Mind Education: Principles and Case Studies

Mind Education is a robust curriculum of principles necessary for a healthy and fulfilling life, which institutions nationwide are embracing. What sets this curriculum apart is its holistic approach – it doesn't merely address emotions and feelings; instead, it empowers individuals to explore the depths of their hearts and identify the underlying influences that shape their thoughts. To draw a metaphor, although many other curricula focus on repairing thoughts and emotions, Mind Education focuses on reshaping the very blueprint of the heart. When structural changes in the heart occur, the result is a fundamental and long-lasting transformation in thoughts, emotions, and perspectives, a result of the inherent strength and efficacy of the curriculum.

Dr. Park is a recipient of multiple awards for his service including the 2017 Africa Excellence Leadership Award in Uganda and the certificate of appreciation from the Police Commission of Seoul in South Korea. He has had the privilege of serving as the religious and educational advisor to over 25 heads of states.

Dr. Park has authored over 50 sermon, counseling, and mindset-building books. He credits the invention of his mind education curriculum to the principles of the heart he studied in the Bible. Dr. Park lectured for the Communist Youth League of China in 2009 on the topic of mindset reform and character-building. The demand for a printed version of his talk spurred the publishing of his first book on mind education, Navigating the Heart, an international best-seller translated in more than 16 languages and has sparked the world’s interest on mind education.

Dr. Park has held annual ministers of youth forums, ministers of education forums, and university chancellor forums since 2011, hosting various governmental luminaries in a formal discussion about youth issues and development. He has been consulted by multiple university presidents and provosts to devise educational programs that effectively teach and coach healthy mindsets and the spirit of service. Through the first edition of Mind Education: Principles and Case Studies, Dr. Park wishes to provide a thorough and systematic study of the mind to the world.
