BEING AT EASE WITH WHAT IS: Evening Talk & Retreat with Jan Frazier

  • Madrona MindBody Institute Building 310 Fort Worden Port Townsend, WA 98368 (map)

Please join us for an evening talk and/or weekend retreat with spiritual teacher and author, Jan Frazier.

Until the summer of her fiftieth year, Jan lived a life typical for a well-educated, middle-class American woman.  A divorced mother of two teenagers, she was making a modest living writing and teaching writing.  In August 2003, she experienced a radical transformation of consciousness.  Fear fell away from her, immersing her in a state of causeless joy that has never left her.  While she has continued her life as writer, teacher, and mother, she has discovered it is possible to live a richly human life free of suffering.  Her wish now is to communicate the truth that within every person is a pool of calm well-being that waits patiently to be stirred to life.

Evening Talk: Friday, July 10th, 7–9 pm: $20 if registered by June 15, $25 after.

Retreat: Sat-Sun, July 11th–12th, 9 am–4 pm (Bring your own lunch) $150 if registered by June 15, $185 after.

Books by Jan Frazier:

  • When Fear Falls Away: The Story of a Sudden Awakening (Weiser Books, 2007) is Jan’s day-by-day account of the shift in consciousness and its alteration of her life. 
  • The Freedom of Being: At Ease with What Is (Weiser Books, 2012) looks at the nature of suffering and explores ways beyond it. 
  • Opening the Door: Jan Frazier Teachings on Awakening (eBookIt, 2012) is an eBook collection of essays.  It opens the reader’s awareness to the possibility of a richly human life, beyond what appears possible to the ego and the mind.

Jan has been inspired by numerous teachers, but the joy she lives in belongs to no particular tradition, and is available to all.  Jan lives in southern Vermont, and this a rare opportunity to receive her teachings in person.
