with Tracy Cochran
Thursday, May 11, 2023
1:00 PM–1:45 PM
For centuries Himalayan practitioners have used meditation to quiet the mind, open the heart, calm the nervous system, and increase focus. Mindfulness meditation offers a refuge from the world and an opportunity to engage more consciously.
Whether you’re a beginner, a dabbler, or a skilled meditator seeking the company of others, join expert teachers in a forty-five-minute weekly program. Each session is inspired by a different work of art from the Rubin Museum’s collection. Designed to fit into your lunch break, the program includes an opening talk, a twenty-minute sitting session, and a closing discussion, followed by a short, optional tour in the galleries. Chairs will be provided.
This week’s in-person meditation session will be led by Tracy Cochran, and the theme for this month is Change.
This program is presented in partnership with Sharon Salzberg, the Interdependence Project, and Parabola Magazine and supported by the Frederick P. Lenz Foundation for American Buddhism.
