It was a wonderful change of scenery from my busy life. Being among our fellow meditators, and away from our daily grind, really allow me to slow down, relax, decompress and fine tune my meditation practice. I really enjoy the direct contemplation exercise along the amazing scenic trail in the redwoods and the coast. The hike was refreshing. The group discussion around the camp fire really exemplified the spirit of the group--very caring, nourishing and supportive. The group leaders were very knowledgeable, supportive and encouraging in our practice.
 
 
 
 
I look forward to our next hiking/camping meditation retreat. It was a wonderful chance to tune up and reenergize our practice.
