PNW Satsangs Winter Retreat 2018!
Retreat
For 2018, Amma’s Portland Satsang has reserved Wi-Ne-Ma Christian Camp, on the Oregon coast in south Tillamook County, north of Neskowin, near the estuary of the Nestucca River. Not only is it beautiful, but the weather in February often surprises us with sunshine when it might still be raining in Portland.
 
There are paved roads throughout the camp that take you close to your cabin and community buildings. (Rain or shine, there will be no mud). And, there are numerous meeting halls and spaces for a variety of activities that may be scheduled concurrently. Multiple housing options will include teen dorms, snorers’ and couples’ cabins. All spaces will be fully heated, and there are even a mini-golf course, indoor basketball court and game room; a giant slide and children’s playground; and, for daring-do, kayaking around Winema Lake. For hiking, there are 5 miles of beach within a few steps of camp!
 
Mark your calendars today! Invite your friends! There’s plenty of room. Jai Ma!
When: February 16 - 19, 2018
Where: Wi-Ne-Ma Christian Camp, Cloverdale Oregon (Central Oregon Coast)

Tree Planting in honor of Amma’s birthday
Plant by Nov 5
Whidbey Whidbey Satsang group, happy to plant trees for Amma.
 
Will you commit to planting one tree (or more) by Nov 5, to celebrate Amma’s birth? Our goal was to offer Amma a gift of at least 64 trees this year, planted by her PNW satsang children but our pledge drive has already exceeded 160 trees! The numbers are still growing. Will we make it to 200 or more?
 
If you would like to make a pledge write Karuna at karunap108@comcast.net and let her know. When you plant the tree or trees, take photos and send them to her. Check out - How to Plant Trees and How to Plant a Tree - Video
