Maum meditation is a type of meditation that purports to cleanse a person's mind by discarding the slices of memory that constitute the false mind. It seeks to cleanse a person's conceptions, thoughts and emotions to allow room for the development of a universal mind.
The false mind contains pictures of a person's past experiences and traumas that shape his way of thinking. Through Maum meditation, a person strives to relieve himself of the burden caused by the false mind and experience freedom. The concept of Maum meditation was created in 1996 by Woo Myung. As of 2014, there are over 340 meditation centers across the world, and over 300,000 people have practiced the Maum method.
