Thanks to your donations other people can join Kyol che at reduced costs. Each 20 euro you pay is a one day scholarship for other participant. Traditionally in Korea supporting the retreats and the Temple brings merit to the donor and the job that provides for the spiritual practice.

We also encourage you to pay more than the regular price. Thank you!
