Gardening or meditation your thing? Saturday your day? Have we got a September for you! (And, don’t miss one very special Sunday.)
September 5 – The Fall-n-Garden Party at the Hermitage
With summer nearly over, this will be our fifth and final “Garden Party” for the year. The focus will be on Fall and Winter preparations: gardening, firewood splitting and stacking, and house painting. With your help, just two hours of work can make a huge difference readying the Hermitage for the Pah Bah weekend and the coming seasons.
Join us for a potluck meal (arrive by 10:30 am), work period (1:00 pm) and/or tea and Dhamma talk with the monks (3:00 pm “ish”). If you’re coming to the potluck, please let firstname.lastname@example.org know. Wear your gardening and painting clothes!
September 12 – 1/2-Day Meditation Retreat (w/Ajahn Sudanto)
Sit, walk, stand (no, it’s not puppy training!). Deepen your meditation by practicing 1–5 pm at Yoga Samadhi, 177 W Jewett Blvd, White Salmon, WA. Some Dhamma discussion.
September 19 – 1/2-Day Meditation Retreat (w/Luang Por Pasanno)
Luang Por Pasanno, Abbot of Abhayagiri Monastery, will lead a similar 1/2-day retreat from 1-4 pm at Mt. View Grange, 1085 N. Main Ave., White Salmon, WA.
The Very Special Sunday
