This is a traditional Insight meditation (Vipassana) retreat format with sitting and walking in silence, and time for individual interviews. Teachers give daily dharma talks and systematic meditation instructions. We will celebrate New Year's Eve with a late evening sitting and simple ceremony.
It is our wish to support the practice needs of meditators in early adulthood. To this end, Spirit Rock extends a special invitation to young adults (age 18-26) who wish to attend this retreat at a special rate of $25 per night, on a first-come, first-served basis. A limited number of special rates are available.

Also remember that the cost above is priced as a sliding scale. Please pay at the highest level of the sliding scale that you can afford. This allows others who need to pay less the opportunity to attend. Fee is for room and board. Teaching and staffing of the retreats is by donation at the end of the retreat.
