An easy stroll into the deep primeval woods of our region. Mediation, ritual, contemplation and community.
Join sangha for a Zen experience in the Old Growth forest remnant off of Mount Baker Highway.
Parking is limited to 2 or 3 spots and carpooling is essential. Meet at the Dharma Hall at 9:00am, or at the grocery store in Nugent's Corner at 9:30am. We'll return to the Dharma Hall at about 2:00pm.
The program includes silent exploration of the Old Growth, meditation, and a ceremony of gratitude to nature.
To extend the practice day consider arriving for the 6am - 9am Saturday morning practice at the Dharma Hall which, as it's the first Saturday of the month, includes potluck breakfast.
