This is a silent retreat designed especially for those relatively new to the practices of Insight Meditation (vipassana). The retreat includes systematic instructions in vipassana meditation - both sitting and walking - as well as loving-kindness practice, meetings with teachers, and evening talks highlighting the central teachings of the Buddha and their practical application to our lives.
Spirit Rock extends a special invitation to young adults (age 18-26) who wish to attend this retreat at a rate of $25 per night, on a first come, first serve basis. A limited number of special rates are available, please apply early.
