MEETINGS WITH JOAN
Meetings with Joan are about exploring, celebrating and enjoying the living reality Here / Now, seeing through the thoughts and beliefs that limit and confuse us, and waking up to the aliveness and simplicity of presence. These gatherings are not about intellectual or philosophical discussion, and the words are always secondary. The heart of every meeting is the listening presence, the awareness, the aliveness of whatever shows up, and the possibility of recognizing what is always already whole and complete. Public meetings typically include silence, a talk by Joan and an opportunity for questions.
