A meditation session led by Dr. Dan Siegel.

For centuries Himalayan practitioners have used meditation to quiet the mind, open the heart, calm the nervous system, and increase focus. Now Western scientists, business leaders, and the secular world have embraced meditation as a vital tool for brain health.

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 designed to fit into your lunch break. Each session will be inspired by a different work of art from the Rubin Museum’s collection and will include an opening talk, a twenty-minute sitting session, and a closing discussion. Chairs will be provided.

Program will be followed by a book signing of Dr. Dan Siegel’s book Mind: A Journey to the Heart of Being Human. This program is supported in part by the Hemera Foundation.

This month’s theme: Focus
