Meditation in a Buddhism Temple
Apr 2019 • Friends
What a day! I had an amazing opportunity to meet a monk. We went in a Temple and he tought us a lot about the Buddhism religion.
Don't worry if you do not understand Japanese, this event comes with a excellent tour guide for English translation.
At the end we all meditated together for one hour. The surrounding energy was unbelievable and we all had a strong connection.
I highly recommend this activity and the guesthouse Bakke. I had a great time staying at the Japanese countryside.
