MEETINGS WITH JOAN
Joan invites an open, awareness-based exploration of the living reality here-now, questioning beliefs, discovering in the moment how suffering is created, waking up from the story of our life, and recognizing the simplicity of what is. Joan’s bare-bones approach is simple, direct and down-to-earth. She points not to some future attainment, but to the immediacy of here-now and the simplicity of being just this moment, exactly as it is.
