Grant Sparks New Mindfulness Programming

Author: Mara Trionfero

We are excited to announce a new mindfulness series this fall in collaboration with the Snite Museum of Art.  Thanks to a grant from the Hemera Foundation for “Meditation in Museums”, we were able to think creatively about new collaborative opportunities for sharing mindfulness and meditation with the Notre Dame community.  Launching Wednesday, September 13, The Charles B. Hayes Family Sculpture Park reopens this fall with the exhibition theme of "Reclaiming Our Nature," and this series of mindfulness meditation programs drawing on the physical nature of the space and our human nature to practice being present through awakening our senses. Meditation teacher and ND research professor Deirdre Guthrie will lead all three thematic sessions exploring our own inner landscapes of well-being as we engage with sacred symbols of art, nature, and our own deeply interwoven selves.

Meet at the northwest entrance (east of the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center and south of the construction for the Walsh Family Architecture Building) to the Sculpture Park. The Sculpture Park itself is located near Eddy Commons at the northeast corner of Edison/Angela and Eddy Street. This program is free and open to all. 


Attend all three sessions: 
"Transcendence," Wednesday, September 13th at 8:00 p.m.
"Cycles of Life," Thursday, September 28th at 5:00 p.m.
"The Elements," Saturday, October 7th at 10:00 a.m.
