E. Bay Meditation Center Benefit: Alice Walker, Jack Kornfield, Michael Beckwith

Alice Walker, Jack Kornfield, Michael Bernard Beckwith, three of our most brilliant and beloved spiritual teachers, will be in conversation for the first time! (tickets will probably sell out).

*****Let's meet @ 6:30 or sooner for possible dinner (any suggestions for a nearby place welcome). Indicate dinner interest on your RSVP! I will give out my cell # closer to the date. We can also hang out a bit after it's over for coffee/snack if people like.

"Be present for an evening that will inspire to create the Beloved Community Martin Luther King, Jr. so powerfully described.
As King wrote: "But the end is reconciliation; the end is redemption; the end is the creation of the beloved community. It is this type of spirit and this type of love that can transform opponents into friends. The type of love that I stress here is ... agape which is understanding goodwill for all men. It is an overflowing love which seeks nothing in return. ... This is the love that may well be the salvation of our civilization."
Be part of what will be a profound and beautiful evening. Your purchase of a ticket supports the on-going work of creating and nurturing the Beloved Community at EBMC. Your contribution supports a groundbreaking Center that offers spiritual sanctuary to all who seek it, regardless of economic means."
Thurs, April 4, 7:00 - 10:00 p.m. Zellerbach Auditorium, UCBerkeley Campus. Sliding Scale tickets range from $30-$100 ($20 for students w/ ID).

    sooo much wonderfulness going on. I'd like to try to join this event. How is it a meetup? are people meeting up ahead of time?

      Hi Maja. Yes, ideally, I'd like to meet up a half hour or so before it starts--so 6:30ish. But we could also meet earlier somewhere for dinner for those who'd like. I'm working that day, so not sure yet what time I'll be finished. Hope you can make it, and please pass it on...ps coffee afterwards too is a good possibility.

    Sounds cool!
    I've got another event for same time/day, so unfortunately unlikely I'd make it to this one.
    I know the area rather well, so feel free to hit me up for dining suggestions or whatever.

    Would love to join you, but have a late afternoon/into early evening meeting; so not sure if I could make it in time, coming from S.R., &
    then, needing to find parking, before looking for/meeting you...?

    March 29, 2013

    • daniele

      well, if you feel moved to buy a ticket anyway, i can always text you to let you know where we/I am, and can save a seat, if you know you're coming?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
