This is the Yin lounge. I’m currently sitting where that far pillow is!

This is the Yang lounge. I just realized, looking at this photo, that I messed up the pillows and forgot to put them back in their right place 😳
Yes, there’s a big TV at the monastery 😂
Those double doors are the main entrance. Sometimes I sit on those couches. Above is a loft. The door on the right leads to the pantry and kitchen, and behind me is the fireplace which you can see in one of the early pictures above (in the “wake up” section)
I utterly failed at getting a good loft photo, but, uh, there’s a loft, and you can also work there.
