with Shundo David Haye and Jokai Carolyn Cavanagh
at Green Gulch Farm Zen Center
Saturday, August 9, 2014
9 am - 5 pm Take to the hills around Green Gulch for a wide-open day of photography. Grass, trees and lands which are embraced by this teaching together radiate a great light.
Green Dragon Temple will be the starting point for our day of meditation, hiking and taking pictures. We will settle in our bodies; we will hike trails in the area, up to Coyote Ridge and down to the ocean; we will use photography as a way to be completely present with our surroundings, to discover the beautiful around us on a large and small scale, and to be invigorated by the wonders of nature.
Come prepared for a hike in the hills around Green Gulch. Please bring hiking gear, including clothes suitable for the fog, and a camera. Please also bring water bottles, a bag lunch and hiking snacks for the day.
This retreat is suitable for all levels of practitioners and photographers. Fees:
$70; $63 current SFZC members; $56 limited income. Some partial scholarships available. (About Registration, Scholarships and Cancellations
