Waking Up in the Wild: Mountains & Rivers

  • Carmel Valley, CA United States (map)

"I come to realize that mind

is no other than mountains and rivers and the great wide earth,

the sun, the moon and stars"

— Dogen

Join us as we come together by the river in Carmel Valley for meditation, celebration, nourishment and community.

In this embodied meditation retreat, we take refuge in the bounty of the natural world and explore our limited notions of self and our connection to the infinite Self.

Using walking, lying down, eating, and sitting meditations, we can experience the stability of the mountains, the fluidity of the rivers, and the openness and curiosity of a child.

Telling our stories, we connect with our inherent wisdom and joy, the wisdom of our ancestors, and the spirits of the earth. Being in the spaciousness and the rhythms of the natural world, we remember who we are.
