Description

THE ULTIMATE REFUGE: one-day retreat for people of color

Saturday, August 26th, 2017

10:00 am – 4:00 pm

East Bay Meditation Center 285 17th Street, Oakland, CA

In the Buddhist tradition, we take refuge in the Three Jewels: The Buddha, The Dharma and The Sangha. In the Great Perfection Teachings of the Nyingma Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, we add the refuge of the Great Mother - The Perfection of Sublime Knowing. This ultimate refuge has also been called “The Mother of All Buddhas” because its dawning in the mind leads to the freedom of a Buddha. In this daylong, we will explore the power of this inner refuge and its potential for transforming our lives.

H. Margarita Loinaz, MD has been a Buddhist practitioner since 1977 in the Tibetan and Theravada traditions. Her current teaching integrates social and environmental awareness with the Great Perfection/Dzogchen Teachings. She is a graduate of the first Community Dharma Leader’s Program at Spirit Rock Meditation Center where she also helped to establish the Diversity Program and taught at the first People of Color retreat in 1999. As a physician, she served Latinos, Day Laborers and the Homeless population in San Francisco for many years and mentored medical students through UCSF. She is originally from the Dominican Republic.

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. If you would like to explore any EBMC volunteer positions, please send an email expressing your interest to admin@eastbaymeditation.org

EBMC TEACHERS ARE NOT PAID BY THE CENTER and and you can offer a voluntary financial gift to them at the class. In order to protect the health of community members with environmental illness, please do not wear fragranced products (including natural fragrances) or clothes laundered in fragranced products to EBMC.
