Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd August
There will be a day’s walk into Yengo National park from our bush zendo, Kodoji on Saturday, led by Will Moon. This is a wonderful way to learn about the land surrounding our property and connect with sangha members.
Feel free to drive up to Gorricks for the Friday night so you can have a relaxing time with friends before the walk. We will start the walk on Saturday at 9am.
If you are interested in joining us please email Will or call 0400 106 163 to let him know if you’re coming on Friday or Saturday, so we can await your arrival.
Walking around the valley has its challenges. However, the hard work is often worth the effort. There are great views, and we get to explore the mysterious country that is beyond the trees and ridges that we look upon when sitting mindfully gazing up during our sesshins. A chance to become intimate with the Turpentines, Bloodwoods, Angophoras and the ancient sandstone laid down more than 200 million years ago. So a few things to think about for those who might want explore some of the wilderness around Kodoji with its little hidden treasures.
Your walking gear should include sturdy footwear, long sleeves and long pants, hat, small backpack, wet weather gear, spare warm clothes, sufficient water to keep you going throughout the day. Aim for 2 litres. Some high energy goodies to eat and share. Chocolate brownies are always welcome. And we’ll each take a packed lunch – sandwich and fruit, or whatever you like to eat. It’s important to bring a sense of humour for when you find yourself entangled in a lawyer vine, or have become best buddies with a leech, or slipped over on your bum for the tenth time. You may want to bring a camera, or a pad to write or sketch.
