Wisdom and love, cultivated on the spiritual path, are sometimes referred to as the two wings of a bird. Both are needed. Both can be developed over time and with practice.

In this silent retreat we will explore complementary practices that cultivate both “wings” of wisdom and love. We’ll spend each day practicing mindfulness, developing sustained awareness of our moment-to-moment experience. Once our minds settle, we can start to see more clearly into ourselves which helps us access our own inner wisdom. Simultaneously, throughout this retreat we will learn specific practices that deliberately cultivate the warmth of kindness and compassion for ourselves and the world. As these two “wings” mature, we see more clearly, love more fully, and so much goodness unfolds.

Spirit Rock extends a special invitation to young adults (age 18-26) who wish to attend this retreat at a rate of $35 per night, on a first come, first serve basis. A limited number of special rates are available, please apply early.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To find peace and renewal while going through a huge change in my life. Empty nest and the end of a 27 year marriage all at once. Susan

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
