Retreat Description:
This popular retreat will include family activities, young people’s groups, a parent program and free time. Dharma activities include songs, stories, skits, games, art, time on the land, a campfire, council practice, parent discussions, meditation for all and dharma talks. The Family Retreat is a true retreat experience that brings us face-to-face with our own experience and may bring up deep emotions.

In support of our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Plan, Spirit Rock prioritizes families of color and diverse family groups in creating the Family Retreat experience. We also prioritize Spirit Rock Family Program Council members in honor of their service and to enhance the retreat experience for others.
