Dharma meets art – meditation and Buddhist wisdom on the nature of the mind in relation to our time

One hour of meditation with Rachel Fuller on the concepts time, space and sensitivity.

Meditation in a secluded room followed by individual visits to the collection

Welcome to three meditation events, with a basic introduction to the concepts Time – the door to clarity (19 April), Space – the door to openness (20 April), and Sensitivity – the door to letting go (21 April).

The meditation takes place in a secluded room, equipped for this occasion with cushions and mats. After an hour of guided meditation, participants are encouraged to visit the Museum collection by themselves, to look at the works of art and reflect on the concepts of time, space and sensitivity that were focused in the meditation. As a participant, you will be introduced to reflection, silence, seated and walking meditation.

Art and meditation

The meditation is led by Vajradarshini, or Rachel Fuller as she is called in English. Meditation is a way to open up your awareness – and art can be another way. Rachel Fuller addresses some aspects that are shared by art and meditation, which we can then explore on our own in the Museum collection after the meditation.

Dharma meets art is part of the LABO Stockholm dance festival organised by the Cullberg Ballet.
