Friday September 20Mindfulness at the Museum
Mindfulness at the Museum is a series of drop-in guided meditation sessions facilitated by skilled holistic practitioners. The ICA hosts Mindfulness at the Museum most Fridays throughout the year, from noon to 1 PM. Each session begins with a brief description of how the interaction will unfold. From there, you are led into either walking or seated mediation for approximately 20 – 30 minutes, as you collectively engage with mindfulness in silence with fellow participants. The session wraps-up with a moment of reflection, providing you with an opportunity to learn more about the individuals you’ve taken this journey with, and how your collective experiences relate to art.
