Honoring our Ancestors

February 22 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

For Self Identified People of Color 

Led by Dr. Valerie (Vimalasara) Mason-John and Shahara Godfrey

Join us in this day long, where we reclaim our birth right of the mindfulness of breathing, and Loving kindness, to call in the ancestors, who walked before us, and paved the way so that we could begin to heal from the ills of world. Bring a photo preferably and if not a photo something that evokes one of your ancestors. Bring a poem, or a song, that reflects your ancestral lineage and or history. Bring an instrument, and bring your vibrant diverse voice.

Space is limited and registration is requested. 

Cost: There is no registration fee for attending this event, nor most EBMC events. However, EBMC is not independently funded. The Center and the teachers will be sustained only by your voluntary donations (the practice of generous giving, or “dana”). Please donate generously, in proportion to your ability:

* Either online (you will be offered an opportunity during the online registration process to donate to EBMC; the teachers will not receive any part of this online donation).
* Or at the event, in the two baskets at EBMC, one for the Center, the second for the Teacher.

Thank you for your generosity. EBMC will be only be sustained through our collective generosity.

Fragrance-free: 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.

EBMC is wheelchair accessible.
