Tour Recap: Experiencing Korean spirituality through Buddha, Buddhism and Seon

On January 19, 2013, members and friends of the RAS Korea met for a new excursion led by Mr. Jun Shin. During the five hours, participants visited many historical relics near Dongguk University including Supyogyo Stone Bridge, the statue of Samyeong (Buddhist monk during the Imjin War who organized monk soldiers) and Jeonggakwon temple.

Daehangno and Hyehwa-dong Tour Recap

Last Saturday I attended the RAS-KB tour to Daehangno and Hyehwa-dong led by Dr. Robert Fouser. The tour was a combination of exploring hanoks (traditional houses) and architecture as well as discussing current real estate laws and policies. Undoubtedly one of the highlights of the tour was learning about the future of traditional neighborhoods, government and corporate policies and redevelopment districts. Although our discussion was nothing short of enlightening, it was far too complicated and detailed to recap in any meaningful way here.
