Please Note: This retreat is offered online only. We invite you to try this creative form of practice as we take care of one another and respond skillfully to COVID-19.

Prerequisite: Before registering you must have already completed a minimum of 21 days of retreat practice, with those retreats being six days or longer to qualify. These retreats should have been silent meditation retreats led by Spirit Rock, IMS, or IRC teachers, or other recognized Insight Meditation teachers. The retreats should have had a similar format to this retreat, with instructions, practices and talks focused on Insight Meditation.

Retreat Description:
Instead of the annual month-long, the February teaching team will lead a 12-day online retreat for experienced students. This extended retreat offers a rare opportunity for sustained and dedicated practice. Emphasis will be on quieting the mind, opening the heart and developing profound clarity and depth of insight practice. Instructions will follow the traditional four foundations of mindfulness, combined with training in lovingkindness and compassion, through a daily schedule of silent stillness and movement meditation, Dharma talks, and practice meetings with teachers.

We will encourage attendees to commit to the spirit of intensive practice with minimal input from the external world, and maintaining silence as much as possible. We look forward to supporting experienced students looking for a more traditional intensive retreat while practicing at home online.

No one will be turned away for lack of funds, as space allows. For more information, please email Registration@spiritrock.org.
