YOKO ONO: THE RIVERBED Guided Meditation

Sat March 24, 2018 9:00 am - 10:30 am

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

Meditation practice allows one to cultivate an innate sense of peace and simplicity. From the Shambhala Buddhist perspective, all human beings are able to connect with a state of mind that is calm, uncomplicated, and brave despite the busyness and emotional ups and downs we may experience in our daily lives. This session will include meditation instruction and guided practice from the Shambhala tradition with an emphasis on relaxing into what is already there rather than trying to “fix” who we are.
