Studies have shown that increasing the level of oxygen in your brain increases the levels of serotonin. With nature excursions being part of Bodhi Casa’s Transitional Living Program, a three-day trip to the Eastern Sierras was just what the men needed to get a healthy dose of oxygen.

Eleven men from Bodhi Casa camped on land that has been mandated by BLM (Bureau of Land Management) as a reserve to ensure that natural, cultural and historic resources are maintained for present and future use.

It was a relaxing three-day weekend where the men were able to enjoy the beauty and silence of the deep desert. As the men scrambled and hiked during the day, at night they would sit by a fire, under a blanket of stars to have a meeting as storms rolled through death valley nearby.
