This year we have been experimenting with hiking and climbing trips. With two retreats completed, we are now ready to offer our third trip to the Golden Trout Wilderness in the Sierra Nevada mountains.
Come experience the great outdoors with a small number of other retreat attendees and the monastics of Deer Park Monastery.
This one week backpacking trip in the Sierra Nevada mountains will entail approximately 7-9 miles of walking with a fully-loaded backpack per day. Participants will bring their own backpacking gear, including a shelter, sleeping system, and personal cooking stove and meals for backpacking. In addition to daily mindful backpacking in the backcountry, we will follow a full schedule including sitting meditation, short Dharma talks, Dharma sharing, and deep relaxation.
Attendance is by application only. You can begin by completing the short application now. Retreat dates are July 17-23, 2022.
