Join us for our circumambulation of Mt. Erie. This celebration of springtime celebrates Buddha’s Birthday. This year the hike also happens to fall on Easter. The moderate 7-mile hike goes clockwise around this prominent small mountain near the shore of the Salish Sea. Years ago these invaluable public hiking lands were protected with the great help of Bob Rose, Red Cedar's Tenzo (head cook). The hike will be conducted as a group meditation, and along the way we will perform several trail-side rituals.
The hike begins at 10am and we will be done at about 3pm. Carpool from Red Cedar Dharma Hall leaves at 9am, or you may meet us at the trailhead at 10am.
Our first stop on this silent hike will be at the “Poet’s Tree”, a grand Douglas Fir matriarch of the local forest. Please bring a short poem to share in celebration of the local areas' history of hermit Zen poetry as part of our ceremony.
Please dress for the weather, wear sturdy shoes or hiking boots, bring at least two liters of water, trail snacks, and a lunch.
To come on this hike please RSVP with the registration form.
