    Sylvia Barnhill would be a good connection for exploring different forms of meditation one on one as a beginner. She can be reached at We welcome all levels of experience or lack of experience at bliss. Pick one and come try it with us. -Tish

    Thanks for your interest. Unless otherwise noted in the class description, you do not need to preregister. bliss is a 501c3 non-profit retreat house. All of our classes are free. We do accept donations and host FUNraisers that you may want to attend, but your support is optional. I hope you will join us soon. -Tish
