The Health of the Mind
with Carol Cano
East Bay Meditation Center
285 17th Street, Oakland 
Sunday, January 27th 9:30AM - 12:30PM
Buddhist teachings are not a religion, they are a science of mind.
---The Dalai Lama
We will explore a genuine approach towards happiness and peace at a time in human history that is undeniably chaotic and leaning towards the brink of madness. What copings skills are helping us manage conflict, stress, fears and the nonstop pressure of society as a whole? The Buddha presented a map for “awakening inner freedom of the spirit and liberation of the heart from entanglements in unhealthy states”. We will cultivate practices recognizing and let- go of unhealthy states.
This half-daylong is open to all levels of practice especially new practitioners to the dharma. We will be exploring the dharma and mindfulness meditation as healthy tools for coping and moving more towards equanimity.

EBMC TEACHERS ARE NOT PAID BY THE CENTER. You are invited to offer a voluntary financial gift to them at the class. The East Bay Meditation Center operates using a generosity-based, gift economics model. This means we charge no set registration fees to attend our events and instead rely on the generous giving of our community. All classes at the Center do come with a financial cost. Class participants are offered an opportunity to make a voluntary gift to EBMC during the registration process or at an event itself. Please note that no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
