Mindfulness Meditation

with Rebecca Li

Thursday, May 9, 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 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 20-minute sitting session, and a closing discussion. Chairs are provided.

This week’s in-person meditation session will be led by Rebecca Li, and the theme for this month is Balance.
