Drala hikes are monthly contemplative community hikes open to all!
Who would have guessed that this natural wonderland lies behind the paper mill in Camas, WA? Although April is a little too early for the Camas Lillies, this is a gem of a hike close to Portland. We will combine hiking with meditation and will be observing noble silence. Bring water, lunch, a hat, sunscreen, rain gear, gas money for the driver, and a kneeling pad or something else to sit on for occasional stops for sitting meditation.
We hike in noble silence while contemplatively attuning and engaging the senses in the phenomenal world around us. Hikes of all levels are offered with family-friendly events available. Drala hikes are open to everyone, but no dogs please.
