Ruth Handy is the founder of the Jizo Peace Center and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. She has a strong mandate to share the gentleness of Jizo Bodhisattva from Japan and other Asian countries and to help bring peace to the world. Ruth has practiced meditation for over 30 years at Ananda Ashrama in La Crescenta, CA and attended Buddhist retreats. She traveled to Japan, India, and China to understand more about faith and the power of love to inspire our lives.

Joyce Dvoren, a weekend resident of PMC, will offer a mixed level hatha yoga class followed by optional deeksha, or Oneness Blessing, during savasana (relaxation). Deeksha is a hands-on blessing from the Oneness University in Southern India, which helps to align the energy centers of the body. Everyone's experience is different; a common response is deeper relaxation. Joyce teaches a variety of yoga classes in Los Angeles at L.A. Fitness, Santa Monica Yoga, the Cancer Support Community and retirement homes.
