RETREAT TO BE HELD ON THE LAND!
The Buddha’s liberating teachings on the four divine sanctuaries include meditations on universal friendliness, compassion, altruistic joy, and equanimity. Aimed at purifying our hearts and developing concentration, these divine sanctuaries aid our ability to both find inner peace and to powerfully engage with the world. This retreat will deepen our understanding of selfless love and how it ends suffering. Retreatants are encouraged to combine this Lovingkindness Retreat with the previous Elements Retreat to further develop concentration, purify the heart, and learn to integrate these two forms of Buddhist meditation.
Unique opportunity: If you would like a longer retreat period (18 nights), you could attend BOTH The Elements (August 11-18) and the Summer Lovingkindness (August 18-27) retreats back-to-back. We will reserve 50 spaces for this extended retreat opportunity. These spaces sell out quickly, so register as early as possible.
Scholarship offerings: All scholarship rates require a minimum fee ($60/night). Scholarships are limited to TWO per calendar year for on-land retreats. And, while we are not able to offer “pay what you can”-type of scholarships for in-person retreats, they are still available for online offerings as space allows.

Room Occupancy*: We have double and single occupancy rooms. Many of our rooms are single occupancy (only 16 of 80 rooms are double occupancy). We offer a “guaranteed single room” rate and these will be 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.
