  • At Spirit Rock Meditation Center

    Wednesday Morning Drop-In class at Spirit Rock is for everyone! This class was started by Sylvia Boorstein nearly 30 years ago. About 15 years ago Donald Rothberg began teaching it as well, and now periodically Heidi teaches the class as well.
    The class includes sitting meditation, a dharma talk, and group discussion. It’s a lovely morning of community practice. 

    If you can't make it, you can listen to my talks anytime. Scroll down and enjoy!

  • Spring Practice Intensive

    Energize and deepen your practice with a small group of dedicated practitioners. Throughout the Intensive, we'll focus on meditation - why we practice, what brings us back, how we practice and what we're learning - giving particular attention to practices that support our resilience as we navigate our lives.

    This Insight Meditation intensive is designed for those with established meditation practices. Each two-hour session will include meditation, dharma exploration and time to talk with each other. It’s a special opportunity for those wishing to deepen their connection to sangha, our spiritual community of friends, and to the teachings of awareness, compassion and wisdom.

    This intensive is recommended for those with an established and regular meditation practice.

  • Integrating Change as a Path to Wholeness

    Everything changes, continually.
    Life is inherently challenging, for everyone.
    Actions have consequences, big and small.   

    All of us, no matter who we are, experience the pleasure and pain of success and failure, gain and loss, illness, aging, and death. When difficulty happens we tend to think something is wrong, we push it away we want it to end. When things are going well, we think this is how it's supposed to be, we hold on forgetting that it, too, will once again change.

    Join us as we take a deep dive into the Buddha's teachings on Impermanence, Suffering, and Interconnection supported by the healing promise of Intention, Ethics and Love. 

    Each session includes silent and guided meditation, a dharma talk, and group discussion. Everyone is welcome, both new and seasoned practitioners.

  • Pathways to Presence; Poetry, Meditation & Conversation

    Poems have a magical way of bringing us closer to our lives, giving us a new view, a deeper view, a little more understanding of what makes us tick. During these times of great change, connecting with others over a poem and in meditation offers a soothing balm for the mind, heart and body.

    Drawing on poems from a variety of poets, each two-hour session includes reading poems together, meditation, and exploring how the poems connect us to the wisdom of the Dharma.

    Everyone is welcome. No prior background in either meditation or poetry is needed. Just bring your curious mind and willing heart. The poems will be sent in advance of each session and there is no homework.
