Labor Day King’s Canyon Retreat 2022

Happy Spring to All, be that Easter, Passover, or Ramadan! It seems viral awareness is here to stay, even as everyone celebrates the return to a more “normal” life without masking and lockdowns. With our schools back to a regular schedule, I would hope many families will be planning summer holidays and vacations.

As you see in this post, my friend El Larson and I will be repeating our Yoga and Sound Retreat in King’s Canyon National Park. Last year we had a truly fun event amid the more strict Covid protocols (see the blog post for August 2021). The Retreat facility, Camp Far Horizons, is a beautiful and special place, albeit quite rustic. For hardy yoga friends our Retreat is an exceptional occasion to explore the National Parks of King’s Canyon and Sequoia, with Yoga and Sound Immersion as daily practices. We have chosen the Labor Day holiday as an end of summer opportunity to get away. Please join us if at all possible. I am always happy to hear from each and everyone!

Many Blessings

Namaste

Stehekin, Washington

August of 2014 finds me in the North Cascades National Park in central Washington State. Having never visited the Pacific Northwest,  I was excited to spend the summer on Lake Chelan, 180 miles east of Seattle and 85 miles from Canada. The village of Stehekin is 50 miles by boat from the nearest town. There is no wireless service and telephones are by satellite. Not conducive to blog posting!

Here are a few shots of Stehekin, breathtakingly beautiful! However, full coverage will need to come at a later date when access to the internet is more dependable.

Best Wishes for many beautiful days to round out your summer. Life is to be lived!

On the Road, Once Again

Dear Girls and Boys!

What a summer it has been! I have been away from the blog for several months, largely due to poor internet access. I hope all is well in your lives.

In my last posts I had hoped to settle in Ithaca, NY for a couple of years to participate in a Buddhist Studies program there. As it turned out, I was a bit early. The Namgyal Institute of Buddhist Studies will be moving into a larger facility possibly by 2015. At THAT time they will offer a workstudy program. Oops, a good idea ahead of its time! 🙂 Therefore I have decided to participate in another Buddhist workstudy program in Colorado. As Colorado is a bit of a drive from New York I am once again on the road.

These photos were taken at Assateague State Park in Berlin, MD. Once in Maryland it is possible to travel a good distance on the islands of the Atlantic Ocean to connect to the Mainland via the 17 mile long Chesapeake Bay Bridge. I recommend this excursion to all you East Coasters. Not so wild ponies and beautiful long clean beaches are worthy of the visit. Now it is onto the Tara Mandala Buddhist Retreat Center in Pagosa Springs, CO. I hope to have photos and an update soon.

Blessings and Love for a happy Labor Day holiday. May the “back to school months” bring interesting adventures your way. Namaste
