The Rainbow Sangha is a weekly gathering of self-identified practitioners within marginalized gender and sexuality groups such as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual, two-spirit, and gender non-conforming. Together, we’ll explore the Dharma in ways that welcome our lived experiences and build community that honors our diverse voices.

RETREAT TO BE HELD ON THE LAND!
When you are as full as the full moon
Make the dark night shine.
— Matty Weingast, The First Free Women
An open secret of meditation is that prioritizing ease and well-being leads to a natural and joyful attention. This retreat will focus on deep rest for the first days, inviting the natural capacity of mindful attention to arise from within. We will focus on the Four Noble Truths through teachings and stories that lift up women from a diversity of lineages.
If you identify as a woman and have ever felt like your gender expression, age, ethnicity, body, or sexual orientation was unwelcome in Dharma spaces, please know that our true intention is to welcome all of you. You are especially invited to join us.
The retreat will be held in silence except for teacher-led Q&A, small groups, or other practice meetings.
Scholarship offerings: In returning to the land, we returned to our pre-pandemic scholarship options and policies. All scholarship rates require a minimum fee ($55/night). Scholarships are limited to TWO per calendar year for on-land retreats. And, 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.

Room Occupancy Update*: Starting March 27, 2022, we returned to double and single occupancy rooms. Many of our rooms are single occupancy (only 16 of 80 rooms are double occupancy). We have also returned to offering a “guaranteed single room” rate; these rates are limited (16). This rate guarantees a single room while helping to support scholarships and all we do here at Spirit Rock. The remaining single rooms are not exclusive to the top end of the sliding scale; however, they are initially prioritized for those with serious medical needs.
*Subject to change depending upon COVID-19 situation.
