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 Wednesdays of each month. Sessions are guided by Kristoffer Rhoads, PhD. Physical distancing is recommended for all activities, and masks are required throughout the program. Registration is not required. 

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


Kristoffer Rhoads, PhD is a clinical neuropsychologist at Harborview and an associate professor of Neurology at the University of Washington School of Medicine. Dr. Rhoads specializes in evaluating and treating dementia and neurodegenerative disorders. His clinical interests include neuropsychological evaluation of neurodegenerative disorders, non-pharmacological treatment of memory and neurological disorders, cognitive rehabilitation, and cross-cultural evaluations and treatment.
