Burst Open

— Matty Weingast, The First Free Women

An open secret of meditation is that prioritizing ease and well-being leads to a natural and joyful attention. This retreat will focus on deep rest for the first days, inviting the natural capacity of mindful attention to arise from within. We will focus on the Four Noble Truths through teachings and stories that lift up women from a diversity of lineages, in the spirit of individual and collective liberation.

This retreat is open to all who identify as women, as well as non-binary folks who feel nourished in spaces centering women. Our true intention is to welcome all of who you are.

The retreat will be held in silence except for teacher-led Q&A, small groups, or other practice meetings.

Scholarship offerings: In returning to the land, we returned to our pre-pandemic scholarship options and policies. All scholarship rates require a minimum fee ($55/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 March 27, 2022, we returned to double and single occupancy rooms. Many of our rooms are single occupancy (only 16 of 80 rooms are double occupancy). We have also returned to offering a “guaranteed single room” rate; these rates are limited (16). This rate guarantees a single room while helping to support scholarships and all we do here at Spirit Rock. The remaining single rooms are not exclusive to the top end of the sliding scale; however, they are initially prioritized for those with serious medical needs.

*Subject to change depending upon COVID-19 situation.
