CAFÉ CONVERSATIONS WITH SIRIPONG MALASRI, Ph.D
02/19/2020, 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM
Memphis Brooks Museum of Art | Free. map
You might not expect it, but the museum offers the same reprieve as meditation from the stress of daily life. For this Café Conversation, Dr. Siripong “Pong” Malasri, Dean of Gadomski School of Engineering at Christian Brothers University, will share his experiences in meditation, including breathing techniques, energy circulation, and chakra balancing, as we discuss the benefits of both art and mindfulness. After a brief overview of meditation, Dr. Malasri will lead patrons on a site-specific guided meditation in the galleries.
Dr. Malasri has practiced various forms of meditation, from sitting meditation to moving meditation such as Tai Chi and Qigong, since 1991. He has learned various techniques from Buddhist monks and lay masters. Currently, he offers a free meditation session every Saturday at his residence in Cordova, TN. Bring a friend, grab a cup of tea and join in. Café Conversations are not the same without you!
