I definetelly would do it again. It was a great way to experience a part of japanese culture. After the meditation section a traditional japanese breakfast was served. Although the monk in charge did´t speak any english at all, He was very kind and made me feel at home by giving me the leaflets with all the introduction and explanations in english. Thank you veltra Team for all the support! xoxo

I finally gave Zen meditation a try.
It was very refreshing although I didn't realize it was so difficult to empty my mind.
I am still not totally sure what that means...

First, we received the monk's precious lecture, then 2 15-minute meditation times.
For some reason, the second one seemed shorter. Maybe your concentration increases as you try more?
I want to try again next time I visit Kyoto!
