Flattop Mountain Zen Retreat
The Blue Ridge Zen Group will be having its Fall retreat on Flattop Mountain starting Friday, Oct. 19 with supper at 6:00 P.M., and ending with lunch on the following Sunday, Oct. 21.
The Flattop Zendo is in a wilderness setting at 2400 feet in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Shenandoah National Park.  Our retreats are close to nature, with kinhin on mountain trails, and encouragement from ravens, chipmunks and other wildlife as we sit.
To help cover expenses, we suggest a contribution of $75 to the Blue Ridge Zen Group.  We request prepayment to reserve your place.  There will be a full refund up one week before we start, if you change your mind.  Scholarships are available.  To enroll, email brzen@comcast.net, or call Bill Stephens at 434-973-5435.  Checks may be sent to Blue Ridge Zen Group, 4425 Advance Mills Rd., Earlysville, VA 22936.  We limit attendance to 12 people.
Don't forget to bring a sleeping bag, clothes for colder mountain weather, a towel, work clothes,  a flashlight, and your Buddha Nature.
