YOKO ONO: THE RIVERBED Guided Meditation

Sat May 12, 2018 9:00AM - 10:30AM

Clear your head, silence your phone, and experience YOKO ONO: THE RIVERBED in solitude on a quiet Saturday morning. Co-presented with the Shambhala Meditation Centre of Toronto, these intimate guided meditation sessions will take place in the exhibition space, just before the museum opens to the public. Situated specifically within Ono’s Stone Piece installation, visitors will receive introductory meditation instruction, and a deeper understanding of how to bring present-moment awareness into daily life. Each session will be followed by a tea and conversation.

March 24: Connecting with your basic nature
April 21: Staying open in any situation
May 12: Bringing meditation into everyday life

This session will included guided meditation instruction (sitting and walking) with an emphasis on bringing meditation into everyday life. By developing the mind’s natural strength, clarity, and kindness we become increasingly awake in our lives which affects our relationships, family lives, and career. In this session we will discuss some of the obstacles to developing mindfulness and awareness and some of the ways that we can establish a regular meditation practice.
