Time of posting equates to 9 am Korean standard time on the above date, coinciding with the start of today’s activities. The programme is very full so we are unlikely to post updates of what we’ve been doing, but we hope this schedule will allow you to be with us in spirit today. There will be daily posts for each day’s schedule. For an overview of the Pilgrimage, please see: http://magoism.net/mago-academy/2014-mago-pilgrimage-to-korea/programs-and-schedule/
