While local museums are known for amazing art, great collections, and nifty gift shopping, occasionally they become places of solace and refuge. KMAC Contemporary Art Museum (715 W. Main St.) is leaning into creating a space for solace and giving weary shoppers and those who just need a break from the holiday season a place to relax. 

In conjunction with Louisville's Passionist Earth & Spirit Center, KMAC will offer two free 45-minute guided meditation sessions. These sessions will be led by Joe Mitchell, CP, and Kyle Kramer, CEO of the Passionist Earth & Spirit Center. These sessions will be held on Monday, Dec. 4, and the following Monday, Dec. 11. 

“Holidays are the best of times, worst of times,” says Kyle Kramer, the CEO of the Earth & Spirit Center in an email.  “They’re a chance to celebrate and rest with friends and family, but they can also be overbusy, and they can bring up the pain of difficult relationships or griefs.  Mindfulness and meditation practices offer helpful tools to navigate the challenges of the holidays while being fully present to savor all their wonderful gifts.  The Earth & Spirit Center wants to put those tools in the hands of as many people as possible.”

Intended as an intentional holiday de-stress, these sessions are open to everyone and can be completed within the span of a lunch hour, lasting from noon - 12:45 p.m. each session. Registration is encouraged but not required.

The mission of the Passionist Earth & Spirit Center is to “cultivate transformative learning and service opportunities dedicated to mindful awakening, compassionate justice, and care for the Earth.”
