Join us for meditating without walls!

A Daylong Retreat in Nature
Saturday, September 9, 9:30 – 3:30, Ben Lomond, in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
Directions sent upon registration.

EMAIL REGISTRATION REQUIRED, see details below!

The Buddha repeatedly instructed his followers to go to the forest to meditate. Come practice with guiding teacher Carla Brennan and special guest instructor, Nina Wise, the founder of Motion Theater®, an original form of autobiographical improvisation.

Join us among old trees and new growth, allowing the stillness of the forest to deepen our meditation. When we are receptive, the natural world can teach us directly about awareness, embodiment, interconnectedness, compassion and can reveal to us our own True Nature.

In addition, spending frequent quiet time in the forest has been shown to offer many physical and emotional benefits.

We will meet outdoors in a lovely natural amphitheater surrounded by redwoods in Ben Lomond. The day will be mostly in silence, practicing both sitting and moving mindfulness meditations. For both experienced and beginning meditators.

EMAIL REGISTRATION REQUIRED: Email Betsy Blessing at: [email protected] Please put “Meditating with Redwoods Sept. 9” in subject line.
