What is Meditation Circuit?
Meditation Circuit was a temporary public art work comprised of a series of meditation stations along a pathway marked by ten foot tall hand painted banners.
Each station offered a mindfulness oriented activity intended to support well-being.
Park visitors explored: listening; walking; even using cell phones as tools for meditating on colors in an urban forest.
are intended to demonstrate the power of meditation and the value of public art.
Meditation Circuit launched with City Meditation Crew on
August 11, 2018 at Hamlin Park and was de-installed in
July of 2019.
City Meditation Crew, and guest artist and facilitation leader Anne Beffel, and Shoreline, WA community members experimented with several kinds of mindfulness meditation and contemplative practice.
Meditation Circuit was designed by artist and meditation facilitator Anne Beffel who trained at UCLA's Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior. It launched in partnership with City Meditation Crew and Shoreline Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services' Public Arts Coordinator David Francis, Michigan Technological University, and the Shoreline Walks Program.
