Practice is offered twice a day, at noon and at 6pm.
Join Arts + Public Life/Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture Artist-in-Residence Lauren Ash for an hour-long practice of Seva and mindfulness. Seva (say-va) is a Sanskrit word representing the act of selfless service. Lauren will offer Seva practice at the Arts Incubator on the second Tuesday of every month. All those who join will create and engage in meaningful exchange. Attendees will also cultivate mindfulness through movement, meditation, and guided activity. Seva events are free and open to the public. Space is extremely limited; arrive early. Please wear clothes that are comfortable for movement.
