Apr 30 @ 12:15 pm – 12:45 pm

Meditation is the process of moving from the busyness of our external environment to a place of inner quietude. In this way, meditation is simple—but frequently it doesn’t feel easy. Our lives are full, and our commitments to others are significant. Most of us have little experience going inward and few tools to do so systematically.

Each Tuesday through May 28, 2019, we’ll take a moment out of our day to find a comfortable posture, calm the breath, relax deeply, and awaken to effortless attention. We’ll develop an effective practice to make common hurdles less troublesome and bring forward the fruits of meditation: reduced stress, improved sleep, enhanced sense of well-being, and greater access to intuition and creative states.

These free weekly drop-in sessions are appropriate for all levels of practitioners. Please join us, and then if you have time, visit the exhibitions and continue your contemplative practice. No special clothing or previous experience is required.
