Mindfulness at the Museum is a series of drop-in sessions focused on helping our wider community—inside and outside of the museum—to have access to tools to become more aware. Mindfulness meditation can help us to develop healthier minds and bodies, reduce stress, foster compassion, and increase our memory skills, among many other studied benefits. Participants may discover that this appreciation of the “here and now” extends outside the museum.
Join us for guided meditation on Fridays at noon. These free drop-in sessions are open to all; register here. No special clothing is required. Space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. No prior meditation experience is necessary.
This session is guided by Kate Johnson. Move your way into mindfulness with 20 minutes of gentle stretching, awareness-based movement and breathing practices, before settling into the stillness of a 20 minute guided sitting meditation session. We’ll continue with a brief discussion of the practice, guided by the themes of the current exhibition, and close with setting an intention to guide the rest of your day.
