Awake in the Wild at Pagosa Springs, CO

Tara Mandala 4000 USFS Road 649, Pagosa Springs

Following ancient traditions that value the transformative power of nature, this retreat will be spent meditating outdoors in the natural beauty and mystery of the San Juan mountains at Tara Mandala.  Whether during sunrise and sunset meditations, listening to the soothing sounds of the breeze, or sitting graced in the stillness of the aspen trees, we will open to the profound serenity and wisdom of nature.

This silent retreat is grounded in the practice of mindfulness – the capacity to be awake and naturally present to ourselves and our environment. Participants will learn to bring this receptive presence to develop a contemplative relationship with nature.
By cultivating an inner quiet and curious spirit we can learn from nature as a perennial teacher. The natural world reveals timeless Dharma teachings that support a natural letting go and a wise relationship to all experience. Participants will also discover how meditative time outdoors leads to beautiful states of joy, peace, wonder, love and connection with oneself, each other and the larger web of life.
