GRACE Offering Meditation Among Artwork

Continuum by Rebecca Kamen/Courtesy GRACE

Ever just want to clear your mind?

The Greater Reston Arts Center and Reston’s Beloved Yoga are teaming up for a meditation workshop among the latest GRACE art installation.

The workshop, Contemplate Art: Thought Experiments, Black Holes & Meditation, will have a session Jan. 28, which has already filled. There will also be a session Monday, Feb. 8 from 7 to 8:30 p.m., as well as one for teens on Thursday, Feb. 11 from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Beloved Yoga directors Maryam Ovissi and Jafar Alexander will lead participants through a thoughtful exploration of the ideas presented in Rebecca Kamen’s exhibition Continuum.

From GRACE:

We will sit among the art work and experience first hand the “Thought Experiments” that Einstein used to give birth to the Theory of Relativity. We will also dive deeply into the idea of black holes and expand perceptions that black holes don’t only give birth to stars and planets in other dimensions but that they are very much related to the space within ourselves that gives birth to creativity and ideas.

If you are an artist, this discussion/experience will offer you new tools to approach your work and process. This event is perfect for anyone that is curious.

The session is for ages 18 and up. Free for GRACE members. $5 donation for non-members. Email [email protected] to register.
