Spirit Rock Meditation Center, in collaboration with the Metta Institute, is excited to announce a new one-year training program focused on creating community-based systems of support for people facing the realities of aging, illness and dying. The training includes three 7-day residential retreats, teleconferences, faculty mentoring, home study and more. This program is designed to blend the classical wisdom teachings of the Buddha on aging, sickness and death with contemporary approaches in an effort to bring mindful and compassionate service to our local communities.
