Mar 22, 2024, 10:00am — 12:00pm

Location: Reynolda House Museum of American Art

Cost: $15 per person | Free to Wake Forest University students, staff and faculty,

Any artwork can be an opening to conversation and fresh seeing. Through guided meditations, mindful walking, and spending enough time for a piece of art to speak to you, participants will practice the ancient art of quieting the mind, opening the heart, and engaging with the world more consciously.

The invitation is to explore what these works of art might have to say to us today and how, through collective exploration, we may more carefully consider them.

The Reverend Timothy L. Auman, Ph.D., MDiv, chaplain at Wake Forest University and founder and director of the MindfulWake initiative joins Julia Hood, director of teaching and learning, at Reynolda House, to lead this workshop.
