Daily Practice

Onwards Inwards

The element of meditation started during the exhibition of Jenna Tas with a metta meditation on 21st November 2019 guided by Coby van Herk. Due to Covid-19 it wasn’t possible to organize more meditations in space. With the exhibition of Moosje M Goosen end of March 2020 the element of online silence meditation was introduced, every Wednesday between 13.00-13.30hrs. This is still going on and is titled Onwards Inwards since 1st July 2020, referring partly to the title of Moosje M Goosen’s exhibition ‘On Wards’.

This silence meditation is not guided and therefore for meditators who at least have received an introduction to meditation. If you are interested to participate, please send an email. 15 minutes before the meditation starts you will receive a link, at this moment via jitsi, to join. You are not obliged to be present every week.

How it goes: at 1 pm there is one tinkle with the bell to start the meditation. At 1.30 pm I tinkle three times. The meditation is over. In general everyone logs out immediately, back to work, life, art. You can consider it a break and silent reflection in the middle of the week with a number of people who wish to practice the same.

Please send an email if you’re interested or have any questions.

Together with Moosje M Goosen Daily Practice participates in 84 Steps on the 3rd floor of Kunstinstituut Melly in Rotterdam. Goosen’s text work On Wards is on show, Daily Practice (Suzanne Weenink) has designed a wooden meditation floor titled Inwards which has been translated to a physical beautiful floor by Studio Bart Stoffijn.
