"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

Spirit Rock Community Welcome

Are you interested in learning mindfulness meditation or curious about taking classes at Spirit Rock but not sure where to start? If so, we invite you to come to one of our Community Welcome programs. It's an opportunity to give meditation a try, learn more about mindfulness, and ask questions about our program offerings in an informal setting with other folks who are also just beginning their exploration of mindfulness meditation.

Our Community Welcome meets once a month from 6:15 – 6:30pm (welcome) 6:30 – 7:05pm (meditation instruction) before the Monday Night Dharma Talk & Meditation. The program includes basic meditation instruction, a short, guided sit, and a question-and-answer period. There's no charge to attend our Community Welcome. Participants receive a voucher to attend the Monday Night Dharma Talk & Meditation Group afterward at no charge. Beginning May 1, 2017, the Community Welcome will meet every Monday night.
