Introduction to Meditation
Taking inspiration from the UMMA exhibition Buddhist Thangkas and Treasures: The Walter Koelz Collection, Museum of Anthropology (on view February 23 through June 9, 2013), which features these colorful and fascinating paintings often used in Buddhist religious practice, Jewel Heart of Ann Arbor invites you to come enjoy a hands-on session of guided meditation, including healing visualization techniques.
We invite you to experience first-hand the living tradition presented in this exhibition with a meditation session. No prior experience with meditation or familiarity with Buddhism is required.
This program is offered by Jewel Heart, the Ann Arbor headquarters of the Tibetan Buddhist organization founded by Gelek Rimpoche. Another session will be offered on Tuesday, May 7 at 5:30 pm. For more information, please visit http://www.jewelheart.org/ or call Jewel Heart at (734) 994-3387.
