Meditation Training: Establishing a Meditation Practice in 4 Short Weeks

 with Rev. Liên Shutt

Wednesdays July 10, 17 & 24 and 31, 2019

East Bay Meditation Center 

285 17th Street, Oakland, CA 94612

Want to learn how to meditate? Or, have you tried at different times but just can’t quite figure how to make it work for you?

In this series, specific and easy-to-follow instructions will be given in three areas – body, heart/emotions and mind/mental states – to practice with one area per week. Then, in each class, you will have an opportunity to have your specific needs and questions addressed.

Think of this class as a four-week “training camp.” Come see how the two factors of practiced-guidance and cohort-support can help you to establish a sustainable practice in just four weeks!

EBMC TEACHERS ARE NOT PAID BY THE CENTER. You are invited to offer a voluntary financial gift to them at the class. 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

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.

East Bay Meditation Center strives to be as accessible as possible.  For the safety of our teachers, staff, volunteers and participants, we cannot provide assistance for personal needs such as transferring into and out of chairs, walking, eating, or using the restroom.  If you require such assistance, you must bring a personal care assistant with you when you come to any event at EBMC.
