The Natural World as Teacher

with Dr. Eva Wong and Ashe Acharya John Rockwell

September 8 - 10

The natural world is the gateway to the Tao. The sun, moon, and stars carry the essences of the celestial energy of the Tao. Mountains, rivers, rocks, and earth carry the qi of the land. Trees, flowers, grasses, and animals are filled with life force. Clouds, fog, and mist display the interaction of yin and yang. Join Eva Wong and John Rockwell in experiencing the natural world in the beautiful hills and valley of Karme Choling. Learn how to find a place in nature where you can sit quietly, reflect, and be with the phenomenal world. Open your awareness to the energy of the land. Find out how to use the Chinese calendar to guide your diet, lifestyle, and activity as you move through the seasons. The natural world is intelligent, luminous, and alive. It is the best teacher of the Tao. Let us learn from it.

The program begins with registration from 3pm-6pm on September 8th. Departure is at 6pm on September 10th.
