I Meditate NY has created an urban meditation series for the BMW Guggenheim Lab to be held every Saturday at 10 am from August 6 until October 15. This series introduces meditation to empower participants to contemplate what “comfort” means to them. It provides a technique for examining the inner environment to enhance the outer environment. Sessions aim to challenge comfort zones and provide a tool to create sustainable comfort: comfort that comes from within and goes with you. Each session includes an introduction to meditation.

A razor, a shiny knife is a culinary performance group that creates educational, social, and theatrical experiences around the world. Join them at the Lab for a conversation about a luxury the developed world takes for granted—water. Learn about modern culinary techniques and ingredients that work through the manipulation of water. These ingredients will be used to create metaphorical examples of water scarcity and potability around the world, comparing countries, cities, and even districts across the same city.
