Whether you are at the beginning of your exploration or deeply engaged in study and cultivation, Spirit Rock is here to support you on your path. All of our programs are rooted in Insight Meditation, mindfulness, and the teachings of the Buddha, dedicated to well-being and freedom from suffering for all.

Our weekly and monthly online meditation groups, from the popular Monday Night and Wednesday Morning gatherings to groups for self-identified BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, women, and those in recovery are a great place to start getting to know our teachers and community.

Online and on-land retreats, class series, and self-paced courses take you deeper into meditation practice and the liberating power of the Dharma. And when you’re ready to dive into sustained practice and study, our Dharma Training Programs address the full range of Buddhist practice, from bringing the Dharma into everyday life to the deepest teachings on liberation and compassion.

When we reflect on the elemental nature of the body in the first foundation of mindfulness, we’re seeing the interconnected nature of our experience. Our mind and ego functions through constriction, a narrowing of attention to this mind-body. We create the sense of self we wrap our lives around, and believe ourselves to be independent, fixed, and separate. Taking a walk, we have the experience “I am taking a walk through the park,” as if wherever we are is separate from our body. But we are the earth’s moving surface, looking at itself, tied by gravity. And we literally—not just metaphorically—come from the earth.
