If you can’t find Zen here... Meditation is now mainstream and is being practiced in many different places, in many ways. The meditation taught in this course has its roots in Zen practice. In our everyday lives, we can see how complex life can be and how we need to have a place to relax and catch our breath sometimes. In this class, you will learn that this place of rest already exists ... in our own bodies. The most important point in this class is to learn how to just sit and be very comfortable and restful. It’s a practice and tool that can be applied to any life endeavor. INSTRUCTOR: JOE ARMENIO COURSE TITLE: ZEN MEDITATION TUESDAYS, JAN 21 – FEB 11, 6PM – 7:30PM • $35 CENTRAL CAMPUS, NEWPORT

Love Lives Forever This class addresses, in a low-key, understandable and accepting manner, the concept that Love Never Dies and that connecting with deceased loved ones is possible. “The class is suitable for anyone who is open to the possibility of life after death or anyone who may have experienced unexplained events after the death of a loved one but is unsure if they have received actual messages,” said instructor Violet Young. “Love Lives Forever assists participants in becoming more aware of the possibility of messages from beyond the veil. In my experience, many people have experienced messages and visitations but are often self-conscious or afraid to believe it. I present my own experiences since my husband crossed over on April 6, 2015, as well as personal experiences with other family members. The class is a forum for people to share their own experiences and thoughts about the possibility that they have received messages from their loved ones and to explore their feelings about the experiences. Love Lives Forever is spiritually based, however it is not religious. During the class, techniques for quieting the mind, meditating and choosing a medium are offered as well as handouts and a resource list.” INSTRUCTOR: VIOLET YOUNG, METAPHYSICAL EDUCATOR WEDNESDAYS, FEB 12 – MARCH 18, 5:30 – 7:30 PM • $45 SOUTH COUNTY CENTER, WALDPORT
Creating Your Joyful Life Our own personal belief systems and self-talk set us up to perceive the world either negatively or positively, says instructor Violet Young. “We are not conscious of the patterns being formed as we are influenced and preconditioned by and through our upbringing and life experiences. Eventually we come to accept the ‘it’s just the way it is’ way of life, and this may lead to depression and anxiety. By exploring and learning to recognize our own patterns and triggers we give ourselves options to view situations from different perspectives helping us be more open to make choices that painlessly create new growth and joy. Students who have taken this class report that they are enjoying their lives more, that they feel more positively about themselves and that they are motivated to be more kind to and aware of the needs of others.” INSTRUCTOR: VIOLET YOUNG, METAPHYSICAL EDUCATOR MONDAYS, JAN 6 – FEB 24, NOON – 2PM • $45 NO CLASS MONDAY JAN 2O & FEB 17 CENTRAL COUNTY CAMPUS, NEWPORT
