Path of Happiness: a Mobile Monastery on the Appalachian Trail

This past spring, Susan Bachman drove her Honda CRV hauling a 5×8 u-haul trailer for 3000+ miles to support a walking retreat along 450 miles of the Appalachian Trail from the Blue Cliff Monastery to Washington, D.C. In her presentation, she’ll share some of her experiences and reflections on mindfulness practice/practicalities.

Susan Bachman lives in Wellfleet, MA, and worked in the public school systems in 8 states during a 36 year career as an elementary teacher and library media specialist. She is also mom to Phap Luu and has visited Plum Village, Deer Park, and other monasteries over the past 14 years.
