Retreat Description:
Take a few days to open up space in your body, your mind, your heart, and your busy life. Unplug your devices, unwind your nervous system, nourish your spirit, and realign yourself with your heart’s deepest values and intentions. This silent retreat offers a seamless flow of meditation in stillness and in motion. Each day includes gentle guided yoga; seated, walking, standing, and lying down meditation instruction and practice; and dharma reflections and discussion. You’ll go home with powerful, practical tools for staying grounded and spacious in your daily life, while responding with wisdom and compassion to the suffering in the world and the urgent needs of our times.

Please note that this retreat will begin at 9:30am on opening day and include lunch; and will end at 3:00pm on closing day and also include lunch.

Financial assistance is available for all Spirit Rock residential retreats. Our scholarship rate is $40/night and available for all those with financial hardship with special funds allocated to People of Color (POC), folks with serious medical conditions, and young adults (age 18-26). Scholarship funding is offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Scholarships are budgeted per retreat and because they are in high demand, can run out quickly. We encourage you to register for a retreat as close as possible to the registration opening date (lotteries are an exception).
