An easy stroll into the deep primeval woods of our region. Mediation, ritual, contemplation and community. NEW: we'll stop at Nooksack Falls, please bring sack lunch.
Join sangha for a Zen experience in the Old Growth forest remnant off of Mount Baker Highway. This spot is the home to the oldest living beings of our local area. We make this visit annually to connect with the wisdom and peace of the grove.
Parking is limited to 2 or 3 spots and carpooling is essential. Vaccinated participants are invited to join the carpooling. Meet at the downtown Bellingham Food Coop at 9:00am, or at the grocery store in Nugent's Corner at 9:30am. After our easy walk, meditation and ritual in the Old Growth grove, we'll stop at Nooksack Falls with a sack lunch at the largest waterfall in our watershed. We'll return to the Dharma Hall at about 3:00pm.
