Just Say “Ommmmm”
The holidays are intended to be the most wonderful time of the year—but they can be more stressful than joyful. Between the madness that ensues the day after Thanksgiving and the chaos that is the mall at Christmastime, we all could use a little mental relaxation.
The Hunter Museum and meditation specialist Yong Oh will be providing a guided meditation class on Wednesday, Dec. 9 at 1 p.m. to help calm our minds and soothe our Christmas spirits.
Meditation is all about grounding yourself in the present moment and focusing your attention on fostering calm. With a little deep breathing, low repetitive sounds, and the ability to let the day slip away, “The Art of Meditation” is sure to bring the stress levels down a few notches and allow participants to appreciate a work of art. Marcel Proust wrote, “The real voyage of discovery consists, not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”
Clear your mind, your inner eye, and let the world become fresh again with Oh and the Hunter curators.
No meditation experience is necessary, nor is special clothing. Please bring a mat, pillow, cushion as they will not be provided, but a limited number of chairs will be. The event is free, so spend your Wednesday night breathing in all the holiday cheer and breathing out the stresses of the day.
