"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

Experience Spirit Rock

Come for two hours or two months

Spirit Rock hosts a year-round schedule of offerings to not only get started learning about meditation and Buddhism but to also dive deeper into silence and self practice. The offerings are provided in two main ways: 

Non- residential

These programs take place in our Community Meditation Center on the lower campus and are suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators. Non-residential retreats provide opportunities for people with families and other commitments to spend several days practicing at Spirit Rock and then return home at night to their families.  

  • Drop-ins 
  • Day retreats
  • Dharma and yoga programs
  • Non- residential (multi-day) retreats

Residential retreats

These silent retreats provide an immersive meditation experience. Retreats take place in our beautiful Upper Retreat Hall and practitioners stay in our campus housing and eat in our dining hall. We offer retreats lasting from three days to two months; most are 5-10 days long. 

For both non- residential and residential offerings please browse through our Calendar where you can find out specific information about each program and register.
