Mindfulness Meditation

Mindfulness Meditation

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 the first and third Wednesday of the month. Sessions on the third Wednesday of the month are guided by Katie Freeman. Registration is not required.

Prefer not to practice in person? Previous recorded sessions are available on the Frye YouTube channel.
