Continuing Education (CE) Credit

*NEW* CE credit now offered at some residential retreats.  See Residential Retreats offering Continuing Education (CE) Credit for complete listing.

Please note: the CE credit fee will increase to $10/credit starting January 1st, 2016.

Continuing Education courses are co-sponsored by Spirit Rock and the Spiritual Competency Resource Center.  Most events offering CE credit are applicable to psychologists and persons holding a California MFT, LCSW, LEP, LPCC or Nursing degree, and may be applicable for other licenses or for licenses held in another state.  It is the responsibility of the participant to determine if their board will accept the credits offered by Spirit Rock.  Please see the event description to determine course eligibility.

Spirit Rock is licensed to offer CE credit for events which meet the qualifications for continuing education as required by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences, provider #PCE1851. For more information call Spirit Rock Meditation Center at 415.488.0164 x 250.

The Spiritual Competency Resource Center is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. The Spiritual Competency Resource Center is a California Board of Registered Nursing Provider (CEP11909). For complete information visit www.spiritualcompetency.com or contact David Lukoff, PhD at (707) 763-3576.

The number of available CE credit units will vary, please see the event descriptions.

An administrative fee is charged for processing CE credit registration. You must sign-up and pay for CE credits before the event begins.  Spirit Rock accepts online advance payment for CE credit and we strongly recommend that you register and pay for CE credit when you register for the event. We cannot award credit after an event has ended to those who did not previously register and pay for CE credits and sign-in on the attendance roster.

There will be an additional $20 fee for certificates that need to be reissued.

Spirit Rock follows the guidelines set forth by the licensing bodies that authorize us to offer CE credit.

  • We do not offer partial credit. You cannot arrive late or leave early and be given "partial credit" for the hours that you were here.
  • In order to qualify for CE credit, you must arrive & sign in at the CE table within 15 minutes of the start of the event, and stay until the end of the event.

For non-residential events, checking in at registration does not get you signed in for CE credit. There is a separate table that you need go to and sign-in on the CE paperwork.  There is signage and if you do not see the table, or are not directed to it, please ask!

For residential events, you will need to sign-in at the beginning of the retreat, and initial your attendance at each required session. 

Credit is awarded for instructional time only.  It does not include silent sitting or walking meditation, meals, yoga, breaks, or work periods.

Cancelation Policy: 

Non-residential events: Credits are available for non-residential event CE fees.  If you are unable to attend an event, arrive on time, or need to leave early, thus preventing eligibility for CE credits, prior to the event, you may request a credit to be used towards another non-residential event.  If you need to cancel and would like a credit for a future event, you must cancel by 4:00 pm at least two (2) business days prior to the event (by Thursday at 4:00 pm for any weekend events). If you cancel beyond this deadline, you will not receive a credit for your event or CE credit fee. Credits are not automatically issued. Please contact our Events Registrar at (415) 488-0164 x266 or email EventsRegistrar@spiritrock.org to cancel your registration and receive a credit.  The credit must be used within one year of the date issued. Event & CE fees cannot be applied to residential retreats.  We are unable to process credits online. 

Residential retreats: Refunds are available for residential retreat CE fees.  If you would like a refund for your CE fee, you must cancel by 4:00 pm at least two (2) business days prior to the event. If you contact us at least two business days preceding the retreat, we will refund your CE fee minus a $50 cancelation fee. If you cancel beyond the deadline stated above, you will not receive a refund. Please contact your Retreat Registrar.

If you have any questions regarding CE credit, please contact our Continuing Education Coordinator - KatieM@spiritrock.org or call (415) 488-0164 x 250.
