Wherever you meditate—whether it’s at home, in a drop-in studio, or even, say, Central Park—you’re probably not anywhere near a million-dollar Monet. But for New Yorkers, that art lover’s fantasy is now becoming a reality, thanks to a weekly meditation series at New York’s Museum of Modern Art.

Every Wednesday morning in October, the museum is teaming up with Flavorpill for Quiet Mornings, a mindfulness-plus-art series hosted by various yoga and meditation gurus like Elena Brower, Biet Simkin, and Keith Mitchell, a former All Pro football player who has used yoga and meditation to help him recover from a spinal injury.

Attendees will be able to stroll through MoMA’s permanent collection of masterpieces without the crowds, and then participate in a group meditation in the gorgeous atrium overlooking the museum’s Sculpture Garden.

“The Museum of Modern Art has had a long history of events aimed at helping busy New Yorkers slow down,” adds Maggie Lyko, director, special events and affiliate programs at MoMA, who says Quiet Mornings will “give MoMA guests a peaceful moment with the works of art they love and hopefully leave our galleries centered and inspired.”

Sascha Lewis, co-founder and CEO of Flavorpill, adds: “As event producers and publishers, Flavorpill has always been fascinated by the intersection of personal development and culture—our Quiet Mornings collab with MoMA is the perfect real-world version of this intersection, come to life.”

The hardest part? Keeping your eyes closed.

Quiet Mornings, Museum of Modern Art, 11 West 53rd St., New York, NY, 10019, (212) 708-9400.
