“I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts,
there can be no more hurt, only more love.”

Mother Teresa

September 7   1pm – 1:45pm
Mindfulness Meditation – Led by Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche
For centuries Himalayan practitioners have used meditation to quiet the mind, calm the nervous system and increase focus. Now Western scientists, business leaders and the secular world have embraced meditation as a vital tool for brain health.

Whether you’re a beginner, a dabbler or a skilled meditator seeking the company of others, join Rinpoche in a forty-five-minute program designed to fit into your lunch break. Each session will be inspired by a different work of art from the Rubin Museum’s collection and will include an opening talk, a 20 minute sitting session and a closing session. Chairs will be provided and late comers may not be admitted past 1:10 PM to avoid disruption. Register Here

Both Jigme Rinpoche and Chaudhuri will participate in a talk with the audience after the screening. Register Here
