We had a full day out of the woods here at Riverbend Park on Saturday. Sitting meditation, walking meditation, open-eyed meditation, and lots of other forms of meditation were shared among our group of 20.
Many people commented on how easy it was to open awareness into space when that space is filled with such sound and beauty.
Even though it was almost 90°, we settled ourselves on top of a hill deep in the woods and any little breeze that came through cooled us off under shade from high trees. A wonderful (re)treat.
If you can find a day to "wander like a happy dog," schedule it soon!
