Upcoming Residential Retreats with Openings

Supported by the ongoing generosity of our sangha, we have begun construction on our lower campus for a permanent Community Meditation Hall and support buildings.  Our upper campus, where your residential retreat occurs, is not part of the construction. Please refer to the Construction Map below for location of the construction relative to the Retreat Hall.

While some ambient machinery sound may travel, it will not be continuous or nearby.  Construction will take place during business work hours (Monday – Friday, 7:00am–4:00pm and occasional Saturdays) and Spirit Rock will be open throughout construction.  We look forward to supporting your practice.

Periodically attending a meditation retreat is the best way to deepen and renew your practice. Most Spirit Rock retreats are held in our upper Retreat Hall unless otherwise indicated. The following retreats are open for registration and still have limited spaces available.
