Wilderness Backpacking Sesshin: a weeklong meditation retreat

August 25 - September 1, 2024

Sunday August 25, 2024 - 12:00 pm to Sunday, September September 1, 2024 - 12:00 pm

Previous meditation retreat and backpacking experience is highly recommended.

Immerse yourself in the silent wisdom of the forest, mountains, and sky. Allow these wild places to awaken within you and inform how you experience and embody this life. This retreat is an invitation to dive deep into the present moment experience, supported by the spacious clarity, enduring stability, and flowing life energy of the wilderness.

This is an intensive meditation retreat. We will set up a base camp and follow a structured daily schedule. Each day will consist of about seven hours of seated meditation, a period of meditative movement, and guided hiking (or optional trail running). One night hike and some solo meditation will also be incorporated into schedule.

Each person will be expected to carry their own gear, plus additional communal items. A required packing list will be provided and all food is included in the retreat fee.

Space is limited, please contact Soten Lynch, at 503-308-3139, to RSVP or email Soten@zendust.org to ask any questions. Cost: $380 ($300 members). Non-refundable deposit of $200.00 due by August 1st.

 

This is the first of two wilderness sesshins we are offering through ZCO in 2023. To see our other offerings click HERE
