Saturday October 14

Other dates...

4:00 PM  –  5:15 PM

Join 2023-2024 Artist-in-Residence, Eden Rayz (she/her), and end-of-life support person Madelaine Ripley (they/them) for a musical death awareness meditation centered around the concept of "nothingness."

The experience will begin with a brief explanation of the history and cultural significance of death awareness meditations then shift to a guided group meditation. Eden will perform with part of her new instrument, argent & sable (created for her Artist residency), while Ripley guides guests through a nonreligious meditation with English spoken word.

Meditators are welcome to bring yoga mats, pillows, and blankets to use during the meditation. The event will take place in Bigelow Chapel.
