Meditation Travel

How wonderful this sounds .. wish I had frequent flyers or just a reason to take a break and visit Korea :)

Get Meditative with Korean Air
Article from New York Times : In Transit (May 13, 2010)

Maybe it’s because air travel has become so stressful: Korean Air is now offering meditation, chanting and a Buddhist temple sleepover as part of a new “Templestay” tour.

Korean Air and Hanjin Travel have teamed up to offer travelers a peek – the tour lasts 24 hours – into the traditional culture of Korean Buddhism and let them relax and rediscover their “true selves” amid peaceful surroundings.

Visitors will get tours of five Korean temples, live the strict life of a Buddhist monk –wakeup time is 4 a.m. sharp – and take part in a formal monastic meal (no talking or wasting of food allowed) and ancient tea-sipping ceremony. There is also time allotted for making beads and lanterns, doing community work, and taking walks in the forest. Tours start at around $175, excluding airfare
