Prerequisites: Age 14-20 years
A group of teens (ages 14-20) and Spirit Rock teen teachers will travel from Spirit Rock to Abhayagiri Monastery in Redwood Valley, Mendocino for a weekend of camping and practice with the monastic community. Teens participate in the monastic schedule, which includes periods of meditation and chanting, working and hiking on the land and teachings from the monastics. To maintain a lifestyle of simplicity while at the monastery, participants will take the Eight Precepts, which include not overindulging in sleep and not eating a full meal after noon.
