    Hagajae's Tea Meditation Class 


    This 90-minute class will give you a chance to see a traditional Korean tea ceremony and learn about the tea ceremony. 

    We will then guide you as you perform the ceremony yourself.

    We will also talk about some basic meditation concepts and how you can benefit from making tea ceremony meditation a part of your life. 

    Those who are interested will have a chance to learn about additional tea courses offered at Hagajae. 


    Hagajae Museum is not religiously affiliated, and our approach is based on medical meditation. 

    Medical meditation is simply practice maintaining mental sensitivity and responsiveness at the highest possible level.

    Regular meditation practice has been proven to strengthen your immune system, 

    improve your general physical and emotional health and improve your sense of well-being. 

    Tea ceremony meditation is easily available to anyone who is interested,

    and seeing the effects of the meditation doesn't take a long time. 

    Unlike religiously-based meditation techniques which require long periods of rigorous training, 

    Hagajae's Tea Meditation is available to anyone regardless of faith, religious, health, or cultural background.


    About the Instructor 


    The class will be led by the director of Hagajae Institute, Dr. Roy Ghym. 

    Dr. Roy Ghym studied Western medicine at Seoul National University Medical School, 

    as well as Traditional Korean Medicine at Gyung Hee University.

    While operated an anti-aging clinic in the fashionable Cheongdam-dong area of Gangnam in Seoul, 

    Dr. Ghym became convinced that stress was the primary cause of aging and ill health.

    He opened the Hagajae Institute to support people in creating healthy and fulfilling lifestyles for themselves. 

    Hagajae's Tea Meditation Program is a primary focus of the Institute.
