RETREAT TO BE HELD ON THE LAND!
OPEN TO ALL: Indigenous people from around the world and allies.
This residential retreat will provide a conceptual framework and practice guidelines for Mindful “Indigenous Presence” meditation—a way of coming into harmony with the present moment and our world—and provides space for acceptance, and the cultivation of clarity, confidence, resilience and strength. This practice maps the fundamental wellness-optimizing characteristics of Indigenous Ceremony onto the methods and outcomes of another ancient traditional expression of sacred presence, that of mindfulness and lovingkindness meditation.
This retreat will be instructional, experiential, and interactive. Together we will explore the techniques of mindfulness/insight meditation and come to understand the strength-based and resilience optimizing characteristics of retreat as Ceremony.
Scholarship offerings: In returning to the land, we will also be returning to our pre-pandemic scholarship options and policies. All scholarship rates require a minimum fee ($50/night). While we are not able to offer “no one turned away”-type of scholarships for in-person retreats, they are still available for online offerings.

- $100 fee* when you cancel two or more days before the retreat (*fees reduced to half for scholarship participants)

Dates: Monday to Friday, October 4-8, 2021 (5 days). A daily schedule will be posted closer to the retreat.
Sliding Scale: $125-$1500, PLUS a donation to the teacher(s). Code 298R21.
Please Note: This retreat is offered online only. We invite you to try this creative form of practice as we take care of one another and respond skillfully to COVID-19.
Spirit Rock warmly welcomes all self-identified Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) who are nourished by Buddhist teachings of lovingkindness and compassion. These practices help us relate to ourselves and the world from a place of love, clarity, and empowerment.
Lovingkindness supports our hearts’ natural capacity to respond with love, warmth, and tenderness. Over time, we develop a sense of interconnectedness with all creation.
Compassion practice gently turns us toward our suffering caused by an unfriendly world. It helps us meet our inner critic with clear-seeing and kindness.
This retreat will include Dharma talks, group discussions, silent sitting, and mindful walking periods.
All are welcome! No one will be turned away for lack of funds as space allows. For more information, please email Registration@spiritrock.org.
