Maum meditation used new deceptive marketing tricks to get new members and money. In most cases, it pretends to be local meditation centers. They are very nice to newcomers, but they screamed and yelling to each other in upper higher levels. Many helpers become stressful and sick.

I medite at Maum and I've been doing for for 2 years. My mom also meditates and she is a different person.
I think a lot of the way the meditation is displayed does sound cult like, but honestly I think it has more to do with Korean culture than it being a cult!!! Most of the helpers don't speak English well so the way things are translated comes off wrong. I'm a New Yorker and a lot of the way they present themselves is weird, but I don't throw the baby out w the bath water! I know a lot about cults and this is not one!! All group mentality and group process has a cult like feeling. It's how groups and cultures function.
A cult is destructive and harmful. This far I have seen nothing that is harmful or destructive. Maum is a method of mediation that has helped me tremendously. I feel completely safe with people in the center. All of the helpers have been nothing but kind and have tried not to impose any of their ideas on me at all. They always say that Maum is just a method and you find out the answers yourself.
It's sad to see so many bad reviews because Maum is honestly a brilliant Method. If you have prior knowledge about spirituality then you will understand how uncredible it is....and if you don't want to do it that's your choice too! If it's not your path it's not your path! But don't do a disservice and trash something that may help other people!

Yes It does work, like other meditations works same way -it gives you this amazing feeling, thats hard to explain. But then at the some point somebody takes advantage of you. It depends how far did you get it ?

Give me a break You know nothing about maum meditation! I've been with maum meditation for over three years! It's been the best thing that has happy to me! The people I have met there have been kind beautiful people, they care about people, they give there lives up to help the human race!
If you look around this world is in big trouble! People hurt each other because they all have separate minds! Know one knows what the other is thinking! So they make up there own conclusion which create problems! Maum meditation is about changing the human mind to the infinite universe mine which is Gods mind! One mind!

You are talking bull....crap. believe me.
... I witnessed my wonderful loving partner of 13 years join this group. He couldn't stop going and resented anything I said about it if I questioned their ethics (we both attended Christian Church when he joined). Sadly I picked up one of their highly impressive booklets at a Health food store... they had 7 levels back then in 2010.. who knows how many they have now?!! He was curious so he joined..
That was the end of life as I'd known it with him. He became emotionally and mentally abusive and destroyed all that we have. I am sure 99% dragging up past memories and discarding them is very dangerous when you have very painful emotions you have repressed all your life... I paid for his repressed anger as he turned evil and nasty towards me..
At level 4 he became very irritable and bad tempered (he was NEVER like this).
When you have to get rid of memories as though they are just stored photographs taken by a camera, that is a BAD sign right there. When his came up he took out all this pain he had held inside him out on me... partly because I challenged him on what the heck he was doing going there in the first place 'cos I saw the "Cult" signs written all over these teachings...
Obviously I defended myself but by this time he was hooked, going there 4+ hours a day. I couldn't reach him anymore...
Ultimately 2 years after joining he walked out on me.. He just discarded me and my family - his in-laws he adored - it was like we never existed in the 15 years we were together..
I lost the man I loved more than life itself. I lost my home & the business I was fortunate to run from my home. My family was torn apart.. they lost the Son-in-Law they loved as he "discarded" them just like they meant nothing for 15 years.
Now they have lost me - their only Daughter - and the close relationship I had with them... because I now suffer daily from Complex PTSD. Sadly it's all due to the horror I lived through as I witnessed "Maum" slowly and insidiously destroy the man I loved for 15 years.
So I struggle everyday because I'm sooo traumatized. I've searched for years to get help, yet my medical insurance doesn't cover any Psychological Trauma Treatment I desperately need to get into a healing Residential Trauma Treatment Facility...and years of outpatient therapy have been useless.
I've had nightmares every day for 4 years..it's messed me up and shaken the very foundations of Truth & Goodness in this world I believed in.. and how the most intelligent people can be drawn in to the "lies and promises" of Maum and many other groups out there looking for a "fix" that can never be bought for money.
Nobody. .. and I mean NOBODY PAYS FOR SPIRITUAL ENLIGHTENMENT..it's a process each of us go through through life lessons .. we become humble, wise and have compassion and integrity..

I am a ex-member of Maum meditation and want to share some things with you!
How Maum mediation works :
If you spend an hour to an hour and a half a day in meditation, after a few weeks, there is a great probability that you will not return to full beta consciousness. You will remain in a fixed state of alpha for as long as you continue to meditate I'm not saying this is bad--if you do it yourself. It may be very beneficial. But it is a fact that you are causing your mind to go flat.
The more you meditate, the flatter your mind becomes and that’s were the danger comes when you allow someone else who you don’t fully know the motives of to take you through these steps and slowly alter deep beliefs about yourself and the world!
And if heaven on earth is non-thinking and non-involvement, I really question why we are here. A schedule is maintained that causes physical and mental fatigue (That’s why you need to came meditate every day for at least 2 hours).
The aim is to create a mechanism in flesh and blood with new beliefs and new thought processes. So you can be a drone and recruit more people who will bring more money to keep up wish lavish life style woo muyang lives! Heavy participation in meditation is a formula for psychological destruction.

It's not flat it's called peace! You can actually enjoy life without having all the the stuff in your head! Know negative stuff in your head because you throw it away! Why do you think people are so stressed out its because of your mind! Simple as that!

There is different brain wave states (alpha, beta, theta, delta) and all serves a different function,
1) Beta – The Waking Consciousness And Reasoning Wave
Beta brain waves are associated with normal waking consciousness and a heightened state of alertness, logic and critical reasoning.
2) Alpha – The Deep Relaxation Wave
Alpha brain waves are present in deep relaxation and usually when you’re slipping into a lovely daydream or during meditation. It is an optimal time to program the mind for success and it also heightens your imagination, visualization, memory, learning and concentration, and most important alpha state makes people especially susceptible and open to Conversion. Technically, what Maum helpers are doing is creating conditions that wipe the brain slate clean so that the mind accepts new input, in the form of suggestion.
The alpha brain-wave state induces the internal release of natural opiates and beta endorphins. Essentially, being in the alpha brain-wave state, feels good and can act like a drug!, That’s why you fell good!
This hype is temporary and goes away. So you assessed with completing another level and chasing the rush. The result is the reduction of thought and eventually, if used long enough, the cessation of all thoughts and withdrawal from everyone and everything except that which Maum group direct. The takeover is then complete.
If you spend an hour to an hour and a half a day in meditation, after a few weeks, there is a great probability that you will not return to full beta consciousness. You will remain in a fixed state of alpha for as long as you continue to meditate.

We are all conditioned that if someone gives us something, we have to give them something in return--in this case, it is your money!
The maum helpers not telling the truth until they get your mind controlled.
After level 4 it will ask for "Sky Funds" to allow your ancestors to go to heaven from purgatory, about 1K USD.
After level 7 is another level, or "culmination" process with the leader Woo Myung, they will ask you to pay large amount of money, around $6000, or more depends on your financial status.
NO ONE HAS EVER BEEN BRAINWASHED AND REALIZED, OR BELIEVED, THAT HE HAD BEEN BRAINWASHED
Educate your self!

The maum helpers have not told you this yet, they don't tell the truth until they get your mind controlled.
After level 7 is another level, or what they sometime call it "culmination" process with the leader Woo Myung, it last about three weeks or so, and its usually held somewhere in Argentina, Korea, or some another place, they will ask you to pay large amount of money, around $6000, or more depends on your financial status.
Without this culmination you wont be "complete". You already in level 5, in the past did they ask you to donate some money ? do search on google about maum meditation scam, here is some link to reddit forums [www.reddit.com

I think culmination is called Chamna education. I know after completing level 7 , we have to go to Chamna. They never told me how much it would cost. I know we have to stay some place 2-3 weeks and I am sure there is room and board plus travel expense. I will ask today and get back to you.

CULMINATION; Means, if you pass level 5 provably you will be there for ever.
