Mindfulness Meditation

with Kimberly Brown

Thursday, January 18, 2024
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 45-minute weekly in-person program, each inspired by a different work of art from the Rubin Museum’s collection. The program includes an opening talk, a 20-minute sitting session, and a closing discussion. Chairs will be provided.

This week’s in-person meditation session will be led by Kimberly Brown, and the theme for this month is New Beginnings.

This program is presented in partnership with Sharon Salzberg and teachers from the New York Insight Meditation Center, the Interdependence Project, and Parabola Magazine and supported by the Frederick P. Lenz Foundation for American Buddhism.
