Mu-sang-sa-temple-Chungcheongnam-do.jpg

Musangsa Temple is located in Gyeryong Mountain in the Chungchongnam-do Province in South Korea, an area well known for attracting many spiritual practitioners throughout history.

Like many Korean Zen temples, Musangsa hosts annually two three-month intensive Zen meditation retreats, known as Kyol Che in the summer and winter. Kyol che is a time when one can completely devote oneself to meditation practice away from worldly distractions and investigate one’s life closely. The retreat at Musangsa is open to international monks, nuns, and anybody who wishes to practice together in a traditional Korean Zen temple setting.

Short retreats, special events, and workshops are offered at the temple. A community of monks, nuns, and practitioners reside at Musangsa throughout the year to immerse themselves in Zen training. Many teachings are offered in English and Korean.
