Retreat Description:
The emphasis during this retreat will be on the continuity of awareness in all activities, which stabilizes and balances the mind. Relaxed acceptance of our moment-to-moment experience becomes the platform for investigation and wisdom. Particular attention will be paid to the attitudes in the mind that condition our understanding. This retreat is suitable for both beginners and experienced meditators. We welcome people from all life experiences, backgrounds and diverse communities.

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). Scholarships are budgeted per retreat and we receive a greater number of requests for funding than we have funds to offer.

The lottery opens on February 14, 2019 and closes at 5:00pm on Thursday, March 14, 2019. No preference is given to when you apply within this period even if you need scholarship funding. All applicants must apply online. Please contact the Registration Department (retreats@spiritrock.org) if you do not have access to a computer.
