The book has been called “A delightful guide full of inspiration and information,” “ a magnificent book,” and a “must-read” by leaders in spirituality and science who have endorsed it, including don Miguel Ruiz, Dr. Christianne Northrup, Neale Donald Walsch, Dr. Emeran Mayer, Michael Bernard Beckwith, and more. It combines Lee’s extensive knowledge of the ancient Korean practice of Sundo with the latest longevity research to empower you to live a long life with purpose and passion.
Ilchi Lee’s main emphasis in the book is choice. Just as in his other works, he emphasizes the importance of connecting with your true self, choosing a life purpose that makes that self happy, and taking deliberate action toward that dream. When we have such a dream, Lee says, there’s no reason to stop at seventy, eighty, or ninety years old. In the same way we choose our life purpose, we can decide how long we want to live and orient our lives toward that goal in a way that serves our ultimate purpose. When we do that, the second half of our lives becomes full of vitality and meaning. Instead of going through a period of decline, we become enlightened elders that can uniquely contribute to society and the earth.
Ideas about “old age” are changing, and I’ve Decided to Live 120 Years presents a revolutionary way of looking at this time in our lives. It provides a uplifting answers to important questions we face as the number of people over sixty years grows. This book is a perfect prescription for our time.

Today, the House of Representatives of the State of New Mexico passed a House Memorial Bill to declare February 27, 2017 Brain Education Day in the House of Representatives. The memorial bill also requested that higher education and public education departments in the state consider implementing Brain Education into professional development for teachers and into student curriculum.

The memorial bill was introduced by Representative Linda Trujillo and passed unanimously by the legislators in attendance (70-0). New Mexico is the first state to declare a Brain Education Day, although New York City declared an IBREA Brain Education Day on January 8, 2009.

Ilchi Lee's Brain Education system of personal development has been applied to schools around the United States, especially New York City, as well as South Korea, El Salvador, and Liberia. In New Mexico, a three-month pilot project introduced Brain Education to seventy Zuni Pueblo middle school students, and more than 50 teachers in the Santa Fe public school system have been trained to implement Brain Education in their classrooms.
This memorial bill can open many new opportunities for Brain Education in New Mexico in the future.
The latest event of the Earth Citizen Movement that Ilchi Lee initiated took place last weekend in Kerikeri, New Zealand, where approximately 1000 people from 11 countries gathered to explore and celebrate Earth Citizen values and lifestyles.
The 1st Annual Earth Citizen Peace Festival spanned January 27th and 28th, 2017. The first day, called Kia Ora Night, opened the event with performances and food outside at the Kerikeri Domain.

At the end of the lineup of dancers, musical performances, and martial art demonstrations from around the world, the audience danced together to traditional Korean drumming. The theme of the night was Kia Ora, a New Zealand greeting in the Maori language that means "be well." From the messages of each group to the practicing of Ilchi Lee's Belly Button Healing method, all of the elements of the evening came together to share health and happiness for everyone in harmony with the earth.

The next morning was the main event, Earth Citizens Come Together, which started with cultural performances from a New Zealand native Maori group, b-boy dancers from South Korea, and traditional Korean drummers. Ilchi Lee was the keynote speaker, and he was preceded by a congratulatory address by the Deputy Mayor of the Far North District Council in that area, as well as congratulatory messages from politicians and VIPs from South Korea and the United States. The event ended with a recitation of the Earth Citizen Declaration by representatives from ten countries.

The festival concluded with a symposium on The Brain, Earth Citizenship, and Our Global Future, in which experts from the United States, South Korea, and New Zealand demonstrated how Ilchi Lee's Brain Education methods and other holistic modalities have helped youth become confident, discover their dreams, and begin to heal from intergenerational trauma. They also showed how human beings, other life forms, and the earth are interconnected at the microscopic level, and how important it is for everyone to work together for the health and happiness of all.

Many in attendance were overwhelmed by the amount of love that was poured into the event. One local New Zealander said the main thing he took away from it was, "Being more aware of yourself, being more positive, and spreading that positivity." A Body & Brain Yoga instructor from Miami, Florida, Franchesca Bisonó, said, "I feel a lot of motivation to keep contributing to make this movement happen."
The Earth Citizen Peace Festival was followed up on Sunday, January 29th by the groundbreaking ceremony of the Earth Village that Ilchi Lee is developing near Kerikeri. The Earth Village will become the main global training center for an Earth Citizen lifestyle and the hub of the Earth Citizen Movement.
Two non-profits involved in the Earth Citizen Movement hosted the festival, the Earth Citizens Organization (ECO) and the International Brain Education Organization (IBREA), along with Meditation Tours Ltd., which runs meditation tours in New Zealand based on the energy principles that Ilchi Lee teaches. They plan to make it an annual event that grows in size and scope.
