“The practice of metta, uncovering the force of love that can uproot fear, anger, and guilt, begins with befriending ourselves” - Sharon Salzberg
The Buddha did not separate lovingkindness (Metta) from the four foundation of the mindfulness (Satipatthana). In this daylong we will practice a foundation of mindfulness, silence, and deep listening that nourishes love and understanding through the practice of metta. These practices will open you to the heart of the matter in your life and cultivate a path of peace.
The teacher requests that you give yourself time to integrate back into a busy life by not booking too much after this retreat.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
EBMC TEACHERS ARE NOT PAID BY THE CENTER and and you can offer a voluntary financial gift to them at the class.
