Bloom of the Present MEDITATING WITH THE REDWOODS – A Daylong Retreat in Nature
September 13, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
We will meet in a lovely natural open-air amphitheater surrounded by redwoods in Ben Lomond, in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
Enjoy a respite from your busy life and come to the sanctuary of the forest for a day of silence and insight meditation. We will allow the elements of nature to nourish our hearts and spirits and to teach us about presence, letting go and peace. The day will include sitting and walking meditation, as well as instructions on opening to the wisdom of the natural world.
This retreat is offered on a donation basis. Suggested sliding scale donation $40-60. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.
