We will gather at a meeting place on Blue Lakes Road in Hope Valley, CA and drive together a short distance to the retreat site – a short walk from the road on level terrain. Once we settle in the meadow, we will alternate between sitting and walking for the day, with a break for lunch and a dharma talk.
TIME: Gather at parking lot by 9:30 am; back to meeting place by 4:00 pm.
EXPERIENCE: No previous meditation experience is necessary, but you must be fit enough to walk a total of about a mile.*
BRING: Water, lunch, something to sit on (lightweight camping chair or camping pad), sunscreen, hat, mosquito repellent, jacket, shawl or sweater, raincoat if the weather looks stormy, and a daypack to put all that in.
COST: There is no cost for the retreat, but there will be an opportunity to offer Dana to the teacher
LEADING THE DAY: Having spent a lifetime in the mountains and forests, Dharma Zephyr lay leader Anne Macquarie’s practice recently has become centered upon caring for the earth through organizing to alleviate climate change and other environmental challenges.
