You are invited to come and experience the awe-inspiring heights of the High Sierra over the first weekend in August with a group of fellow sadhaks. This three-day Integral Yoga Retreat will include a short hike to a base camp (situated on the shores of a pristine mountain lake), daily discussion groups, fire-side meditations, readings from Savitri and other works, and lots of hikes and swimming. This is an opportunity to immerse yourself in magnificent mountain scenery in the company of a group of fellow sadhaks. No backpacking experience is necessary, nor do you have to be in top physical condition.
Dates: Thursday, August 1 through Sunday, August 4, 1996
On Friday we will carpool from Lodi in the early evening. A few people will be going up Thursday night.
Location: The base camp for the three nights/days will be at Shriner Lake, off of Route 88 in the Mokelumne Wilderness. The drive from Lodi takes 2 1/2 hours.
The hike from the trailhead to the campsite is very easy, rising only a few hundred feet over 1 1/4 mile.
Equipment: You will need a sturdy pair of footwear (hiking boots preferred), a sleeping bag, extra clothes (remember, you will be in the wilderness for four days and three nights), a backpack to carry everything in (packs can be rented at many recreation supply stores such as REI and Sports Mart), toiletries, a flashlight (with extra batteries), and a small first aid kit.
This list only comprises the basics. For a more complete list of backpacker necessities, contact Dave Hutchinson firstname.lastname@example.org (916-734-1174).
