Thanksgiving Insight Meditation Retreat: A Journey into Presence, Peace and Gratitude
Join us at this special time of year to reflect on the deeper truths that support our lives, personally and collectively. Thanksgiving retreat at Spirit Rock is a special opportunity to spend the holiday in the company of a like-minded community, surrounded by the peace and silence of the land. We will spend our days in noble silence with the sitting and walking practices of Calming and Insight Meditation. Supported in this sacred container, we will explore how the teachings of the Buddha point us to directly touch and understand our experience, opening us to compassion and wisdom.
