Art of Meditation

In a unique (and relaxing) conjunction with its current Asian-inspired exhibition, Stefano Arienti: The Asian Shore (on view through Oct. 14), the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston is holding in-gallery meditation workshops Aug. 7, Sept. 4 and Oct. 2.

Participants will sit on rugs dyed by the Italian artist and will be surrounded by zen-like black-and-white drawings of Isabella Gardner‘s former Chinese Room. Boston spa Exhale will have wellness experts and licensed acupuncturists on site to conduct the guided meditation and “vibrational therapy” which uses a tuning fork to produce a “unique physiological response.”

The Gardner Museum is home to world-class art by Rembrandt, Degas, Michelangelo and Raphael. After the meditations, guests are welcome to peruse the three floors of outstanding art. The sessions are free with standard admission, but reservations are needed. To learn more, click here.

I don’t know about you, but I’m already starting to feel mellow.
