A 5-week beginning class series is offered in the evenings twice a year at Spirit Rock, usually in September and again in February. All of our weekly classes are open to beginners. Most of our daylong retreats include meditation instructions.Spirit Rock teachers also offer beginning classes at their local sitting groups. Please check either their websites or call for details about their sitting groups. For a listing of sitting groups led by Spirit Rock teachers in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, click here.
