Retreat Description:
On the weekend of May 17-19, a small group of Spirit Rock supporters will gather for an intimate three-day retreat with Spirit Rock Founder Jack Kornfield. Together, we will develop the heart quality of love, dwelling in kind awareness as we practice metta and cultivate our natural capacity for care and connection, towards ourselves and all other beings. This base of goodwill–combined with compassion, sympathetic joy and equanimity–can transform our lives.

Attendance for this retreat will be limited, and proceeds from this unique event supports scholarships and all we do here at Spirit Rock. The rate for this benefit weekend is $5,000; $4,500 of this is a tax-deductible charitable contribution to Spirit Rock, supporting everything we do here.

This intimate three-day weekend will include:
· Small group connection with Jack and other Spirit Rock teachers
· Guaranteed single rooms
· Gourmet meals planned exclusively for this group
· Daily movement sessions
