Another video from Dahn about the CNN reports.
It's interesting to see a cult under pressure like this!

2:10 Their refutation of the claims that money from Dahn has been used by Lee to fund his extravagent lifestyle is very very weak. "It has been many years since Lee pass on ownership to his students." According to Dahn, Lee and his company doesn't own the house shown on CNN, but the company named as its owner, Tao Fellowship, looks like a Dahn front group. And rather than saying this is where he doesn't live, show us where he does live.CNN Got It Wrong About Dahn Yoga (Part 1)
Tao Fellowship site is under construction: http://www.taofellowship.org/
Every mention of it (bar one) on the first page of a Google search of "Tao Fellowship" is from a Dahn or Dahn related site.
The page that isn't from a Dahn site is a business listing
that says Tao Foundation also does business as "Sedona Mago Garden." http://www.sedonamagoretreat.org/
This blog entry about Sedona Mago Garden is by a Dahn member who doesn't make much effort to distinguish between Dahn and the Tao Foundation.http://www.byukwoon.com/
Dahn's Californian website offers this aboutTao Fellowship's garden.http://www.dahnyogaca.com/category/tao-fellowship/
Tao Fellowship’s Sedona Mago Garden – Eco-Harmony in Action
One of the hottest trends in the tourism field is the integration of hospitality with ecology and sustainability. A leader in this area is the Tao Fellowship, a nonprofit foundation with the mission “Love for the Earth and Love for Humanity.”
The best way to describe Tao Fellowship’s expression of its commitment to ecotourism and sustainability is the term eco-harmony. Humans are the children of the Earth and the Earth is our mother.
Tao Fellowship’s most complete example of its ecotourism commitment is the Sedona Mago Garden, which has accumulated many green credentials and it has plans for more. Mago means Mother Earth in several Asian cultures.
Partnering with the Institute of Ecotourism, Sedona, Tao Fellowship’s Mago Garden earned Five Leaves, the highest level possible on the Green Checklist, a system for evaluating eco-sensitive and sustainability performance. On a 100-point scale, an organization needs a score over 90 to get the Five Leaves designation. Very few businesses in the greater Sedona area come close to Tao Fellowship’s achievement of earning the highest category.
Tao Fellowship has used its goals and resources at Mago Garden for 10 years to create a paradise on Earth in Sedona. With its unique natural beauty and vortex-energy amid Coconino National Forest, the 160-acre Mago Garden has become an ideal environment for the renewal, training, and healing for guests from around the world. Tao Fellowship is not just talking the talk but instead genuinely walking the walk.
Because of Tao Fellowship’s development of Mago Garden, innovative holistic training programs aim to enhance health, happiness and peace, based on the Brain Education System Training (BEST) methods, developed by Ilchi Lee during the past 30 years, first in South Korea and lately in Sedona. The perfection of Nature at Mago Garden provides a prime force to help all guests and training participants learn, heal and grow.
The Tao Fellowship has pursued a strategy for Mago Gardeb that enhances its natural setting – with its mountains, hills, red rocks, gardens, a lake, ponds, and abundant greenery. Also regarding facilities at Mago Retreat, Tao Fellowship has created a genuine harmony with Nature based on green criteria – regarding its meeting rooms, guest rooms, meditation areas, pool-spa, horse stables, and a water management system.
And Dahn's Texas site offers this:
"Founded by Ilchi Lee in 1998, a world-renowned brain philosopher and educator and peace leader, Mago Garden is owned and operated by Tao Fellowship, a nonprofit organization committed to harmonizing humanity and the Earth."
Dahn's video mentions Tao Foundation as though it has no connection with Dahn or Lee.
And interesting that one of the "body guards" or perhaps just a guide is an Australian. I have been looking online for Dahn sites in Australia and haven't come across any yet.
4:45 Referring to CNN: "They didn't want to talk like civilized humans." lol!
Oh I so hope CNN stays on this!
