"...... 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 near Mt Hood to glorious Ramona Falls. We will combine hiking with meditation and will be observing noble silence.
Bring water, lunch, a hat, sunscreen, rain gear, gas money for the driver, and a kneeling pad or something else to sit on for occasional stops for sitting or meditation. Be prepared for any kind of weather as it can be very hot on the trail and then cold near the falls.
