Please join us for a day of practice at beautiful Green Gulch Farm as we sit in circle in the yurt and weave together Zen, ancient myth, deep earth, and the awakened eye of the creative. The day will include meditation, a dharma talk and discussion, and time in the garden (weather permitting).

Please plan to be at the yurt by 9:45 am so that the day will begin on time. Tea will be served, and sitting cushions and chairs will be provided.
