I did a story on a Buddhist monastery in Oregon last year. I have to admit that I walked in with a negative preconception about sitting around and chanting most of the day. However, I have to admit that something about their spirit infected me. I find myself making small rock piles whenever I go camping. Something just feels so right about seeing the balance in those rock piles.
