Outing in Kokee

Each year the monks take three days during the Full Moon to do nothing on our lovely little island. Over the last retreat, six of the monks headed up to the mountains for three nights at Kokee's Camp Sloggett. They hiked through the beautiful mountain forests, meditated to the silence of nature, and sat together around the camp fire to talk about deep things. The monks live busy lives of service, often filled to the brim with their seva. These few days at the rural lodge were a great chance to practice the art of being rather then doing, which Gururdeva felt was so necessary to our lives.

    Well, I have to say it…..they kinda look like some sort of rock group in their whites and shades! I know, lots of you were thinking it, weren’t you?

    What a lovely and contemplative way to spend a couple of days….sky, earth, trees, the breathing planet.
