In this retreat we will quiet our minds and open our hearts through the practices of mindfulness, insight and loving-kindness meditations. Together we will come to see that freedom is possible through meeting ourselves, our relationships and our world more fully with deepening wisdom, compassion and acceptance. This retreat will include silent and guided meditations, periods of sitting and walking meditation, mindful movement, practice meetings with the teachers, dharma talks and a chance to build community.

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.
