NATURE & BUDDHA-NATURE
SUMMER NATURE-BASED RETREAT
JULY 29-AUG. 3, 2019
Registration details TBA.
Save the dates!
This nature-based retreat provides a special opportunity to explore the power of a silent meditation retreat while immersed in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. We will participate in the ancient tradition of spending time in the natural world as a support for spiritual practice and inquiry. Wild nature can become a profound teacher and guide on our path of awakening. Through enhanced openness and quiet, we have the opportunity to explore deeply the truth of our own nature.
We will meet on private property nestled in the high forest of the mountains at about 6500’. This retreat will offer a variety of sitting and moving meditation practices, dharma talks, meditation instruction, and an opportunity for deep personal exploration. During part of the day you will be able to create your own schedule. We will spend as much of our practice time outdoors as weather permits. Lodging is in the main building or camping by the pond. Meals are provided. Bathrooms, outdoor pond, indoor pool, hot tub and sauna are available.
