Spirit Rock C.D.L. Program

Spirit Rock Meditation Center, in Woodacre, CA, offers an exceptional spiritual guidance course known as the Community Dharma Leadership program. It is 2 years in duration, over the course of which I will travel to Woodacre and New York to attend week-long in-person sessions every 4 months. I had to be nominated and accepted after applying, amongst hundreds of others; and now that I am humbly honored with acceptance, less than 1/2 of the tuition payments remain. As of September 1, 2019, over half of the cost was covered by a combination of Spirit Rock's generous scholarship award and my own funds. Approximately 5k in expenses remains, including travel to the respective locations of each week-long training session. I have also completed prerequisites for this program and obtained a mentor who will assist and guide me in homework assignments which will be required to be completed during the months in-between each week-long in-person session. Much gratitude and maitri to my mentor and teacher Carol Cook, for the nomination and the ongoing encouragement and supportive presence. Thank you, teacher, for the ongoing 25+ years' example of authentically compassionate showing up and being with. Thank you Prescott Insight Meditation sangha-mates for getting me off to a rolling start in this campaign. As of the writing of this post, I have already received $200.00 towards the goal! BUDDHA. DHARMA. SANGHA!!!
