Nature and Dharma Daylong Meditation Retreat

Filed under: — Matt @ 2:43 pm


To celebrate the coming of Spring and the launching of the Wilderness Dharma Center, Matt McNeil will be offering a Nature and Dharma daylong retreat on Saturday April 16th. The day will be held entirely outside on a gorgeous part of Mt. Tamalpais in Marin County.

The Buddha’s meditation instructions begin with the advice to “go to the forest or to the foot of a tree.” Come join us as we follow this counsel and spend a day of retreat on the land. Through silent meditations and experiential activities, we will discover how careful attention to the natural world can refine our awareness and remind us of an innate sense of wonder and peace. Examining Nature as teacher, refuge, and expression of “the truth of how things are,” we will explore the ways a deep connection with Nature can inform and enrich our everyday lives. Suitable for beginning and experienced meditators of all traditions.
