Dear Spirit Rock Community,

Here is what’s going on in construction at SR this week:

  • Roof framing at the Temple Octagon
  • Tenant Improvements (interior walls, etc.) to begin at the Admin Building
  • Exterior and interior paint at the Village

Here is a shot of the two colors selected for the Residential Staff and Visiting Teacher Village. The window frames will be a darker tone.


Kudos to  Jen Petke, Project Manager, for facilitating a diverse group of stakeholders (Teachers, Staff, and a professional colorist) to come to a consensus decision on this important aspect of the Village. Good work Jen! (Pictured is the south-facing end of the Staff housing units)

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.
