"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

Monday Night Dharma Talk & Meditation Group

This group meets every Monday night from 7:15 – 9:15pm in the Community Meditation Center. The sit is also available through our livestream at: Spirit Rock Live: Monday Nights with Jack Kornfield & Friends. The Monday Night Meditation Group is now in its 33rd year and serves as an introduction to the practices of awareness and compassion that are the heart of our teachings. The sit is appropriate for beginning and experienced students alike. Are you new to Spirit Rock? Join us for our weekly Community Welcome Program at no charge!

*Ridesharing is required on noted evenings: Cars with less than 3 people will be asked to pay a $10 non-carpooling fee. Visit our Monday Night ridesharing bulletin board Ridesharing Monday Night to look for or offer a ride. On nights when our founding teacher, Jack Kornfield, speaks the Community Meditation Center typically fills up and reaches capacity and so anyone that arrives after this point will be able to participate by viewing the livestream in our West and East Halls. 

Please do not pass the wooden gate and prayer wheel or enter into the residential retreat area. Thank you for respecting the privacy of the retreat container. Program fees and parking fees are waived for volunteers. We especially need people who can help clean after each week's class from 9:15-9:45pm. Tasks include dust-mopping the floor, taking out the trash/recycling/compost, putting chairs away, straightening the hall, etc. To volunteer simply arrive 45 minutes early or let our Event Coordinator know that you can stay 30 minutes after class to help with clean up. Please contact us at: for questions about volunteering.
