Our periodic outdoor contemplations will include the Basilica of St. Francis in Santa Fe, meditative walks through trails in the Sangre de Cristo foothills, and visits to natural and Native American environments that embody the beauty and fragility of our world.

     We will be adding photos and descriptions of the various sites that will be part of the retreat excursions.

The Santa Fe area is surrounded by ancient and sacred Native American sites, some historical, such as the Bandelier National Monument, and some still inhabited and cherished by local indigenous people. As part of our connection to the sacred quality of mother earth and those who venerate that, we will include one or more of these venues in our contemplative excursions.
