Sliding Scale: $480-$3,600, PLUS a donation to the teacher(s). Code 240R21.
Please Note: This retreat is offered online only. We invite you to try this creative form of practice as we take care of one another and respond skillfully to COVID-19.
Prerequisite: Before registering you must have already completed one 5-day silent residential retreat to qualify for this retreat.
These retreats should have been silent meditation retreats led by Spirit Rock, IMS, or IRC teachers, or other recognized Insight Meditation teachers. The retreats should have had a similar format to this retreat, with instructions, practices and talks focused on Insight Meditation.
Instead of the annual month-long, the March teaching team will lead a 12-day online retreat. We will devote ourselves to the practice of Vipassana utilizing stillness and movement meditation, including 24/7 practice.
This extended retreat offers a rare opportunity for sustained and dedicated practice. Emphasis will be on quieting the mind, opening the heart and developing profound clarity and depth of insight practice. Instructions will follow the traditional four foundations of mindfulness, combined with training in lovingkindness and compassion, through a daily schedule of silent stillness and movement meditation, Dharma talks, and practice meetings with teachers.
No one will be turned away for lack of funds, as space allows. For more information, please email Registration@spiritrock.org.
