Social Sangha

The DBT Social Sangha will be hosting monthly events to get to know your DBT friends. Activities will range from interactions with nature, Temple visits, museums, picnics and much more! It’s an exciting time to be alive so let’s share it with our beautiful community!

MAY 21st at 10AM - Oak Oasis County Preserve

The Social Sangha Crew invites fellow nature-lovers for a "Hike and Haiku" experience on Sunday May 21 at Oakoasis (a San Diego County Park) on Wildcat Canyon Road. This is a 2.5-mile loop with some mild elevation gain and great views of San Vicente reservoir. It's also home to deer, bobcats (usually in hiding), and lots of beautiful flora. 

In a much-beloved tradition, participants will be invited to consider creating haiku inspired by nature along the way (writing materials will be provided for those who want to give this a try.) Google "how to write a haiku" for some tips in advance. 

We will meet at 10 am at the Oakoasis trailhead, which is directly across Wildcat Canyon Road from the El Capitan trailhead. This park is free and there is ample parking. The Crew is currently exploring plans for a late June event, and we'll keep you posted

Carpool details:

Carpool drivers/riders are asked to meet outside DBT at 9:15am You may park across the street at the Education administration parking lot.
