Mindfulness: Finding Balance In The Gallery
Eastern philosophies and religious traditions such as Tibetan Buddhism, the mind and body’s relationship to consciousness, and the fundamental structures of healing in the natural and human worlds underpin INDUCTION. Weaving sound, touch, and image in a low-lit, deep blue space, INDUCTION encourages awareness of the relationship and balance between body, mind, and spirit. MOCA is offering a series of Saturday morning classes led by area experts designed to support these reflective experiences and build mindfulness.

Community Acupuncture
Join Acupuncture First Founder, Karen Mastrangelo as she leads this unique Acupuncture session, a communal experience of stimulating various parts of the body through the insertion of thin needles through the skin. Acupuncture is recognized by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the World Health Organization (WHO) to be effective in the treatment of a wide variety of medical problems.
