Details

This is the first official public walk! I'm both nervous and excited since I normally host these events privately. As the first event I am keeping it to an optional donation of $10. What would be really appreciated is your feedback (what worked, what did not work) since I am always looking to improve.

This walk will be on monastery grounds. This is not a Buddhist event, nor do we have any affiliation with the monastery, HOWEVER please respect their preference (https://www.baus.org/en/visit-us/faq/plan-a-visit/) for modest clothing (no shorts, tank tops, or overly revealing outfits) and if you pack food, keep it vegetarian.

The property opens at 9 and I will be there early to meet you. Please arrive 10-15 minutes early since we will not wait very long before starting.

After the walk the dining hall serves a $6 vegetarian lunch noon-1pm and visitors are welcome to explore the grounds as well as the Great Buddha Hall which is certainly a sight to see! I plan to mediate there after lunch so if you are interested in a meditation primer just ask!

All participants must sign a simple liability waiver at the start of the event to allow us peace of mind in offering our walks to the public.
