Use art and guided meditation to connect to the moment and create a deeper understanding of artworks with our expanded series of mindfulness classes. Take a little extra time to look, listen and relax your mind with our teams of art educators and mindfulness guides. Presented in partnership with Hospice of the Valley, each session focuses on one work of art in the Museum, blending guided mindfulness practice with a deeper reflection of an individual artwork.
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction was developed at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in 1979 by physicist Jon Kabat-Zinn. Scientific studies show the practice of mindfulness can relieve anxiety, depression, pain, and stress and actually change the way you feel, think, work and play by opening new pathways in the brain.
