NEW PROCEDURE---Please Read:
Due to the overwhelming popularity of our month-long retreats and to create greater ease for the Registrars, we have had to revise our notification process. Your application will be date stamped in the order of receipt and you will receive an acknowledgement email. All acceptance notifications, including scholarship recipients (YA, POC, Mudita and Karuna), will go out on September 30, 2014. In addition, please refrain from single room inquiries until after notifications. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Pre-requisite: Completion of 2 previous silent 7-day Vipassana retreats led by Spirit Rock or IMS teachers, or the equivalent. You will need to provide the teachers’ names, dates, location and length of the retreats when applying, along with a questionnaire.

An extended period of retreat offers the rare opportunity for sustained and dedicated practice. This retreat emphasizes quieting the mind, opening the heart, and developing profound clarity and depth of insight practice. Instruction will follow the traditional four foundations of mindfulness, combined with training in lovingkindness and compassion, through a daily schedule of silent sitting, walking, dharma talks and interviews.

Note: For the month long retreats only, Spirit Rock is offering the young adult rate to YAs ages 18 - 32 years. This is a rate of $25 per night. A limited number of special rates are available, please apply early.

CONSTRUCTION UPDATE
Supported by the ongoing generosity of our sangha, we have begun construction on our lower campus for a permanent Community Hall and support buildings. Our upper campus, where your residential retreat occurs, is not part of the construction. Please refer to the Construction Map for the location of construction relative to the Retreat Hall.

While some ambient machinery sound may travel, it will not be continuous or nearby. Construction will take place during business work hours (Monday – Friday, 7:00am - 4:00pm) and on some Saturdays. We look forward to supporting your practice here at Spirit Rock.

Online Bulletin Board for Ride Sharing


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. For more information, see Retreat FAQ.
