Jack Kornfield began this weekly practice gathering in 1986 to introduce the practices of awareness and compassion that are the heart of the Buddha’s teachings. The evening has a period of meditation in stillness and a Dharma talk, sometimes with Q&A. In addition to Jack, you’ll hear inspiring Spirit Rock teachers presenting the ancient teachings of the Dharma in a way that’s relevant, wise, and helpful in our complex world.
