MEETINGS WITH JOAN
Meetings with Joan are about exploring the living reality Here / Now, seeing through the thoughts and beliefs that limit and confuse us, and waking up to the aliveness of presence, the power of awareness, and the wonder of being just this moment. Public gatherings typically include meditation (being in silence, doing nothing, giving open attention to the present moment), a talk by Joan, and an opportunity for questions.
