Monthly, First Wednesdays, 12:30 pm
Frye Art Museum
Present-moment awareness is essential to experience and appreciate any work of art, but it can be elusive and we often find ourselves distracted or lost in thought. Through the training and practice of mindfulness meditation, we can apply present-moment awareness not only to experience art, but to all aspects of life. We can discover a calm amidst our to-do lists and more fully appreciate the gift of each day.
The Frye offers free, thirty-minute “drop-in” sessions of Mindfulness Meditation on select Wednesdays. Sessions are guided by Kristoffer Rhoads, PhD. For the safety of visitors, volunteers, and staff, capacity is limited to fifty participants on a first-come-first-served basis. Physical distancing is recommended for all activities, and masks are required throughout the program. Registration is not required.
Prefer not to practice in person? Recorded sessions will be available monthly on the Frye YouTube channel.
