"When one thought ends, right before the next thought begins,
there is a tiny gap called 'now.' Over time we learn to expand that gap."

– Spring Washam


We use the word "daylongs" as shorthand for our daylong programs and to distinguish them from our retreats, which extend over several days. Our daylongs provide a foundation for exploring the Dharma and establishing a steady meditation practice. We offer a wide range of daylongs taught by Spirit Rock teachers, as well as visiting teachers, including: beginning classes that introduce mindfulness practices and fundamental teachings; "applied mindfulness" classes that focus on particular life issues; classes that blend mindfulness with other traditions and practices such as yoga; advanced classes that dive deep into the suttas; and classes that address specific communities, such as families, elders, LBGT*QI and people of color.
