Retreat Description:
This retreat focuses on the embodiment of insight that reveals a blessed sacredness within all life.

Through training attention, wise discernment, and investigation, the Amata Dharma – undying Dharma – is intuitively known as the core matrix within which all emerges and dissolves. Such knowing transforms our world enabling and strengthening an inner sense of freedom and confidence.

The retreat is supported by Pali chanting, mantra practice, Kuan Yin devotions, including a bowing practice, and the Great Compassion Ceremony focused around the cultivation of the Bodhisattva Heart. It also will have daily sessions of qigong.

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).
