December 13, 2009

In the spring of 2008, a group of Cornellians journeyed to Mongolia for a block-long immersion into the religion and culture of the area.

In Mongolia, the group encountered a society in which religious practices are being reborn after being forbidden for over sixty years by the communist government. They met with shamans and Buddhist lamas, visited temples and shrines, and attended religious festivals and rituals.

They also experienced the traditional nomadic life of rural Mongolia, including living in yurts and tending animals.
