Mindfulness Meditation

Select Wednesdays, 12:30 pm

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 select Wednesdays. Sessions are guided by Kristoffer Rhoads, PhD, or Diane Biray Gregorio.

Registration is not required.
