"By relaxing the mind, you can reconnect with that primordial, original ground, which is completely pure and simple.  Out of that, through the medium of your perceptions, you can discover magic, or drala."  

-Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche


Enjoy glorious reflections from the green sparkling waters of Siouxon Creek in southwest Washington.  We will combine hiking with meditation and will be observing noble silence.  Bring water, lunch, a hat, sunscreen, a jacket, gas money for the driver, and a kneeling pad or something else to sit on for occasional stops for sitting or meditation.
