Bushwalking Zazenkai

Saturday 17th August

This year’s bushwalking zazenkai will be run over one day in the Blue Mountains National Park. Due to the cold and wet conditions we have been experiencing this year, we will not be camping overnight. The walk will involve an 8km return trip (4km each way) along a single track to Lions Head. The walk is very scenic and traverses mountain heath terrain with sandstone pagoda formations as well as forested gullies and ridgesides. There are extensive views across the Kedumba and Cox’s Valleys towards Colong, Kanangra and Mount Solitary.

The walk requires a reasonable level of fitness and sure footedness. There is a steep climb up a rough track onto the Lions Head and a steep descent back off the head. The walk will require sturdy footwear, a backpack with food, water (minimum 1.5 litres) and raincoat and hat. Conditions can be cold. If the weather conditions are cold and wet, or windy, the walk will be cancelled.

In the spirit of zazenkai, we will aim to walk in silence and mindfully on the journey out to the headland, perhaps stopping for zazen on some of the large flat rocks along the way. Bring something comfortable to sit on that will fit in your backpack. Once we reach the top of the Lions Head we will break our silence for lunch and then enjoy a social walk back.

Anyone interested should contact Will Moon at wilmoon@gmail.com (one ‘l’, not two), no later than 4 days before the walk.
