Retreat Description:
In this three-night retreat, the emphasis will be on cultivating a relaxed awareness, opening the heart, and bringing a peaceful acceptance to our experience. The retreat will include dharma talks, instructions, and guided meditations to support the development of mindfulness, loving kindness, and compassion. The retreat will focus on offering practical tools to imbue the whole of our lives with wisdom and compassion. This retreat is open to beginners and experienced practitioners.

Financial assistance is available for all Spirit Rock residential retreats. Our scholarship rate is $40/night and available for all those with financial hardship with special funds allocated to People of Color (POC), folks with serious medical conditions, and young adults (age 18-26). Scholarship funding is offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Scholarships are budgeted per retreat and because they are in high demand, can run out quickly. We encourage you to register for a retreat as close as possible to the registration opening date (lotteries are an exception).
