To deepen our experience & pathway, the Top of the Month Meditations will now begin in silence. Each session will have a set program. It will start with chants (with explanation), pranayama (cultivation of respiration) and the ringing of the bell. Then, we will have a minimally guided 30 minute meditation (vipassana, metta or tonglen, etc.). This will be followed by a dhamma talk and shares from the group.

Yoga on the Rocks ~ since 2007

Wednesday October 27, 2021 9:00am-6:00pm

The Old Ragged Mountain, Shenandoah National Park, Virginia USA

A stout hike for some, a fun romp in the Appalachian range for others. We’ve been up & down this trail for many years now, big groups, small groups and have decided for a *new mid week date.* The Ole Ragged Mount has become one of the most popular hikes in Shenandoah National Park of Virginia. We intend to respect the land, the park and all of God’s flora & fauna by trekking lightly on a Wednesday.


Meet in front of the ranger station between 9:00am-10:00am

Wear sturdy hiking shoes, bring your lunch, snacks & at least 2 liters of water

Be in good physical condition & be a conscious steward for nature
