Esther GokhalePop-up Meditation: Posture and
Saturday, June 30
10:30 AM–12 PM
Esther Gokhale, the “Posture Guru of Silicon Valley,” guides us in using the works on view in Divine Bodies to reset our shoulders, elongate our spines and restore our natural, pain-free architecture. The artworks in the exhibition show us older, wiser way of using our bodies. For modern viewers, surrounded as we are by distorted, hunched postures, the healthful Buddha figures and poised sculptures of Hindu gods provide welcome inducements to improve ourselves. Research has shown our species to be natural mimics; ancient art gives us something better to strive toward.
