Portland Rules[!] at WRC

Where: Western Retreat Center
When: Friday October 12 - Sunday October 14

Please join us for the WRC meditation retreat, which will be fully organized and ran by Portland Sangha. A bunch of our friends from Oregon will fly and drive down to WRC to host this retreat, cook meals, set the schedule and facilitate the program. Due to the remote location and harsh conditions, the activities at WRC are usually arranged by the Sangha from the different DW centers, and it never happened before that one city center got inspired to independently host and manage the entire weekend program. Maybe we see a beginning of a nice trend, which might open all sorts of opportunities for increased cooperation among the regional Sangha. Thanks Portland, for leading the way!

Additionally, DWBC Portland decided to donate to WRC a small solar kit and set of LED lights, which will illuminate the outdoor kitchen area and make this most popular evening hang-out spot even more cozy and attractive – Thanks Guys! We are planning to install the solar panels on Friday and test-drive the system over the rest of the weekend.

We hope that many friends from the local centers in California [and beyond] will join us at WRC during this exciting weekend to celebrate the Oregonians’ generosity, dedication, friendliness, restlessness and sultry humor, as well as to taste their great beer, Tillamook cheese, Marionberry pie and Voodoo doughnuts.
