Make sure to do a temple stay if you go to Korea. I spent a weekend at a temple with some friends. We were given nice meals, had tea with the monks, and learned about Buddhist culture. It was a very relaxing and zen weekend away from our crazy and busy lives. That night we went to bed early and slept on mats in a small room just across from the temple. We woke up at 4 AM to meditate and did that throughout the morning. As the day went on we would try to meditate for longer periods of time. I would like to pat myself on the back because I lasted a whole 45 minutes without looking at my watch. We also practiced Tai Chi, went on a meditation walk, and learned a bit about the history ofBuddhism.
