Please Note: This retreat is offered online only. We invite you to try this creative form of practice as we take care of one another and respond skillfully to COVID-19.

Throughout history, people have sought the heights of human potential—to become as wise, strong, happy, and loving as a person can be. Now, thanks to recent science, we’re finding how these remarkable ways of being are based on equally remarkable changes in our own nervous system. In this experiential workshop, we will explore how to strengthen the neural circuitry of deep contentment, lasting love, and profound inner peace.

No background in brain science or meditation is needed. In addition to the personal value of these practices, this material has practical implications and benefits for therapists and others in the helping professions.

All are welcome! No one will be turned away for lack of funds as space allows. For more information, please email Registration@spiritrock.org.
