On December 1st, our beloved family, friend and teacher, Shahara Godfrey transitioned peacefully after a long health struggle. Shahara deeply touched and was involved with the lives of so many people and communities. Her life was a life of unwavering service with more than 20 years in the mental health field supporting people with HIV, children and families, and harm reduction.
Shahara taught at the East Bay Meditation Center for over 10 years, co-founding the Family Sangha, Recovery Sangha, leading many retreats and classes, and served as a Core Teacher.
We at the East Bay Meditation Center want to support Shahara's family with burial expenses and outstanding bills, which are significant. We are asking those touched by Shahara's teachings, her spirit, and her wise and compassionate heart, to donate towards these expenses. All funds raised will be given directly to Shahara's family.
We also invite you to contribute to Shahara's online memorial board here.
