I enjoyed the TempleStay. Parts of the pushed me out of comfort zone and gave me the opportunity to assess my inner well-being. I enjoyed listening to Sunim's explanations on meditation and happiness. Thank you to everyone that worked hard to make our experience good and help us grow personally.

I feel very lucky to have come in the winter when there are not many people, but enough people to make good friends, but also to feel and see the Crisp Winter landscape. The whole experience was an emotional roller coaster for me with ups & downs and many lessons learned. I would definitely recommend the Temple Stay program to others because its a great way to learn about and experience Korean Buddhist culture, as well as a great way to learn about oneself. The whole place was also quite beautiful.

Anna, 30, Female, U.S.A
One of the best experiences I have had in South Korea. The YongJooSa TempleStay was an excellent introduction to some of the practices and fundamental tenets of Buddhism. The experience engaged all of the 5senses - listening to the sound of the morning bell, smelling the incense, seeing the group members rise and full in unison to bow, testing each bite of food at the meal in silence and feeling the smooth texture of the wooden beads as we made the rosary. The exercises and activities create heightened sense of self-awareness and build the ability to tours on the present. A great learning and spiritual experience.
Kira, 26, Female, Germany
I really enjoyed the program. I am Thankful for the wonderful impression you gave me for Buddhism and I hope that you will keep touching people's hearts.
Ilse, 22, Female, Netherland
It was a really great program. I've learn so much more about Buddhism. The morning activity(morning chanting ceremony) was for me the most impressive. It really was hard, but so different then I even did before. Especially meditation and conversation with sunim.
Judith, 21, Female, Netherland
Great respect for the things the nuns shared with us. It made me feel very welcome in my first encounter with Buddhist culture. I think Buddhism is a good foundation for living a happy and thankful life. Thank you for taking me out of the daily hectic life and letting me enjoy the silence.
Tania, 22, Female, Mexican
