June 1, 2013     Spirit Rock, CaliforniaA Day of Practice in Nature with Susie Harrington & Ayya AnandabodhīImmersed for the day in the rolling hills and meadows of Spirit Rock, and in the quiet of our meditation practice, we will investigate our interconnectedness with all of nature. Softening into the sky, the breezes, the rustle of plants, we may feel the invitation to drop the isolating illusion of self identification. We will spend our day together orienting toward the flow of experience, our interdependence, and the the possibility of ease and freedom inherent in seeing things as they truly are.
For more info please see the Spirit Rock website.

Guide: Laura Tyson
Retreat and wait list are full.
This trip is a rare opportunity to travel behind the scenes in the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan, a country steeped in centuries of Buddhist life and practice. Monastic life is active and strong in Bhutan, and we will practice in many monasteries, listen to the chanting monks and nuns, and meet with local Rinpoches who guide monastic life. On most days we will walk – visiting remote temples, exploring villages, or hiking from town to town. We will support our journey and enrich our experience through meditation practice and personal reflection.
