Museums and galleries across the UK are subject to temporary closures. Those that remain open have safety measures in place, please remember to check venue guidelines before visiting.

Building on the successful 'Meditation at the Museum' sessions, this is a very special opportunity to join Mima Cornish as she leads a meditation session in the presence of the Museum of the Moon installation.

Drawing on the energies of Norton Priory, and with the moon suspended in the museum atrium, start the day in the most peaceful of ways.

The two sessions will both have different areas of focus, for this rare opportunity to meditate in the heart of Norton Priory's museum building, in front of the medieval Undercroft and in the presence of the Museum of the Moon art installation.

The meditations will be guided, and any mindful activities will be gentle and relaxing, promoting a natural sense of peace. Suitable for all levels from beginners to experienced.

These sessions take place before the building opens to the general public for the day.

Please note that tickets for the event do not include access to the museum and grounds as a day visitor.
