MEETINGS WITH JOAN
Meetings with Joan are an opportunity to explore the nature of the living reality Here / Now. In looking and listening together, we may find that nothing is really separate or lacking, that everything is one undivided happening, that there is no actual boundary between inside and outside, that the turbulent, overcast weather is as integral to this happening as the calm, sunny weather, and that none of it is personal. Public gatherings typically include silence, a talk by Joan, and an opportunity for questions and dialog. The emphasis is on open listening, awareness, and the simplicity of being this moment, just as it is.

MONTHLY PUBLIC MEETINGS IN ASHLAND, OREGON:
Ashland meetings are generally held on the 3rd Sunday of every month from 3-5 PM (with occasional exceptions). Confirmed upcoming meeting dates are: February 16, March 16 and April 20 (all from 3-5 PM). Meetings are held at Shanti River Center, 300 E. Hersey #2. The sign on the door for Shanti River Center is not easy to see from a distance, but it is the very first door on your left as you enter the business park from Hersey. As you approach on foot, you'll see a sign on the door for Joan's meetings. A $5 to $15 donation is suggested, but nothing is required, and everyone is welcome. On rare occasions in winter, Joan may be snowed in where she lives, and a meeting may need to be cancelled. If that happens, a message will be posted here by noon on the day of the meeting. You may want to check this page before going to meetings in the winter months if Ashland has had serious snow, freezing temps and icy roads, and don't forget to refresh or reload the page to be sure you are looking at the most current version of it. If there is no cancellation notice posted here by noon on the day of the meeting, you can assume it is happening as scheduled.
