Drala Hike to Blair Lake and Meadows

September 6 / 8:45 AM - September 6 / 5:00 PM

All are welcome to explore the magic of the natural world on this 5-mile round-trip drala hike to Blair Lake and Meadows. No cost.

We'll spend a good portion of our hike walking in silence, allowing ourselves to experience the sights, sounds, smells, and textures of the natural world. Sense perceptions are the doorway to nowness. 

We'll also enjoy social time and conversation.

We'll carpool to the trailhead which is about 15 - 20 miles out of Oakridge.

Meet at 8:45 am at the parking lot of Open Sky Shambhala for a 9:00 am. departure. We'll return by 5 pm.


  • A lunch

  • Water

  • Sunscreen

  • Possibly insect repellent

Please contact Kersten Carr at or 541-285-8937 if you plan to come so we can have an idea of our carpool needs.

"...if we open our minds, if we open our eyes, if we open our hearts, we will find that this world is a magical place.  It is magical not because it tricks us or changes unexpectedly into something else, but because it can 'be' so vividly and brilliantly."- Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
