Join Michael Taft & The Alembic community for our Thursday evening in-person meditation! Stay after for tea & chatting.

Deconstructing Yourself is a weekly drop-in guided meditation (approximately one hour) plus Q & A with Berkeley Alembic founding teacher Michael Taft. Deconstructing Yourself is all about sharing the life-changing force that is meditation. We extend beyond any particular religion or technique in order to welcome any and all who are interested. Deconstructing Yourself strives to encourage, inform, and inspire your meditation practice towards ongoing awakening. Meditations are ilvestreamed and archived on YouTube .
Logistics :
1. The front door to The Alembic auto-locks, and since we don't want our volunteer to miss the sit, the door will be locked at 6:30. Please arrive early lest you end up streaming the YouTube sit from the parking lot.
2. There is ample free parking - details and directions will be in your confirmation email.
