Monday Night Class
The Monday Night class with Jack Kornfield and others is now in its 28th 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.
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 on the night of the event to discuss.
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.

*Vegetarian buffet dinner, when offered, begins at 6 pm and ends at 6:45 pm. Cost $10-$15/adult, and $4-$5/child, sliding scale. While our intention is to feed everyone who wishes to enjoy our Monday Night Dinners, we occasionally run out of food. We suggest arriving at 6 pm for dinner. Note: Wheat-free alternatives are offered when the main entree contains wheat.
In consideration of all participants, please do not wear scented personal care products to Spirit Rock (including "natural" products, and essential oils).

During the winter months it is very dark in the countryside of west Marin. Please bring a flashlight to help you be seen and for you to see better in our parking lot.
