Teaches: Group Meditation

Janet was seeking peace and calm in her life and she knew she’d found it when tears began to flow during a meditation, signaling a release of emotions. The grounding and increased calmness she experiences keeps her meditation practice regular. Janet has been practicing meditation for about 8 years and earned her certificate to teach meditation through Hamsa Meditation Center. In her teaching, she hopes to impart that meditation is a practice, and there’s no wrong way to do it. Janet’s go-to meditation technique is following the breath; it’s a constant companion, always present. She has studied with Deepak Chopra, the Art of Living teachers trained by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, and currently with Caren Prentice.

Janet grew up in Kansas as the oldest of three girls. She enjoys the fall and springtime of Pennsylvania, where she currently lives in a retirement community with her husband (and high school sweetheart!). Janet is a devoted dog mom, drawn to the unconditional love of her three poodle mix girls: Hope, Faith, and Joy. She spends time quilting, knitting, and reading and can be found most often in her cherished attic space that functions as her office, meditation sanctuary, and yoga room.
