Please visit our virtual sangha on Facebook at We Are the Ones! I'm posting meditation tips, inspirations and ways we can act to heal ourselves, the earth, and our relationship to it.
I am currently offering a variety of classes and workshops addressing different aspects of mindfulness. Peruse the offerings below to find one that's right for you.
And if you are interested in private instruction (individual or family-based), or would like to set up a class for your community, parents' group, etc, please contact me directly.
And be sure to check out "Sit Breathe Love", our collection of guided meditations for families and classrooms!

“So clear is the spacious heart when touched in the night by Moon, by Tara, by Sangha, all saying yes and yes -- together, beyond, and within. I am, most simply, clear.” ~ Diantha C. Rau

All who identify as women are welcome. Minimum age: 14. Bring a journal and something to charge on the altar if you so desire. Replenish, set intentions, connect, start fresh!

[3-HR WORKSHOP, SATURDAY APRIL 28, 1-4PM]
[70 MIN CLASS MEETING SATURDAY MORNINGS 9:00am-10:10am]
Come join these weekly meditation experiences in community. Classes consist of a talk on a topic related to Mindfulness or Insight Meditation (Vipassana), a guided meditation and relevant mindfulness exercises, mindful movement or walking meditation and an opportunity for questions/discussion.
A commitment to regular mindfulness practice has been shown to help reduce stress, increase well-being, regulate emotions, increase compassion, attain more balance, and much more. So come treat yourself to some relief, restoration, and a practice that has the capacity to transform your relationship to life!
