A Day of Hiking in White Mountain, NH, and One Hour of Meditation at the Summit with Master Zhou

Where:  Mount Major, New Hampshire. A day of hiking trip to the summit and then it will follow by an hour of meditation on top of the summit. Easy and moderate trails about three-hour hiking. We will be back to Xuan Ju Daoist Center for a bonfire.  

When: Saturday, October 23, from 9:00 to 5:00 pm EST
meeting at 9:00 am at Xuan Ju Daoist Center

What is it?  A NEW event! Since Master Zhou loves to scale and explore the mountains of NH, he thought about bringing his students, new and old, to experience the joy of savoring the fresh air of the mountain and the burst of fall foliage where the vistas of hues of gold, green, orange and burnt red are spread out as far as our eyes can see. What's more, an hour of meditation at the summit under the guidance of Master Zhou -- soaking in the magic of the changing season.  And then lunch Al Fresco! 

We will descend the mountain in relaxing fashion in time to reach Xuan Ju at around 4:00 pm.  And if you are up for it, we will communally prepare supper and then follow up by a bonfire to end a beautiful Autumn day. 

Is this for me? 
Everyone is invited to join. The nature of this excursion is to hike the mountain taking in the scenery as we climb up. Mount Major trails are graded easy to moderate. If you are a new student and has not done climbing before, we suggest to prepare by working out in the gym or take some physical activities before the trip. 

What to bring?
Hiking shoes are recommended but comfortable sneakers with tractions will do. Bring a jacket, or wind breaker, and a day pack. Please pack your own lunch for the Al-Fresco. And bring plenty of water.
