Now Exactly 13 Years Ago

Where is this now?

End of 90 silent Winter Kyol Che, Bong Am Sah Temple, 2009-ish. Breaking 90 days of silence. It was a tough experience as the first Westerner ever admitted into the practice there in the temple’s 1600 year-old history. One year of training under sometimes military situations. Strong practice in three meditation halls. Hard farm work. Tough dudes in this Shawshank (the nuns are in a separate temple managed by themselves and no male authorities).
