Mindfulness and the Museum: Contemplative Viewing

Location: Reynolda House Museum of American Art

Cost: $15 | Free for Museum 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: Contemplative Viewing
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 learn 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.
