Open to Everyone

In this silent mindfulness meditation retreat we explore the innate quality of awareness as the foundation for cultivating clarity, understanding and insight into human experience. We will investigate how through mindfulness practice we can develop insight into the causes of stress and the causes of genuine happiness. We will examine what it means to abide with kindness and awareness in the midst of any experience, whether in meditation or in life, so we can live with a genuine non-reactive freedom wherever we are.

As well as sitting and walking insight meditation practice, we will emphasize integrating loving kindness and compassion into all moments of the retreat. This allows a kind embrace of ourselves and connects us intimately with each other and the world. In this retreat there will be periods of meditation, dharma talks, and opportunity for questions and discussion and is suitable for experienced and newer students to meditation.

Scholarship offerings: In returning to the land, we will also be returning to our pre-pandemic scholarship options and policies. All scholarship rates require a minimum fee ($50/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 in March 2022: As of March 27th, with this retreat, we will return to double occupancy rooms. Most of our rooms are single occupancy (only 16 of 80 rooms are double occupancy). We will also return to offering a “guaranteed single room” rate and they will be limited. This rate guarantees you a single room while helping to support scholarships and all we do here at Spirit Rock. Single rooms are not exclusive to the top end of the sliding scale; everyone has a chance of being assigned a single room.
