In this retreat we’ll focus on the foundations of mindfulness practice as it has been transmitted from the time of the Buddha. We’ll explore mindfulness as a path of purification, cultivating awareness of breath, body, and other experiences with clear recognition, noticing and understanding how we are relating to what’s being experienced. Practicing in this way, we see clearly, resolve difficulties in the heart, and can glimpse the nature of mind itself.

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 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.
