More meditation opportunities coming up mid February through the Women of Wisdom Conference at North Seattle Community College, Feb 14-18. There are over 40 speakers on a range of topics from self-defense to Yoga and the Mandala Creative workshop to Mantra Singing to a Navajo Ceremony and Meditation with Medicine Keeper, Patricia Anne Davis.
