A daylong on Metta practice with Spring Washam
It’s been my experience that when we truly love and honor ourselves many of life’s most difficult questions get answered. Self-hatred, inner aggression, and self -criticism are rooted in a mind that is confused and suffering. The “Metta” practice is a powerful antidote and medicine that transforms hatred into love. In this daylong we will focus on loving kindness, compassion, and forgiveness practices directed towards ourselves. This day will include meditation, group work, and talks on the theme of the day.
Spring Washam is a meditation and dharma teacher based in Oakland, California. She was trained by Jack Kornfield and now leads Vipassana and Metta retreats throughout the country. Spring is one of the founders of the East Bay Meditation Center in Oakland where she teaches daylong retreats and weekly classes. She is also a member of the Spirit Rock Teachers Council. Spring is considered a pioneer in bringing mindfulness-based healing practices to inner city communities. In addition, she has extensive training in indigenous healing practices and works with students individually from around the world. www.springwasham.com
The East Bay Meditation Center continues the Buddhist tradition of depending on a Generosity-based "All-Dana" model to fund our Center. This means that EBMC does not have specific fees for events, but rather relies on the generosity of individuals to keep the Center operating.
We believe that our Generosity-based model is an essential component of attaining spiritual freedom, and allows the greatest accessibility to the Dharma for the greatest number of people.
All classes at the Center come with a financial cost. When registering, please consider donating to support the center. There is also an opportunity to give Dana at the event. 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 email@example.com
EBMC TEACHERS ARE NOT PAID BY THE CENTER. They offer their teaching on a Dana basis and you can offer Dana to them at the class.
