    Caroling Geary, will speak at the December 21 meeting of the Emerald Coast Meditation Society. Her topic will be “What I Learned from Zen Meditation.”

    The ECMS will meet at 6:30 p.m. at Christ the King, at 480 N. Co. Hwy. 393, one-half mile north of Hwy. 98. The meeting, open free to the public, begins with 30 minutes of silent meditation.

    Caroling (her artist name) will lead a Zen Sesshin-style program to include descriptions of Zen meditative customs that she has found valuable over her decades long study of Zen Buddhism. These include how to sit on a cushion, how to adapt this practice to sitting on a chair, and slow walking. A handout will be provided which describes these practices -- an article by our founder, Nancy Ann James (now retired).

    There will be a series of meditations including both walking and sitting meditation. In addition, since December 21st is the shortest day of the year, the program will also include a solstice alignment.

    Caroling is an artist, photographer, nature lover and visionary. Over 60 years, she has evolved her art from oriental ink drawing, oil painting, printmaking and stained glass into digital computer graphics and video.

    Raised in Minnesota, and having lived on both east and west coasts, she moved to this area in 2002. She has been active with the Florida Trail Association, Friends of Deer Lake State Park and South Walton Community Council. She takes part in Emerald Coast Meditation Society meetings and maintains ECMS pages on Facebook and Google+.

    Since retiring as a Silicon Valley technical writer in 1996, Caroling has worked fulltime on her website Wholeo.Net. She enjoys daily yoga and walking. She holds B.A. and M.F.A. degrees in art from the University of Minnesota and a certificate in electronics technology from Santa Rosa Junior College in California. She has a daughter and three grandsons.

    The ECMS is an ecumenical group open free to anyone. It meets on the first and third Thursdays of the month, September through June. The evening will end around 8 p.m. Anyone who would like meditation instruction should come at 6:15 p.m. Questions? Contact Tracey Tapp, tltapp@cox.net.
