    There is a lot to do and see in our neighborhood and Midtown Atlanta. How lucky we are to live in Ansley Park! However, we thought it might be nice to take things down a notch with an introduction to mindfulness meditation.

    Mindfulness is “being in the Present Moment, with openness, curiosity and the willingness to be with what is.” Mindfulness is being aware of our thoughts, actions, reactions, experiences and having tools that can enrich the quality of our lives, help us discern more clearly, improve our relationships and overall well-being.

    This session is open to anyone with an interest in or curiosity about meditation. It will be led by Ana Maria Lagasca. She will lay out the basic principles of mindfulness, facilitate mindfulness & meditation practices & support you in applying the principles to your daily life. The goal is also to help you build resources within yourself to minimize feelings of stress, thought overload and meet each day with joy & wise awareness.

    Ana Maria has a Mindfulness Facilitation Certification from the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior and has been facilitating meditation sessions at various nearby universities. She has also been teaching yoga for the last 17 years. Read more about her background and practice: www.MindfulWellnessGuide.com

    Note: Registration costs $15 for APCA members and $20 for non-members. You MUST log into the website in order to register for events at the APCA Member reduced rate.  If you have questions, contact specialevents@ansleypark.org.

    • 5:00 PM - 9:00 PM
    • The Dell, please enter on Park Lane side of the Dell

    Art has the power to communicate through, and to, all of our senses. This sensory landscape experience will go beyond verbal language and tap into other senses in hopes to create attention and presence within the body. This project's idea is to transcend the known world of spoken language and written rules. Scent, touch, sound, movement, and visuals will tap into the psyche. These bodily sensations will take you out of your head and into your body, while you pay attention to your movements, senses, feelings, and the present.

    This experience will take place outside the gallery/museum walls with seven participating artists. Having this exhibit in nature juxtaposed by the city will examine our circadian rhythms and our economy of consumption.

    Organized by Birney Robert. Birney is an employee at Georgia Tech in the Communications office. While working full-time, she is pursuing a Master’s in Applied Linguistics from GSU. Her undergraduate work was in studio art at Birmingham-Southern College. Her passion is to curate thought provoking art events/exhibits that invoke a strong sense of being and presence in this world. Her method is heavily interdisciplinary, combining linguistics, cognition, art, and philosophy.

    Please contact Birney Robert birneylrobert@gmail.com with any questions.
