Building Resilience with the Community Mindfulness Project @ The Aldrich @ The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum
Aug 21 @ 1:00 pm – Sep 30 @ 1:30 pm

Did you know you have superpowers? Join the Community Mindfulness Project (CMP) and Education Assistant Lorena Sferlazza outdoors in the Museum’s Sculpture Garden with your kids and loved ones to learn ways we can build RESILIENCE, through guided meditation inspired by current exhibition Lucia Hierro: Marginal Costs! Perfect for families with children of all ages.

The Aldrich has partnered with the Community Mindfulness Project (CMP) for this family program series around our free Third Weekends. The series is inspired by the Museum’s current exhibitions and offered to nurture the growth and healing of our local community. CMP was formed in 2014 to offer a variety of science-based mindfulness and heart-opening practices to support physical, psychological, emotional, and social well-being. With an emphasis on community, CMP offers secular group meditations in libraries, wellness centers, and other community hubs, with weekly sessions free and open to the public for all ages, experience levels, and abilities.
