Experience art like never before through a series of guided meditations led by Tibetan meditation expert Alejandro Chaoul, Ph.D., among works from the Rice Public Art collection. As “slow art” is celebrated internationally this April, see how rewarding an extended encounter with art can be and how much contemplative looking and meditation have in common. Practice the art of meditation, learning techniques that may help promote presence, awareness and connection. Develop foundational techniques for a meditative practice to help navigate stress and to deepen your appreciation for the artfulness of everyday life. Weather permitting, we will visit one work in the Rice Public Art collection each week.

Note: This course is offered for educational purposes only. Please consult with the professional of your choosing if you are seeking specific therapeutic or medical advice. Participants should wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring a cushion if choosing to sit on the floor or ground.
