A meditation session led by Tracy Cochran.
For centuries Himalayan practitioners have used meditation to quiet the mind, open the heart, calm the nervous system, and increase focus. Mindfulness meditation offers both a refuge from the world around us, and an opportunity to engage with it 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.

Mount Meru, depicted in this small Tibetan Buddhist model, is the center of our universe in the Hindu, Jain, and Buddhist cosmologies. Though the symbolism of Meru varies from tradition to tradition, it is always a mountain of mythical proportions that connects the heavenly and earthly realms, serving also as the anchor around which all heavenly bodies orbit and as the focus of the world.
