"...... if we open our eyes, if we open our minds, if we open our hearts, we will find that this world is a magical place. It is magical not because it tricks us or changes unexpectedly into something else, but because it can be so vividly and brilliantly."
- Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche.
Join us for a Drala Hike to see glorious alpine wildflowers and picture perfect views of Mt Hood. We will combine hiking with meditation and will be observing noble silence.
