Continuing Education (CE) Credit

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

Continuing Education events are co-sponsored by Spirit Rock, the Spiritual Competency Resource Center, and the Institute of Noetic Sciences.  Most events offering CE credit are applicable to psychologists and persons holding a California MFT, LCSW, LEP, LPCC or Nursing license, 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 license applicability.

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.  Courses offering CE credit for psychologists will be taught at a level appropriate for post-graduate training of doctoral-level psychologists.  Spiritual Competency Resource Center maintains responsibility for these programs and their content.  For complete information visit www.spiritualcompetency.com or contact David Lukoff, Ph.D. at (707) 763-3576.

The Institute of Noetic Sciences is a provider approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing, BRN Provider Number CEP10318. For more information please contact jmathews@noetic.org.

The number of available CE credits 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.

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

  • In order to qualify for CE credit, you must arrive on time & sign-in at the CE table by the start of the event, stay for the duration of the event, and sign out at the end of the event.
  • Partial credit for partial attendance is not an option. You cannot arrive late or leave early and be given "partial credit" for the hours that you were here.

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.  Full attendance is required to be eligible for credit and to receive a certificate of attendance.

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


Cancellation Policy:

Non-residential events: Spirit Rock does not offer refunds for non-residential programs.  If you are unable to attend an event or fulfill the attendance requirements for CE credit, you may offer your CE credit fee as a donation to Spirit Rock, or you may request a credit toward a future non-residential event.  If you would like a credit, you must cancel by 4:00pm at least two business days prior to the event.  For more information, please see our Cancellation Policy for Non-Residential Programs.

Residential retreats: Refunds are available for residential retreat CE fees. If you would like a refund for your CE fee, you must cancel by 4:00pm 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 cancellation fee. If you cancel beyond the deadline stated above, you will not receive a refund. Please contact the Retreat Registrar at: retreats(at)spiritrock.org.

Spirit Rock Cancelled Events: Rarely has it happened that Spirit Rock has needed to cancel an event, but in the unlikely occasion that we do need to cancel, all registered participants will be notified by phone and email, and the cancellation notice will be posted on our website. Refunds will be issued within 7-10 business days.

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