YOKO ONO: THE RIVERBED Guided Meditation

Sat April 21, 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

What are the benefits of meditation practice? An important one is learning to be kind to ourselves whatever our state of mind may be. By doing so we develop a greater capacity to truly see and hear others. This session will include meditation instruction and guided practice from the Shambhala tradition with an emphasis on staying present with whatever arises. Sometimes called “making friends with ourselves”, the openness we extend to our own minds helps us be present with others.
