Learn to Rock Climb at Cragmont Park in Berkeley
Outdoor Adventure Club, LLC – Learn to rock climb outdoors with the OAC at Cragmont Park in the Berkeley Hills! This introduction to outside rock climbing in the cliffs and crags in the Berkeley Hills is a great way to develop climbing skills on real rock. First timer and beginner climbers will be introduced to rock climbing in this great outdoor environment. This Outdoor Adventure Club activity is designed as an introduction to the exciting sport of outdoor rock climbing — an adventure that delivers great fun, beautiful scenery, as well as physical and mental stimulation. There’s nothing like the exhilaration of working your way up a rock face, then rappelling down like you’re dancing on the walls. We have a small maximum climber to guide ratio (6 to 1) so you are sure to get plenty of personalized instruction with safety as our number one priority, with fun a close second. Anyone can learn to rock climb. You don't need extreme upper body strength and no climbing experience (even indoors) is required. Why climb with the Outdoor Adventure Club? In a word, or four, we are professional guides. We've been teaching the Bay Area to climb since 1996. You are spending the day with a guide trained by the American Mountain Guides Association, and certified as Wilderness First Responders. Unlike some "adventure" groups, we don't contract out our climbing. We are your guides. Our focus is not only on taking you out and letting you climb, but setting up the safest climbing situations, and teaching you in a very patient, supportive and friendly manner. Besides safety, OAC guides are knowledgeable of the climbing scene, and eager to help you develop your climbing skills. Also, unlike other outfitters who offer shorter climbing days with much less time on the rope, we keep going! When you climb with us, you'll get a full day of climbing in. We've seen some discount climbing companies packing up at 1:00, while we're moving to our second location for the day. And we don't just send you up the rope, we teach you to climb. We love climbing! Pricing: Non-Members: $125 Members: $95 Ultimate Members: Free FOR FULL DETAILS AND TO REGISTER FOR THE TRIP, PLEASE VISIT OUR WEBSITE:!event/2018/3/17/learn-to-rock-climb-outdoors-at-cragmont-in-the-berkeley-hills-3-17

Opening to Yourself Is Opening to All
The Breema Center – This class is a perfect way to begin your exploration of Breema and The Art of Being Present. We begin by practicing nurturing self-care exercises (Self-Breema) that you can easily do at home, and then exchange partner sequences (Breema Bodywork) that support aliveness and flexibility in the body, mind and feelings (and also profound relaxation). We will work with the body's natural weight and breathing, and become familiar with Breema's uniquely balanced quality of touch, which simultaneously expresses each of the Nine Principles of Harmony. This is an opportunity to deeply nourish yourself and discover a more centered and open-hearted posture in life. Please be comfortable sitting and kneeling on the floor, as many of the exercises are done there. $15 (early payment discount $10) For more information please contact: The Breema Center (510) 428-0937 or

Emptiness and Not-Self - An Introduction
East Bay Meditation Center – Emptiness and Not-Self: An Introduction with Shahara Godfrey & Deb Kerr Saturday, March 17th 10AM - 4:30PM East Bay Meditation Center 285 17th Street, Oakland, CA Event Description: The tools brought by meditation have one primary goal: to see the truth of our lives and be liberated by it. One central aspect of the truth is the Buddhist concept of not-self. Put simply, this means that, as the Buddha said, “Nothing whatsoever is to be clung to as ‘I’ or ‘mine.’” The teachings on emptiness and not-self are closely related, and can bring up resistance, confusion and even fear. But as we open to these teachings, there is huge relief and space for joyful ease. This day long is open to all practitioners, and will include periods of stationary and moving meditation, interactive exercises, and practical ways of touching into emptiness. Teacher Bio: Shahara Godfrey has trained in the Theravada Buddhist tradition for over 20 years. Other influences have been spiritual teachers from various cultures and traditions as well as the creative arts. She is a graduate of CDL and POE programs from Spirit Rock. Shahara has a Ph.D. and currently works as an Educator. Debra Kerr has meditated since 1991, and is influenced by both Vipassana and Dzogchen practices. She is a graduate of Spirit Rock’s Community Dharma Leader training, a Core Teacher at East Bay Meditation Center, guiding teacher of the Every Body Every Mind Sangha at EBMC, and Co-leader of the Alameda Sangha. Deb is especially interested in maximizing well-being through the practices of lovingkindness and the liberation teachings of the Buddha. Space is limited & registration is required. Register at or email for registration information. Cost: The teachings are regarded as priceless. So they are offered without a fee. You are invited to support the teachings and our efforts by contributing voluntary donations (the practice of “Dana”) for the expenses of the meditation center and the support of the teachers. 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.
