Weekly & Monthly Classes
Weekly classes are a great introduction to Spirit Rock teachings. Classes are suitable for both beginners as well as more advanced practitioners. Drop-ins are welcome at all classes below. Pre-registration is not available. Cost $8-$10, plus a donation to the teacher(s). No one turned away for lack of funds. If you are interested in volunteering to support a class, contact Volunteering@spiritrock.org.
Notice about Changes to Fee Structure, May 1, 2016
You may notice we've changed our fee structure as of May 1, 2016: Our sliding scale fees and your donations to Spirit Rock now guarantee support for our Community Meditation Center (CMC) teachers, so we will no longer ask for teacher dana at programs and events in our CMC. For further information about these changes, please click here to read our Frequently Asked Questions.

Dharma & Recovery
2nd Friday of each month, 7:30 - 9:30 pm with Kevin Griffin or other teachers
This group explores the intersection of recovery with Buddhist Teachings and practices. We welcome all people who identify with any of the full range of addictions, from substances, to behaviors, to habitual thought and emotional patterns. This is not a 12 Step group, but we look to ways that members of that community can support each other on the path of recovery. Each gathering begins with a period of guided meditation and new meditators are welcome. There is time for discussion about meditation practice and each month a recovery/dharma theme will be discussed.
