Bio: Deborah is a former journalist and corporate communicator who came to meditation for the same reasons as many people: to survive various crises and to seek answers to previously unanswerable questions. After dipping her toe in for a few years, she jumped in with both feet, found a peace she hadn’t experienced before, and now shares her knowledge and enthusiasm about meditation whenever she can. Meditation isn’t rocket science. In fact, it might just be the simplest – and best – thing you ever do for yourself.

Name of Practice: Meditation For Regular People

Contact: meditation4people@gmail.com
Bio: Melissa is the founder and lead teacher of the Meditation for Regular People studio in Southeast Portland.  She takes the mystery out of meditation and mindfulness by using real life examples…like traffic, family, and waiting in line.  She helps you create a sustainable meditation practice, and have fun doing it.  Get ready to “geek out” on how meditation increases your neuroplasticity and efficiency, ‘cause she’s a brain geek. The community at the studio is welcoming and there’s a full schedule of meditation classes every week including Metta, Mantra, and Extended Sits.  We meditate to become better people, not better meditators…so come on in and create some positive change in your life.
