  • The East Bay Meditation Center (EBMC) is an independent center located in downtown Oakland, at 285 17th Street at Harrison, just 3 blocks from the 19th Street BART station. We offer meditation training and spiritual teachings from Buddhist and other wisdom traditions, with attention to social action, multiculturalism, and the diverse populations of the East Bay and beyond.

    A detailed profile of EBMC appears on the website of the World Religions and Spirituality Project of Virginia Commonwealth University.

    Our programs include meditation classes, daylong retreats, sitting groups, workshops, and classes.
    EBMC seeks to offer its programs to the widest possible audience. We do this in two ways:

    1. Some of our programs are specifically for People of Color, or the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex & Same-Gender Loving Communities. This provides a safe space for individuals who daily confront the effects of oppression, racism, or homophobia and heterosexism in their lives, and who therefore may choose to initially avoid mixed programs.

    2. We offer all of our programs for no registration fee or cost to the participant (except fundraising programs). Instead, we invite all program participants to make voluntary gifts at the end of each event, to the level of their ability, for the teacher(s) of the event and to the East Bay Meditation Center. This allows us to offer our programs to all individuals, independent of economic means. Traditionally, this is known as the practice of “Dana” or Generosity, and is a part of many spiritual traditions.

      EBMC has been a huge source of strength and inner resilience for a good friend. It is donation based and focuses on minority’s and women, and their issues in Oakland.
