Mindfulness in the Museum - 8/27

On Wednesday, August 27 from 5:30p-6:30p, The Hood Museum is partnering with the Shambala Center in WRJ, VT to offer time for guided reflection in the museum while meditating on art. Participants will work with the experience of being mindful and present while opening up their senses and experiencing the full richness of the galleries and the art presented there. No prior experience or registration is necessary. For more information, contact Alison Palizzolo or click here.
