Concentration and insight are like two wings of a bird: each is essential for traversing the path of practice and liberation. Without a concentrated mind, it is hard to see deeply into the nature of things—to arrive at the roots rather than flit around in the branches. Without turning this concentrated mind to clearly observe the nature of our own body, heart, and mind we do not touch the wisdom that transforms the way we live and love and relate to all of life. Please join us in following the Buddha’s invitation to “come and see” for yourself what is possible when we learn to move in the deep and clear waters of the heart.

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 on 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.
