Hello Pilgrims and WELCOME!
Plans are underway for the 2015 BBP and we hope you will join us in the way that’s right for you. Each year, over the last weekend in September (26-27, 2015), a merry band of cyclists and support volunteers pedal our way from Woodacre to Redwood Valley, CA, visiting Buddhist spiritual centers on our way. This event happens solely on the generosity and donations of everyone participating through acts of service and volunteering, to the gifting of food, gear and dana to cover expenses, lodging and the teachings.
While many of the Coordinator roles have been filled for this year, we still need volunteers to assist and “shadow” these positions, with the intention of taking over this role in 2016. If you’re interested in supporting the BBP in any of these areas of leadership, please contact this year’s Ride Coordinator, Zachary Smith.
The 2015 BBP theme is “Contentment and Gratitude” (as referenced in the Mangala Sutta) – more teachings to come! Over the next month, more information will be available for you as you prepare for this year’s Pilgrimage. As it becomes available, please visit this website to:
- Download the flyer for the 2015 BBP & share it with your sangha and/or cycling friends
- Sign-up to host or attend a Training Ride
- Register to volunteer or ride in this year’s BBP!!!
AND, if you haven’t already, PLEASE join the DharmaWheels Announcement Group. By being part of this listserve, you will receive relevant information about training rides, Pilgrimage updates and DharmaWheels-endorsed activities (NO flooding your inbox with unrelated information, we promise!!!)
THANK YOU for your interest and support in this unique and very special event. We look forward to seeing you soon,
Hime Levine, Paul Ries, Zachary Smith, Lauren Van Ham, Liz Walton
