Class Hiatus until 2019

I wish to extend all my best wishes to the community of Insight meditation students who have dropped in or regularly found refuge in meditation and dharma discussions on Monday nights. And thank those of you researching opportunities to meditate with a group.

I am deeply grateful for the shared-learning, growing and awakening wisdom we've exchanged over the weeks, months and now years. Like the fresh winds blowing in from the ocean it is time for me to open to the creative process at an expansive level, and follow where the bread-crumbs lead me. For my life-long-learning to keep freshened, I am taking a three year break from teaching assignments, staying in phone and email contact with students as each desire.

Kindly refer to this website or email valeta1bruce or phone/text: 541-728-8563 anytime for updates or to remain in contact for offerings.

May you keep your practice on the path.

Thank you for all you have contributed and teaching me humility, patient determination, the value of everyday kindness of attention, and for the commitment to love everything with all my heart as a forever student of life!

May love carry the meaning of attending, accepting, allowing, appreciating and knowing deep tender affection for all our lessons, growth and transformational experiences.  May each of us have spontaneous moments of transcending into essence.
