The second Sunday of the month (normally), meeting at 9am
Each month, we connect with the sacred in the forest, on the mountain, at the water--after all, God is in all places already.
We walk, we talk, we also walk without talking. And we sit. In silence. And we are grounded.
Would you come with us?
