MEETINGS WITH JOAN
Meetings with Joan invite a direct and open exploration of the living reality Here / Now. The focus is on seeing through the thoughts and beliefs that limit and confuse us, and waking up to the aliveness and simplicity of this moment, just as it is. These gatherings are not about intellectual or philosophical discussion, and the heart of every meeting is listening presence, awareness, the aliveness of being. Public gatherings typically include silence, a talk by Joan and an opportunity for questions and dialog. The atmosphere is informal and relaxed.
