The cost for this one-day retreat is included as part of the class. However, if you are not taking the whole class, you may still attend this one-day retreat. People of all ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations, and gender identities are welcome.
Class Cost: Sliding Scale: $35-75. Please pay the highest amount you can afford so others may benefit from your generosity.

Nina Gold has been practicing Insight meditation since 2007. She is a graduate of the Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Training with Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach and is currently a student in Spirit Rock’s Community Dharma Leaders program. Nina is also a yoga teacher, teaching in the Iyengar method since 1998. She was born and raised in San Francisco and lives there now with her husband, daughter and dog.
She loves truth and opening to the whole of life as practice. Dharma practice has profoundly transformed her and she shares these teachings with gratitude and joy.
Louije Kim is a community mental health therapist and dharma practitioner in the SF Bay Area. They are a part of the current Spirit Rock Teacher Training cohort. Louije is most drawn to practice in the style of Burmese monastic Sayadaw U Tejaniya as promulgated by Western convert Buddhist teachers. They are deeply committed to the personal and collective liberation of local communities.
Since we want our classes to be accessible to as many sangha members as possible, we offer our classes on a sliding scale registration fee basis. For those unable to afford the low end of the sliding scale, some limited income and scholarship slots are available. Please call 415-727-6220 prior to the daylong if the registration fee is an obstacle to your participation.
