Book Arts’ Meditation Saturdays: Visual Mindfulness Series seeks to immerse participants in a deep exploration of the artwork on view in our Gallery through meditation and discussion. Each meditation invites us to use our senses whether it be listening, looking, movement, or stillness.
There are many ways to enter into meditation other than traditional monastic-based practices. No previous experience with meditation is necessary for this unique and contemplative gathering.
Please note: This class welcomes anyone 14 years and above. Dress comfortably, and bring a shawl or yoga blanket if you tend to cool down when seated in stillness.
Meditation guide Kate Stapleton Parzych of Sundri Anand has been studying intuitive meditation for the past six years with Dr. Lorin Roche, who translated the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra as the Radiance Sutras. She has found that taking a few minutes (there’s 1440 in 24 hours to choose from!) to observe the world around her and the world within her creates a peace that she can access throughout the day.
