Please note that the streets surrounding BAM/PFA will be closed between 6 a.m. and 5 p.m. for the UC Berkeley Road Race Weekend.

Meditate in the galleries! In conjunction withSilence and Himalayan Pilgrimage: Sacred Space.

Lifelong spiritual student and teacher Anushka Fernandopulle, who has practiced in Theravada Buddhist

monasteries in Asia and urban centers in the U.S., leads the second in our series of three hour-long guided
meditation sessions in the galleries.

Informed by creative arts, nature,and political engagement, Fernandopulle leads an LGBT meditation group in San Francisco and teaches with several Bay Area meditation centers. She is particularly interested in the synthesis of leadership and mindfulness, and her dharma writings have been published in Turning Wheeland Inquiring Mind.

These sessions are appropriate for both experienced and beginning practitioners. Please bring a pillow or mat to make yourself comfortable on the gallery floor.
