4/23/2015 Construction Update

Dear Spirit Rock Community,

Here’s what’s going on at SR:

  • Media (special sand and soil) being placed in the rain gardens and vegitated swales
  • Sattalite lot (aka horseshoe lot) final grading
  • Septic work being done to hook up the Upper Retreat Center to the new sewer system
  • Temple roof framing will continue
  • Village flatwork (concrete and asphalt walkways and drives) will begin
  • Village paint will continue
  • Village Commons finish work continues
  • Admin tennant improvements continue

CMH really taking shape. Overhang rafters are being installed. The upright rectangles on the roof form the frame of the dormer windows. Looking closely you can just make out the beginnings of the framing for the cupola.

A New Community Meditation Hall
to Support Our Sangha

Located in a serene open grassland hillside setting, with an outdoor terrace and arrival space, the new Community Meditation Hall will create an environment conducive to practice and will form a respectful setting for the precious teachings we offer.

If you’ve attended classes in the Community Hall or volunteered in our administrative offices, you’ll know that the conditions here are not sustainable: dilapidated trailers, challenging lay-out, difficult logistics. This next building phase will be the second of four phases that will complete the approved 1988 build-out of the Spirit Rock campus. Designed by local notable green architectural firm Hart Howerton, our permanent new buildings with green design functions will improve all aspects of Spirit Rock’s programs and operations.
