A paid staff of about 64 full- and part-time employees run the day-to-day operations of Spirit Rock Meditation Center. Ongoing support from a large and enthusiastic group of volunteers is vital to the success of Spirit Rock.
A collective of teachers, trained extensively in Buddhist practice, develops the Spirit Rock’s teaching programs. A volunteer Board of Directors, comprised of teachers and sangha members, is the central decision-making body for Spirit Rock. The work of the Board is supported by a number of committees. The Board and all committees of Spirit Rock operate by a basic belief that the Dharma can be embraced and practiced by all.
