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 wonder of this moment, just as it is. The heart of every meeting is the listening presence, the open awareness, the aliveness of being, and the possibility of discovering the Holy Reality in whatever shows up. Public gatherings include silence, a talk and an opportunity for questions and dialog.

MONTHLY PUBLIC MEETINGS IN ASHLAND, OREGON:
Ashland meetings are generally held on the 3rd Sunday afternoon of every month (with occasional exceptions). Confirmed upcoming meeting dates are: Feb 15, March 15, and April 19 (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 $20 donation is suggested, but nothing is required, and everyone is welcome.
Please note: On rare occasions in winter, Joan has been snowed in where she lives, and once a meeting had to be cancelled as a result. In the unlikely event this happens again, 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 unusually heavy snow accompanied by 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.
