Mindfulness and the Museum

Location: Reynolda Gardens and Grounds

Cost: $15;Free for members and WFU

Museums can be a place of respite and calm; works of art can prompt inward reflection. The Reverend Timothy L. Auman, Ph.D., MDiv, chaplain at Wake Forest University and founder and director of the MindfulWake initiative will join Julia Hood, director of teaching and learning at Reynolda House, to lead these workshops.

Mindfulness and the Museum: Finding Stillness in the Forest:
In this workshop, we’ll explore a few mindfulness practices in the natural world. From a slow, walking meditation to “forest bathing” (a Japanese practice that is not about bathing, but rather “absorbing the atmosphere of the forest”) we will spend time on the grounds at Reynolda slowing down and listening to the natural world and how it can help ground us.
