About The Living Room Studio


Founded by Joe Iadanza in 2013, The Living Room Studio was created to provide sacred space for individuals looking to deepen their spiritual practice through meditation, spiritual direction, A Course in Miracles, workshops, courses and retreats.

The Living Room respects that everyone has a unique path to travel, and endeavors to grow a global spiritual community free of judgment and full of unconditional love for you as you learn to recognize the blocks that keep you from experiencing your true nature.

The Living Room is an intention… It’s a prayer of support in the awakening of our global community and for the healing of our wounded perceptions. Join us and learn to follow a new inner teacher. Be gentle with yourself, forgive everything, and bring that perception back into alignment with Truth.

Welcome and thank you!
