Visual Mindfulness: Intuitive Meditation for the Senses

MEDITATION SATURDAYS

Visual Mindfulness: Intuitive Meditation for the Senses

The Book Arts Center’s Saturday Meditation Visual Mindfulness Series seeks to immerse participants in a deep exploration of the work on view in our Gallery through meditation and discussion.

There are many ways to enter into meditation other than traditional Buddhist-based practices. In this workshop we will gather in a few mediations techniques to explore – each one will invite us to use our senses whether it be listening, looking, movement, or stillness.Each meditation is centered around the work on view in the gallery, with a discussion of the artwork. No previous experience with meditation is necessary.

This class welcomes anyone 16 years and above. There will be sitting, some standing, and if anyone is comfortable with lying down, please bring a yoga mat and cushion/blanket/bolster (whatever is preferred). Participants will have the choice to sit in a chair or be on the floor for the greater part of the session. Dress comfortably, and bring a shawl or yoga blanket if you tend to cool down when sitting or lying dow

Workshop guide Kate Stapleton Parzych has been studying intuitive meditation for the past five 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.
