FAQ

What does "Hyo Jeong Cheonwon" mean?

The Hyo Jeong Cheonwon, or HJ天苑, combines the acronym HJ for hyojeong (孝情), meaning “heart of filial piety,” and cheonwon (天苑), meaning “heavenly garden,” and refers to the greater Cheongpyeong campus.

What should I bring?

Divine Principle (3-color version), FM radio, slippers for indoor use, sports shoes, dress clothes, stationery, prescriptions, personal hygiene and grooming products, pocket money, white t-shirts.

Will this workshop be held again next year?

Yes, True Mother said that this workshop is to be held every year.

What is the difference between Global Top Gun and this workshop?

The standard for Top Gun is at least 3 years of experience as a public figure in the church or church-related work. This workshop is not for current public figures but rather for those who are aspiring to become public figures. It is a workshop for those who have the mindset and heart to become core members of Family Federation.

How do I get to the Cheongpyeong Heaven and Earth Training Center?

 Buses will be available to pick you up from the Incheon airport from July 30. We will meet at gate 14 in Terminal 2F (see below). If you are arriving before or after these dates, you will have to use public transportation.
