Muir Beach, CA
The clouds give rest
To the moon beholders
Please join us for a day of practice at beautiful Green Gulch Farm as we sit in circle in the yurt and weave together Zen, ancient myth, deep earth, and the awakened eye of the creative. The day will include meditation, a dharma talk and discussion, and time in the garden (weather permitting).
Fees: The cost of the retreat is $40. Lunch in the dining room is included. There is a separate donation or dana (a Pali word for gratitude) for the teachers.
Please plan to be at the yurt by 9:45 am so that the day will begin on time. Tea will be served and sitting cushions and chairs will be provided.
For further information, contact Chris by email or 707.527.8106; Lane by email or 707.793.7978.
Space is limited, so please register at least a week ahead, by August 17.
