Retreat Description:
A group of 14-19 year olds and Spirit Rock Family Program teachers will travel from Spirit Rock to Abhayagiri Monastery in Redwood Valley, Mendocino County, for a weekend of camping and practice with the Abhayagiri Monastic Community. Teens participate in the monastic schedule, which includes periods of meditation and chanting, working and hiking on the land, and teachings from the monastics. To maintain a lifestyle of simplicity while at the monastery, participants will take the Eight Precepts, which include not overindulging in sleep and not eating a full meal after 12 noon.

Although there is no registration fee, a minimum $200 deposit is required to reserve a space in this retreat. We have determined that the deposit is necessary to ensure the registrant’s commitment to attending the retreat, and to reduce last minute cancellations. As this is a dana retreat, you’re welcome to request all or part of your deposit back after the retreat. Offering this retreat on a dana basis makes our monastic retreats accessible to more people. Your generosity and gratitude in the form of a financial contribution, no matter how much, ensures the continuation of this unique and rare opportunity of practice for your teen and future teens.
