"Of wisdom purified surmounting both past and the future, gone beyond time, and in every way free from sense-bases, such a one rightly would wander in the world.”

SNP 2.13

People have been wandering the earth for thousands of years, often in groups, relying on each other for protection, support and belonging. This retreat is designed to reconnect people to the primal activity of moving through a landscape with a group of fellow travelers. For more experienced meditators, this retreat will provide an opportunity to explore the origins of meditation and to reexamine what it means to retreat. For those new to meditation, this retreat offers the opportunity to discover meditation in the natural environment as it was first conceived. All participants will have the opportunity to deepen their connection with the natural world and to gain a renewed perspective of oneself and place in society.

Spend a week under an open sky, supported by stunning rock formations, bright stars, and dharma friends. Together we will listen to the landscape, breath, cook, and practice as we traverse this sacred land.
