However, there is nothing spiritual about our home study course. It is solely about getting the fastest wellness results possible, and the information in the Symptoms Handbook is organized around a Rapid Access to Knowledge Design created by courseware developer Marshall Masters.

Marshall evolved and perfected this knowledge access design during his years as an information systems analyst. His Silicon Valley consulting clients included AT&T, HP, Lockheed Martin, Oracle and Sun Microsystems, and he used this method to explain large, complex systems in a problem-solving way to the users of these systems.

Marshall applied the very same knowledge access techniques to the topic of Danjeon Breathing, based upon a core curriculum of 57 Danjeon Breathing poses for clarity, health and stamina. Where you, the user will find the power of this system is in the front of the book, with the table of contents and indices.

Content Organization

The first thing you will notice when using the table of contents and indices at the front of the book, is that the entries are color-coded. This is because all of the 57 poses in this system are organized into three main color-coded categories: low-impact (blue), universal (green) and high-impact (red.)

After the Table of Contents, comes the Symptoms Index. This alphabetical index presents the 57 poses in this system as they apply to a range of common physical and psychological issues and concerns. If you know what hurts, use this to find what works.

The Elements Index will enable you to fine-tune your exercise plan in a very personal way, by knowing which rules the way the your body responds to the environment. In the first section of the book, you’ll learn how to identify your predominate ruling element.

And lastly is the Exercise Stages Index. It presents the 57 poses in this system as they are used during the four stages of every exercise program: release, immersion, breathing and return. Say, for example, you want to customize your exercise plan so that you can optimize your retention of life force energy.
