Glacier Chautauqua -- date change!!!

Please note the slgiht date change for the Glacier NP retreat this fall.

New Dates: September 26 - 30.

Hope to see you on the mountain. Specifically, on the side of the mountain, not the top:

The only Zen you can find on the tops of mountains is the Zen you bring up there... To live only for some future goal is shallow. It’s the sides of the mountain that sustain life, not the top."

-- Robert Pirgsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcylce Maintenance

Meet me at the Glacier!

WHAT: A vision quest and retreat; a time for replenishment and inspiration; a communal gathering in the midst of Nature's majesty; and,
a chance to see the glaciers, before they're gone!!!

WHEN: September 26 - 30, 2006

WHERE: Glacier National Park, Montana

Join me for a camping trip in Glacier NP. I'm taking the train up from West Virginia. We can use this time to connect and discuss nature, life, and visions for the future before I'm off to India.

Mark your calendars for this incredible experience!
