MEETINGS WITH JOAN
Meetings with Joan invite an open exploration of the living reality Here / Now—seeing through the thoughts, beliefs and stories that create our suffering; waking up to the unbound, undivided, ownerless, choiceless, ever-changing, ever-present living reality from which nothing stands apart. Joan’s bare-bones approach is simple, direct and down-to-earth. She points beyond concepts and beliefs to the immediacy of direct knowing and being.

EVENTS IN ASHLAND, OREGON:
No meetings are currently scheduled. Check back for future developments. In general, meetings in Ashland happen once a month on a Sunday afternoon from 3 to 5 PM. A $5 to $20 donation is suggested for these meetings, but nothing is required, and everyone is welcome. Meetings are held at Shanti River Center, 300 E. Hersey #2. The door is on the side of the building. As you enter the business park from Hersey, go to the first office you see on your left, and follow the sign on the building for Shanti River Center, which will direct you around the corner to the door on the side. As you approach on foot, you'll see a sign on the door for Joan's event. In hot weather, the space is air-conditioned, so you may wish to bring layers if you are sensitive to that.
