interConnected: Challenging Racism Inside and Out with Compassion, Mindfulness and Action  For those who identify as white with Kitsy Schoen, Gregory Mengel and JD Doyle Evening Sessions: Wednesdays, September 5, 12, 19* & 26, 2018 6:30 - 9 pm and Daylong Retreat: Sunday, September 23rd   10 am - 4:00 pm East Bay Meditation Center  285 17th Street, Oakland, CA 94612 As white people in the U.S., we have been shaped by social, economic and other systems in which unearned privilege accrues to white people. To the extent that we are unaware of this system of white privilege and racial conditioning, we behave in ways that lead to suffering for ourselves, others, the larger society. Further, we may not realize how our conditioning stops us from joining with other white people to change the system and ourselves. This class focuses on the skills, support and understanding needed to continue to disrupt racism within ourselves in our communities. *Participants may omit this class to honor Yom Kippur.  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 admin@eastbaymeditation.org.  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.
