Building a Joyful Home of the Way
- Hello friends of the GWV. I have been waiting near Bishop, CA for someone to
arrive who is interested in attending my winter retreat in Death Valley. He
just arrived so, this is likely to be my last post for a week or two.
Shortly after he arrived a dear friend who also leads wilderness retreats
came to join us and we had a lovely conversation over lunch. During that
conversation he happened to say that he had just heard of 20 acres of land
that is surrounded by national forest and in an isolated canyon, but not far
from Bishop. I recently camped exactly on the spot he spoke of and found it
a truly wonderful place for meditation. My dear friend said the owner of the
land was only asking $100,000 for it.
I thought I would just put out to the GWV community that this might be an
excellent opportunity to build a joyful home for jhana. If you are
interested in considering supporting the emergence of a living western
contemplative tradition, then perhaps this is your opportunity.
Kindest regards, Jhanananda
