When one enters an art gallery, the mind naturally becomes peaceful: as we spend time in a quiet, spacious environment surrounded by beautiful artwork, our ordinary mental turmoil begins to subside.
On Sunday July 31st come to the Rockaway Artist Alliance in Fort Tilden to join Ven. Khenmo Drolma, abbess of Vajra Dakini monastery, for a day-long meditation retreat amidst art from the exhibit Forbidden Fruit: Street Art in a National Parkt and Moma PS1’s Rockaway! special outdoor installation by Katharina Grosse.
Khenmo Drolma will lead us on an investigation of the mind and its infinite capacity for compassion, utilizing the time-honored meditation techniques of Tibetan Buddhism.
