Even if you aren’t really a ‘spiritual person’, visiting a monastery and going on a meditational retreat might be one of the most profound experiences of your life.
Not only will the entire experience be incredibly inspirational and empowering, you will also learn a lot more about yourself. In turn those newly acquiredskills and insights can then be used to take the quality of your life to the next level.
Obviously there are countless monasteries to choose from and it depends a lot on your budget and where you live. Personally, I’m a big fan of various Oriental philosophies so visiting monasteries in India, Tibet, orThailand always made sense.
Ofcourse, it doesn’t necessary have to be Buddhist monastery. It could be anywhere, in any religion or philosophy and depends a lot on your personal preferences.
Keep in mind that it doesn’t have to be expensive. There are a lot of monasteries who offer people free food, shelter and (meditational) sessions in exchangefor a small donation.
What are you waiting for buddy? Go on a philosophical adventure and enjoy the journey!
