 Monday Night Class

The Monday Night class with Jack Kornfield and others is now in its 29th year. Monday night serves as an introduction to the practices of awareness and compassion that are the heart of our community. This gathering also offers support and ongoing teachings to committed students. Class is from 7:15 - 9:15 pm. Dinner, when offered, begins at 6 pm.

The Monday Night Children's Class is back--6 Mondays, June 30th to August 4th.  All children who've completed kindergarten through 5th grade are welcome.  Class starts at 7:15 and ends promptly at 9:15.  $5 per child, $8 per family plus a donation for the teachers.  If you have questions, please feel free to call Dawn Scott, the Family Program Coordinator, at (415) 488-4136 x227.  

Class fees and parking fees are waived for volunteers, especially for those who can help clean after each week's class from 9:15-9:45. Tasks include vacuuming, taking out the trash/recycling/compost, putting chairs away, straightening the hall, etc.  Please check in with Sean Fargo, seanf@SpirtRock.org, on the night of the event to discuss.

*REQUEST: When dinner is not served, please do not pass the large wooden gate (by the dining hall) which demarcates the space where our silent residential retreats occur. We thank you for protecting the sacredness of these quiet areas where overnight yogi's practice with such diligence and care. 

Please Carpool!

Spirit Rock asks for a $10 "non-carpool" fee from cars with less than 3 people.

Two good places to meet:

  • BON AIR CENTER, Greenbrae: On the side of this lot that runs along Sir Francis Drake Blvd., there are 16 hour parking spots that you can park in for class. Look for white signs with green letters. If you are coming from the 101 or East Bay, please try to carpool here, so there is room at the Fairfax lot.

  • FAIRFAX:: Please meet other carpoolers in Fairfax at the OLD Good Earth location (click for map), at the intersection of Sir Francis Drake and Claus Drive, and the adjacent lot.
