How Meditation Shapes our Social Sculpture

Everyday we have the choice to create the energy that we put out in the workplace. This energy we create is known as Social Sculpture. “Social sculpture is a theory developed by the artist Joseph Beuys in the 1970s based on the concept that everything is art, that every aspect of life could be approached creatively and, as a result, everyone has the potential to be an artist.” Our energy is always with us, and affects those around us. As such, the energy you contribute is just as important as the work that you contribute.

Take a respite from the busy week and join us for a 30 minute meditation and discussion. We will be joined by our partners at Kadampa Meditation Center to explore how meditation can improve your well-being and work environment.
