Collectible, Rare, and Valuable
This summer I visited Seoul, South Korea to do research and learn more about their long history of paper making.
While there, I was invited to a tea ceremony at the Bongeunsa Temple near the bustling Coex Convention and Exhibition Center.
At Bongeunsa Temple, I received a private tea ceremony and tour.
Calm and peaceful, the moment I stepped into the tea room, I felt my high blood pressure go down.
All thoughts of the outside world were gone. We spoke softly, listened carefully, and sipped tea.

I had already visited Haeinsa Temple and the all female Donghaksa Temple near Daejeon, but I never had time to stop and really meditate.

I discussed my art projects and prayers were said.
