Mindful : February 2015
FUN FACT Art and Mind A gallery in Washington, DC, is encouraging visitors to take a mindful view of classic ar t work. Designed in par tnership with a yoga therapist and instructor, the Phillips’ Collection’s new exhibition, “Slow Moving and Mindful Viewing,” walks you through the gal- lery with a cell phone audio guide that, rather than listing historical or techni- cal facts, connects you with your body, breath, and the beauty to behold. From court to cushion New president of the New York Knicks, long- time meditator, and basketball coach Phil Jackson is bringing mind training to the cour t once again. As he did with the Lakers and the Bulls, he’s asked mindfulness teacher George Mumford to work with the team. 3Extra ordinary Acts of Kindness When Phil Laboon’s wed- ding was called off, he didn’t wal- low in misery—he turned his recep- tion into a charity ball to provide surgery for chil- dren in develop- ing countries.

Low-income clinic offers meditation The Catherine M. Abate Health Center, a medi- cal clinic ser ving low-income and uninsured New Yorkers on Man- hat tan’s Lower East Side, launched a wellness program to supplement its clinical offer- ings, providing meditation and yoga instruction as well as holistic medicine. As we get older, it often feels like time moves faster and faster. But it doesn’t have to: Scientific evidence shows mind- fulness slows the perception of time pass- ing. It turns out the more we pay attention to what’s happening around us, the slower time seems to slip past. Mindfulness hits urbandictionary.com You know mindfulness is hitting its stride when it earns a spot on urbandictionary.com, the most compre- hensive (and vulgar) lexicon of slang. Its definition, which begins with “paying at tention to the downright f**king obvi- ous,” may not be spot on, but it’s a star t. On the go Need something to do on your layover? Most airports now offer non-denomina- tional chapels: peaceful, silent spaces where you can take a few minutes, medi- tate, and work through some of that flight anxiety you’re about to encounter. ● February 2015 mindful 11 PHOTOGRAPHS:PETESOUZA,COLOURBOX.COM,©GRAYWALLSTUDIO,©BIGLAMA,©AFRICASTUDIO,©SKARIN/DOLLARPHOTOCLUB,JOESHLABOTNIK
