Residential Retreats


In response to current conditions, Spirit Rock’s Dharma programs are now offered exclusively online. We have heard from our online practitioners how comforting, inspiring, and helpful it can be to practice together virtually–the felt sense of the dharma and the sangha shine through. Practicing deeply in our living spaces allows unique opportunities for integrating the teachings in the midst of our lives.

The need for the Dharma is stronger than ever. These are difficult times for non-profits, and Spirit Rock is no exception. When you register to join us online, we encourage you to pay at the highest level you are able to, in support of Spirit Rock, our incredible staff, and dedicated sangha.

We are so grateful for the teachings and for all of you during these complex times. We are all in this together.

May all beings be safe.
