Nothingness is Impossible: A Musical Death Awareness Meditation

March 23 @ 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

$15 – $20
Join 2023-2024 Artist-in-Residence, Eden Rayz (she/her), and end-of-life support person Madelaine Ripley (they/them) for a musical death awareness meditation centered around the concept of “nothingness.”

The experience will begin with a brief explanation of the history and cultural significance of death awareness meditations then shift to a guided group meditation. Eden will perform with part of her new instrument, argent & sable (created for her Artist residency), while Ripley guides guests through a nonreligious meditation with English spoken word.

Meditators are encouraged to bring yoga mats, pillows, and blankets to use during the meditation. The event will take place in Story Chapel with plenty of room to spread out on the carpeted floor. We will also have chairs for those who prefer to sit.

Event Capacity: 40 people
