— Carey Mack Weber, Frank and Clara Meditz Executive Director

This January, the Fairfield University Art Museum is offering a continuation of its popular Meditation and Mindfulness classes on January 24 (virtual) and 25 (in-person), both at 4 p.m. 

“We are pleased to continue to offer [these] sessions in the galleries, as one of many ways that art helps to foster a healthy community,” said Carey Mack Weber, the museum's Frank and Clara Meditz Executive Director.  “One of the best places to experience mindfulness is at a museum, because art invites you to be present and to focus completely on the object in front of you.”

Classes will be led by Jackie DeLise, master certified meditation and mindfulness teacher and stress management expert, and author of The Art of Calm and Creating a Culture of Presence & Belonging. The meditation series will continue throughout the spring semester, once a month, with virtual class on Mondays and in-person class on Tuesdays. No prior experience is necessary and all participants will learn how to cultivate inner calm and clarity.

“Engaging mindfully with art can help you appreciate it more fully, and it might also help you gain some of the broader benefits of mindfulness,” added Weber.

All classes are free and open to the public, but registration is necessary.
