Toward the Texture of Knowing  

January 2020

January 24, February 28, and March 20, 2020, noon to 1 p.m. (Please note the February 21 session had to be canceled and rescheduled for February 28) Mindfulness Meditation Session with Larry Birkett 

Reserve your spot with Eventbrite here

In this Mindfulness Meditation series we will use artworks featured in Toward the Texture of Knowing and other artworks on view as the objects of our meditation. We will explore the connection between mindfulness meditation and creativity. In Toward the Texture of Knowing the featured artists have created works through “wakeful attention to common experiences”. Ultimately the practice of meditation teaches us how to ground our experience in a non-reactive space. In this non-reactive, core space, we can learn to live more creatively with conditionality.

These mindfulness meditation sessions in the Haggerty’s galleries will be led by Larry Birkett, who has been consistently practicing Buddhist/mindfulness meditation since 2010. In 2013, Larry became involved in teaching mindfulness meditation and yoga to prison inmates. He also regularly teaches mindfulness meditation to faculty, staff and students at Marquette University (where he serves as Associate Director of the Marquette Spirit Shop).

Wednesday, January 29, 2020, noon to 1 p.m.
Soup with Substance
Talk, Jamie Lynn Tatera from Wholly Mindful 

In conjunction with the exhibition Toward the Texture of Knowing, this experiential mindfulness lecture will invite you beyond the thought track of your mind into the experience of being fully alive. So often we walk through our days, minds occupied by tasks undone and schedules to be arranged. All the while meaningful moments and points of impact pass by unobserved. Mindfulness beckons us to come into contact with the texture of our body, emotions and sensory experiences, so that we can attune and connect with ourselves and the wider world.

Jamie Lynn Tatera is an educator, author and curriculum designer. Her classes and curriculum creatively integrate the science and practices of mindfulness, self-compassion, emotional intelligence and positive neuroplasticity. Her mindfulness training is extensive, and she teaches in a variety of settings ranging from kindergarten classrooms to college campuses.

Inspired by the round table discussions of Peter Maurin and the Catholic Worker Movement, Soup with Substance is a noon-time series of presentations on contemporary issues related to peacemaking and social justice. Soup with Substance is open to the public and a simple meal of soup and bread is provided at each presentation. The program is sponsored by the Center for Peacemaking, Campus Ministry, and the Center for Intercultural Engagement.
