In this way, Master Lee speaks directly to all layers and levels of the global society he is desperate to reach. Master Lee's critical and urgent message of survival cuts through layers of doubt, skepticism, denial and cynicism. Its profound and disarming truth and simplicity effectively neutralize negative reflexive responses and rebuttals cloaked in empty rhetoric and sophisticated logic. He presents a unique and challenging description of personal and social enlightenment, and he provides an intriguing insight into his own fascinating journey and its relevance for the world. In a simple and direct manner, he convinces us that health and joy and fulfillment are accessible to us all, and that we can save the earth with a simple, but dedicated choice. Healing Society gives us a whole new point of view, new options for understanding who and what we really are and how we can be who we truly want to be as individuals and as a global society. It lays down a gauntlet for us to accept our responsibility for the salvation of our magnificent world. When we finish the book, we are left praying, along with Dr. Lee, for this critical new spiritual-cultural paradigm of love to replace the paradigm of competition and 'sweep across the face of the earth in a blaze of harmony and cooperation.' We remain searching our hearts for ways to light the fuse.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Short but deeply profound...
After reading this book, it is easy to understand why Dr. Lee has over 3 million people around the world practicing Dahnhak and Brain Respiration, his version of mind and body training. He puts the often esoteric concept of spiritual englithenment in very simple terms and makes it accessible to everyone. He lifts away the mysticism from spirituality. Even more, he proposes that the only lasting solution to today's intractable problems such as wars and environmental destruction lies in enlightenment of the humanity, not just one or two individuals. And he proposes that this is more than possible within 10 years! All in all, this is a book worth reading, especially from someone who is brave enough to proclaim himself enlightened. You will find yourself smiling and nodding in agreement and new insights.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
