Open to: Everyone

Taking refuge in silence, and within the container of the Spirit Rock land, we will practice stilling the mind and opening the heart. We will cultivate the beautiful heart qualities of mettā (lovingkindness), compassion, joy, and equanimity. The teachings will emphasize practical tools to carry the practice into daily life, supporting clarity, ease, and a sense of living in harmony with our heart’s deepest wishes. The retreat will include systematic instructions, guided meditations, sitting and walking periods, evening talks, and Qi Gong/Tai Chi practice.

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.
