Arthur M. Sackler Gallery/Freer Gallery of Art, Smithsonian, Mid-Day Meditation Through August

I’ve been enjoying summer meditation through the Freer Gallery of Art. More information is below. At this time of change and disruption, meditation is something that can offer peace in your day.

Meditation helps us build a relationship to a place of inner quietude. To contribute to a sense of calm in this uncertain time, we are offering free 30-minute online meditations each week led by DC-based meditation teachers. These free sessions are appropriate for all levels of practitioners and include mindfulness practices and inspiration from art in the museum collection. All are welcome! No previous experience is required.
