Retreat Description:

Spirit Rock warmly welcomes all self-identified Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) practitioners who are nourished by Buddhist teachings of Lovingkindness and Compassion. These practices help us relate to ourselves and the world from a place of love, clarity and empowerment.

Lovingkindness supports our heart’s natural capacity to respond with love, warmth and tenderness. Over time, we develop a sense of interconnectedness with all creation.

Compassion practice gently turns us towards the suffering that comes from living in an unfriendly world. It helps us meet our inner critic and the world with clear-seeing and kindness.

This retreat will include silent sitting, walking periods, Dharma talks, and group discussions.

You are welcome! We are delighted to offer a $0-based sliding scale for this retreat. For more information, please email Registration@spiritrock.org. Deep bows of gratitude to the Kataly Foundation for supporting this retreat.
