now offering ONLINE Events!
Dear friends in music, meditation and life,
So we can continue to be together, I've moved my JAM and meditation programs online.

I hope you'll join me for an online class or event soon. Here are the meditation options so far:
Ongoing Meditation Gatherings @ 8:30am MF + 7:30pm M (Zoom)
Five-week Mindfulness Series on Zoom, Monday evenings starting August 3
Mindful Moments on my Facebook page (ongoing)

Mindfulness for exceptional Times: Showing up for Ourselves and Our WorlD
5-week class series
Mondays, 8/3 - 8/31, 7:30-8:45pm
offered in partnership with recess collective*, via zoom
In this five-week online course, through guided practice, teachings offered, journaling, break-out groups, and sharing/discussion/Q&A, we’ll study several aspects of mindfulness, including:
Review of the Basics + Daily Practice Support
Mindfulness-Based Self-Care Practices
Lovingkindness and Compassion Practice for Self and All
Gratitude and Joy as Antidotes to Despair/Overwhelm
Showing up Mindfully for Our World
From the insecurity of a global pandemic to the incredible uprisings against injustice to the ever-present dangers of climate change and broken leadership, this is undeniably a huge and unwieldy time to be alive.
Will we disappear underneath our overwhelm or show up for ourselves and each other with love, clarity and purpose?
Mindfulness practice provides us with the tools necessary to stay present for all that is arising in both our external and internal realities, and to do the work to create discernment, spaciousness, kindness and understanding in a world that desperately needs us to wake up.
Participants will be supported in their practice with mid-week emails from Charity containing tips and inspiration, a meditation-buddy support system, and one 40-minute one-on-one session with Charity to be scheduled at your convenience.
It is wonderful, and necessary, to be in community for these practices and teachings.

Like so many artists and teachers, my ability to work has shifted dramatically due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I've moved my JAM and meditation programs online in an effort to provide continuity of programming, and I'm offering all these programs on a donation basis so the barrier to entry is less, as I know many are in difficult financial position these days.
I will need financial support in order to be able to continue offering programs. If you have the means, any donation you can offer helps immensely.
Ways to donate:
Please reach out if you'd like to donate but neither of these methods works for you.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
