Prerequisite: Young adults age 18-32 years.

Come practice silent mindfulness and insight meditation for a week within a group of your peers. Give yourself a break from constant over-stimulation and external demands to create a time for greater inner calm, spaciousness and presence. We will explore radical self awareness and deeper embodiment through the ancient practices of silent sitting and walking meditations with periods of Qi Gong. Over the course of the week we will extend these practices until the entire day is one of steady awareness. On the last day of the retreat we practice coming in and out of silence to learn about conscious connection with the community around us. This is a fully silent retreat and we will ask you to turn off and put away all electronic devices.

Spirit Rock extends a special invitation to young adults (age 18-26) who wish to attend this retreat at a rate of $35 per night, on a first come, first serve basis. A limited number of special rates are available, please apply early.
