"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
Who would have guessed that this natural wonderland lies behind the paper mill in Camas, WA? The lily fields should be in full bloom. We will combine hiking with meditation and will be observing noble silence. Bring water, lunch, a hat, sunscreen, rain gear, gas money for the driver, and a kneeling pad or something else to sit on for occasional stops for sitting meditation.

Meeting time: 9:00 am rain or shine
Meeting location: Portland Shambhala Center
Total drive time: 1 hour
