We have been attending classes at the Monastery for the last 3-4 months. As a young couple, we were very pleased with our first level experience. Apart from being able to tame our "monkey minds", we are able to establish a greater spiritual connection with each other. Meditation is not an easy endeavor but practice makes perfect. Also, we want to say that all the Shifus are very warm, kind and patient. We are eager to start the advanced class.
