Join breathwork facilitator Chauna Bryant and Roksana Filipowska, Wurtele Study Center Programs and Outreach Manager, for a mindful experience focusing on Kyoko Tonegawa’s Primeval Breath (ca. 1988) in the Margaret and Angus Wurtele Study Center. Through gentle breathing exercises and close looking at objects, this virtual program weaves together art museum pedagogy with cues to cultivate a sense of calm and alertness. Breathwork is an active meditation that quiets the busy mind and creates a deeper connection with the body. No prior experience of breathwork is necessary. Generously sponsored by the Martin A. Ryerson Fund.
