led by Chris Fortin
and Lane Olson
In the Green Gulch Farm Yurt
The temple bell dies away
The scent of flowers in the evening
Is still tolling the bell
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.
