Is your heart brimming over around the crisis of police violence? Do you want to plug in to the movement to defend Black lives alongside fellow dharma practitioners? Come join the Buddhist Peace Fellowship for a daylong training offering a variety of ways and roles to participate in an upcoming action to help demilitarize the police. From making art, to preparing meals for activists, to being out in the streets together, you can find a role at a level of risk that's right for you. People of color are at the forefront of this struggle, and together we all heal and bring peace through Wise Action toward ending police murder.

Dawn Haney and Katie Loncke, Co-Directors, Buddhist Peace Fellowship
Dawn Haney brings Buddhist-informed activism to movements from climate justice to white anti-racist organizing. She has been teaching and training for close to 20 years, on feminism, anti-racism, violence prevention, and more. A dharma student for the past 12 years in the Theravada tradition, she is currently in Spirit Rock’s Community Dharma Leaders training program.
Perhaps you, like Katie Loncke, seek a practice that rigorously combines wisdom, political education, revolutionary social justice, spiritual awakening, and creative FUN. Katie brings a background in Black feminist anti-capitalist organizing, Venn-diagrammed with 8 years of deep practice in the Theravada / Insight / Vipassana Buddhist tradition. Let's build.

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.
