Join us for a guided meditation with Sarah Frew, the Kadampa Meditation Center Philadelphia resident teacher, for the Museum’s current exhibition, FLOE: A Climate of Risk | The Fictional Archaeology of Stephen Talasnik. FLOE tells the story of a fictitious shipwreck carried to Philadelphia by the glacier that buried it. As global temperatures warmed brought on by climate change, the glacier melted and surrendered the ship’s remains.
During this guided meditation, we will make space and explore how connecting with our natural state of inner peace will help us to better nurture ourselves, our communities, and our environment.
