Living in Northern CA for the last 20 + years I have been blessed to often visit Spirit Rock Meditation Center. Spirit Rock is dedicated the practice of mindful awareness and provides silent meditation retreats, as well as classes, trainings, and Dharma study opportunities for both beginners and experienced students.
One of my favorite offerings is the Monday Night Dharma Talks. I make the trip to Woodacre, CA, at least a few times a year to listen to Jack Kornfield (and friends) give these talks. It is amazing to mediate with a large group. If you are traveling to northern CA, Spirit Rock is about a half hour from San Francisco and a must-see for mindful visitors. This Monday, June 3rd, is a special Monday Night, that will focus on the Dharma of Climate Change.
These days living in Truckee, it is not easy for me to drive to Spirit Rock, but (hooray!) some of the Monday night Dharma Talks can now be accessed on the web or via Livestream (Sliding Scale form $0 to $108). Here is the link if you are interested.
Tonight’s Dharma Talk with Jack Kornfield runs from 7:15pm to 9:15pm(PST).
