Sliding Scale: $25 – 75. Code RK1H19.
Open to all self-identified POC.
As we become more mindful and begin to acknowledge the prolonged, persistent, and spiritual thievery of racial suffering and injustice, the energy we need to heal becomes available to us, and we can use this energy creatively to serve and heal a larger heart. In our time together, we will hear teachings from the Buddha and from Ruth King’s new book, Mindful of Race: Transforming Racism from the Inside Out, and explore what suffering has taught us about tenderness, and how expressing ourselves artistically is cultural medicine, supporting freedom, generosity, and social harmony.
Online registration for our programs is available until 12 noon of the last business day prior to the day of the event (e.g. online registration for a Monday program ends at 12 noon on the prior Friday). There is an additional $5 fee for registering at the door. If you can’t attend an event you registered for, please see our Cancellation Policy.

The emphasis during this retreat will be on the continuity of awareness in all activities, which stabilizes and balances the mind. Relaxed acceptance of our moment-to-moment experience becomes the platform for investigation and wisdom. Particular attention will be paid to the attitudes in the mind that condition our understanding. This retreat is suitable for both beginners and experienced meditators. We welcome people from all life experiences, backgrounds and diverse communities.
Financial assistance is available for all Spirit Rock residential retreats. Our scholarship rate is $40/night and available for all those with financial hardship with special funds allocated to People of Color (POC), folks with serious medical conditions, and young adults (age 18-26). Scholarships are budgeted per retreat and we receive a greater number of requests for funding than we have funds to offer.

All applicants must apply online. Please contact the Registration Department (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you do not have access to a computer. No retreat fees will be collected at this time, it is purely registration for the lottery portion of the process.
After the lottery closes, applicants will be notified by email of their status by 5:00pm on Friday, March 29, 2019; please refrain from calling before this deadline.

Also remember that the cost above is priced as a sliding scale. Please pay at the highest level of the sliding scale that you can afford. This allows others who need to pay less the opportunity to attend. Fee is for room and board. Teaching and staffing of the retreats is by donation at the end of the retreat.
