RETREAT TO BE HELD ON THE LAND!
Prerequisite: Completion of one (or more) 7-day/6-night (or longer) silent, residential or online Insight meditation retreat. If you are new to Nine Bodies, you are also encouraged (but not required) to complete a Nine Bodies Intro series before coming on the retreat.
The Nine Bodies teaching presents a unified map of the various capacities of consciousness, which are often only partially recognized (or completely unrecognized) even among long-term practitioners. This retreat offers a method for practicing Insight meditation in which consciousness itself becomes the object of meditation.
We will start with establishing mindfulness through the practice of arriving, and then turn toward ever more subtle levels of consciousness. The practice utilizes the felt sense as a means for freeing the mind of over-conceptualization and supporting the arising of liberating insights.
We respectfully acknowledge that this method is an integration of the Nine Bodies teachings from Himalayan yoga master Premvarni Balyogi and Thai Forest Insight teachings.
The retreat will include detailed guided meditations, teaching sessions, and cohort (small group) practice meetings. It is not recommended for practitioners experiencing acute grief or other strong mental challenges.
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 with our “Living with Awareness” retreat on March 27, 2022, 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 these will be limited (16). This rate guarantees 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.
*Subject to change depending upon COVID-19 situation.
