In-gallery Guided Meditation
Relying on the artist’s creation of an immersive audio-visual environment, there will be a series of short guided meditations with attention on seeing and listening separately. Then, there will be a guided meditation putting it all together and experiencing the art in its totality, as a meditative exercise. There will be time for a short discussion. The goal is to provide a reference point for ways to view art that correspond with a deepening awareness of the present moment. The gallery can be a bit cool, so you might want to bring a sweater or jacket to stay comfortable. Chairs and limited soft seating will be available. Bring your own yoga mat &/or cushion if you would like a particular setup.
Inspired by the work of Irish-born artist Jane Cassidy, these two in-gallery meditation sessions will further immerse you in the sights and sounds of the exhibition, Drink up the Moon, on display September 1 – November 12, 2023.
Saturday, October 28 & Sunday, October 29 • 3:30pm
FREE & open to the public!
Eventbrite registration is encouraged, space is limited.
