Atlanta Contemporary presents Meditation Mondays

Starting on Monday, May 11th (and every 2nd Monday of the month going forward), Atlanta Contemporary will host a session of mindfulness-based activities to inspire awareness, creativity, and healing for everyone. “As within, so without,” goes the saying, and during a time of heightened collective stress, anxiety, and fear, Atlanta Contemporary strives to be a beacon of hope and inspiration. We are partnering with meditation instructors, artists, sound-healers, and more, to support the community in a healthy and insightful way. We hope that your hearts will be open to receiving these gifts and that you may ease into a brighter future. And, if you know someone who may benefit from these sessions, please do not hesitate to share the love.

This Monday, May 11th, join Hannah Joy as she leads participants in a guided meditation of Anapana— observing the respiration— followed by a question and answer session/discussion on the benefits of meditation. Hannah is a meditator of the Vipassana technique, and teaches the foundation of the technique, Anapana, to those who are willing to receive this seed. She began meditating 3 years ago and dwelled within the monastic setting of the Southeast Vipassana Center in Jesup, GA, both volunteering and growing her practice. Since experiencing the immense benefits of a daily meditative practice, she is continuously inspired to share this  life-changing technique with others.

Bio

Hannah Joy

Hannah is an artist of Indian heritage based in Atlanta, GA. She aims to inspire healing through self awareness via her meditative practice and artistic creations. Hannah practices Vipassana meditation, which is the cultivation of “seeing reality as it is,” and she teaches the stepping stone to Vipassana, called Anapana (observation of respiration) to those who are open to receiving this seed. Her artistic body is inspired by her flame of self-awareness developed in meditation with notes of her Indian heritage. She typically utilizes ink on paper and mixed media in a process-focused style of working; i.e. prioritizing the creative experience rather than a specific outcome. Hannah was born in Florida in 1992. Her family soon moved to the Caribbean island of Trinidad, where she spent most of her childhood. After returning to the U.S. in 2005, she graduated from the University of South Florida, with studies emphasizing Psychology and Behavioral Healthcare. She served in the healthcare sector for some time before seeking spiritual refuge within the monastic setting of the Southeast Vipassana Center in Jesup, GA for about a year. Currently, as Hannah transitions back to a householder lifestyle within society, she hopes to share both her creative and meditative processes with humanity through the lens of hope and healing.
