Drop-In Meditation Class!

“Happy Hour with August and Kaye”

The Mt. Adams Zen Buddhist Temple is sponsoring a weekly drop-in meditation class in Hood River, facilitated by August Jensen and Kaye Jones, focusing on Vipassana (mindfulness) and Metta (loving-kindness) practices. Each session will consist of a short Dharma talk (presenting the view, theory, philosophy of practice) and instruction on formal technique, followed by a period of meditation practice, to conclude with a group discussion and Q & A.
Aimed at developing our ability to open to, and inhabit our lives, this group welcomes all skill-levels, from beginner to advanced practitioners. Each week we will explore different aspects of the practice (body, breath, emotions, mind, thinking, daily life) and leave space at the end to discuss the variety of challenges and insights we discover along the path.
Location: Hood River Foundation for Vibrant Living, 1029 May St. Hood River Time: Thursdays at 5pm, beginning April 18th Cost: Donation
Payment by Dana —…

Hello! My name is Anya. I’m a licensed mental health therapist currently accepting new clients in the Columbia River Gorge. Due to the current COVID -19 outbreak, I am offering Telehealth (video sessions that are HIPAA secure) to ensure your safety and well-being.

Despite the joys and beauty in our world, as humans, we also experience pain and struggle in response to life’s many challenges. Whether it be various transitions, significant events, relationship concerns, poor self-views, or the discomfort of anxiety and negative mood, therapy can offer the attention and care we need in navigating our lives. It is here that we can safely explore who we are - we can develop curiosity, awareness, and compassion towards self, while bringing honor to our past and current experiences.
