Morning Mindfulness: Monastics Event

For the final spring session of Morning Mindfulness, the meditation practice program held at the Georgia Museum of Art, the museum hosted the Magnolia Grove Monastics from the Order of Thich Nhat Hanh. More than 70 attendees came for the event, which opened with songs, a brief seated meditation and a lecture on mindfulness. Guests were then lead through a guided walking meditation by the Monastics, activating the outdoor spaces of the museum and the Jane and Harry Willson Sculpture Garden.

Thank you to Brother Radiant, Brother Sang To, Brother Capacity, Brother Clarity, Sister Communication, Sister Joy, Sister Xu Nghiem and Sister Beauty for coming to the museum and promoting mindful meditation.

Morning Mindfulness is free and open to the public. We invite everyone to participate in guided mindfulness meditation in spaces throughout the museum.
