Tuesday, May 15

12:00 PM–1:00 PM


The Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) seeks to foster well-being and connection in our community by offering programs where participants can experience traditions of all kinds. Please join us on Tuesdays at lunchtime for Mindfulness @ ICA, guided by experienced meditation teachers from the Richmond community. Mindfulness meditation is a way of giving “kind attention” to our experience in the here and now.

The guided meditation with discussion following, is offered on the first and third Tuesday of the month from 12–1 pm in the ICA Auditorium. Doors open at 11:45 am. All participants can check in at our Welcome Desk.

Mindfulness @ ICA is sponsored by the Institute of Contemporary Art and the College Behavioral and Emotional Health Institute (COBE), both at Virginia Commonwealth University.
