This retreat is lottery-style in order to ensure that spaces are available for a diverse student body. Registering for a lottery does not ensure a space in the program. Lottery applications accepted through the end of the day on June 14, 2022. First round notifications will be sent out approximately 2 weeks after the lottery closes. You will be asked to complete your registration details and pay your fees within 48 hours of the offer.
RETREAT TO BE HELD ON THE LAND!
This retreat will emphasize quieting the mind, opening the heart, and developing clarity and depth of practice. Traditional meditation instruction will be combined with a spirit of lovingkindness, with silent sitting and walking meditation, Dharma talks, and practice meetings with the teachers.
IMPORTANT – Details on our current COVID Safety Protocols for In-person Retreats. Subject to change.
Sliding Scale: $450-$4320; 9 nights including food and lodging.
Please consider paying at the highest rate that you can afford: your generosity supports Spirit Rock, staff, and your fellow practitioners. Any amount offered above the Base rate is a tax deductible donation to Spirit Rock, and your generosity will enable and support the participation of others. These fees do not include dana for the teachers.

*Scholarship offerings: In returning to the land, we will also be returning to our pre-pandemic scholarship options and policies. All scholarship rates require a minimum fee ($50/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 with our “Living with Awareness” retreat on March 27, 2022, we will return to double occupancy rooms. Many of our rooms are single occupancy (only 16 of 80 rooms are double occupancy). We will also return to offering 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.
Lottery applications are accepted between May 24, 2022 – June 14, 2022. Applications received after this date are automatically placed on the wait list (they will not be included in the first round of selections).
You will be notified about the lottery results within two weeks of the lottery close date. If you are notified that you have been granted a space, you will have two days to pay a deposit to accept/hold the space. If you don’t accept the space within two days, we will offer it to the next person in line.
