Meditation for Regular People


Melissa Mattern + Jeff Gamer


Meditation for Regular People takes the mystery out of meditation.

We are a full time meditation studio that teaches using real life examples…lines at the grocery store, traffic, over-committing your schedule. Meditation can be intimidating. Am I doing it right? How do I sit? What if I have thoughts? When will it work? The classes are interactive, so your questions and goals for meditation are a part of your time in the studio. Our classes are all drop-in, so if are aren’t great at planning ahead or procrastinate, we’ve got your covered with convenient times and classes 6 days a week.

Why We Love Sellwood

Seeing different people recognize the many things they have in common, and enjoy learning together.

We’ve been collecting sand since 1978 and have sand from all over the world mixed together. When students travel, they bring us sand and we add it to our bowl in the studio. It reminds us that we are all connected!
