RETREAT TO BE HELD ON THE LAND!
When you are as full as the full moon
Make the dark night shine
—Weingast, First Free Women
Open to: Self-identified women
We are in a time of increasing pressure, individually and collectively. The four noble truths, foundational Buddhist Teachings, point to pressure as a part of life, and our relationship to that pressure the choice point where our freedom lies. This retreat is designed to give you direct experience of freedom in context of deep rest and liberating teachings.
Our shared practices will include sitting meditation, contemplative embodied movement, outdoor practice, lovingkindness, storytelling, mandala drawing and Dharma talks.
Whatever your age, ethnicity, race, body type, or sexual orientation we invite you to join this diverse circle of women to co-create a journey of deep rest, renewal and liberating wisdom. We welcome trans and non-conforming women.
Our aspiration as teachers is that each woman will experience the next critical insight on her path. To support the integration of this retreat we will offer the opportunity to create self-organized circles of practice following the retreat.
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. Many 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. 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.
