Retreat with Carol Cano Open to all self-identified women Letting go is part of the health of our heart. Difficulties at work, loss of a loved one, the changes of society; all of these transitions are a calling for us to pay attention to our bodies and our hearts, and the state of our mind and emotions. This daylong will focus on the health of our heart, body, mind and emotions in order to renew and regenerate a state of self-compassion and kindness. We will cultivate with other grandmothers, mothers, sisters, daughters, lovers, and community members, together on the path of wellness. Carol Cano brings a unique combination of Basque, Native American and Buddhist influences into her teachings. Carol serves on the Leadership and Teacher Sanghas of the East Bay Meditation Center. She started her practice 30 years ago at Wat Kow Tahm in Thailand. Carol was a member of the Diversity Council at Spirit Rock Meditation, and completed the Dedicated Practitioner Program and Community Dharma Leader Program.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org EBMC TEACHERS ARE NOT PAID BY THE CENTER and and you can offer a voluntary financial gift to them at the class.
