July 11 (10-11:30 AM, Saturday)
We are very excited to have eleven Won-Buddhist students and three priests from YoungSan University and Monastery coming to visit us. YoungSan is the sacred birthplace and enlightenment site of our founding teacher, Ven. Sotaesan.
The students will join our Saturday meditation service, adding the pure energy of their beautiful singing and powerful chanting. Come and rest your hearts in the healing sounds by these life time dedicated practitioners on their journey to priesthood. Invite your voice to be one with theirs during the moment of group chanting. Allow your spirit to dance in joy, clarity, and centeredness.

Rev. Eung-Joon Lee did his undergraduate and graduate studies of music at KayMyong University in Korea. He subsequently found the dharma path and took a vow to become a Won-Buddhist minister. He was ordained as a Kyomnuim in 2006 after completing undergraduate seminary at YongSan Won-Buddhism Monastery and his Masters of Won-Buddhism at the Won Institute in Glenside, PA. Along his spiritual journey he was encouraged to follow his passion in music, which led to continuing his musical studies at Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University. He has been able to bring musical inspiration to lay and ordained practitioners on their dharma path. Rev. Eung-Joon has released three musical albums. He is currently working as a professor at YoungSan University.
