Mindfulness Meditation Session with Larry Birkett
Start Date: 1/24/2020Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 1/24/2020End Time: 1:00 PM

Event Description:
In this Mindfulness Meditation series we will use artworks featured in Toward the Texture of Knowing and other artworks on view as the objects of our meditation. We will explore the connection between mindfulness meditation and creativity. In Toward the Texture of Knowing the featured artists have created works through “wakeful attention to common experiences”. Ultimately the practice of meditation teaches us how to ground our experience in a non-reactive space. In this non-reactive, core space, we can learn to live more creatively with conditionality.
These mindfulness meditation sessions in the Haggerty’s galleries will be led by Larry Birkett, who has been consistently practicing Buddhist/mindfulness meditation since 2010. In 2013, Larry became involved in teaching mindfulness meditation and yoga to prison inmates. He also regularly teaches mindfulness meditation to faculty, staff and students at Marquette University (where he serves as Associate Director of the Marquette Spirit Shop).
