Family Practice Class: Opening the Heart through the Buddha's Teachings

with Baruch Golden, Eve Decker, Michele Ku and Shahara Godfrey

For Children Ages 0-13 and Family / Caregivers

Sunday, Feb 10th 2019

East Bay Meditation Center

We invite you to come and help create the diverse family sangha at EBMC. We welcome families with babies, toddlers, and children up to age 13. Children under 5 will need to have a parent/caregiver stay with them.

This class features training on “Family Tea Time” and how mindful practices can bind the family together. We will also explore how meditation and meditative movement can contribute to successful family life. Parents/caregivers and young people will meet together and separately during the class. We are committed to creating a diverse family sangha. No prior experience is necessary.

Please bring a snack (without nuts) to share. Please note, each family only needs one registration. Thank You!



EBMC TEACHERS ARE NOT PAID BY THE CENTER . You will have the opportunity to 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.
