From September 10-15, The Bentway brings the Moon under the Gardiner with a presentation of Museum of the Moon – a seven-metre wide touring sculptural work by UK artist Luke Jerram, which fuses lunar imagery to bring the moon’s surface to life on earth. The installation allows visitors to experience the moon up-close and personal, reminding us of the moon’s influence on our daily lives despite urban barriers like light pollution and high-rise density. Visitors will be able to further reflect on the moon through moon gazing and moonlight meditation, turning The Bentway into an open air planetarium.
The Consciousness Explorers Club will be guiding nightly moonlight meditation sessions during the installation! Each night a different CEC teacher will lead complementary practices at 7:30pm and 9pm.
Tuesday, September 10 – Erin Oke
Wednesday, September 11 – Stephanie DeBou
Thursday, September 12 – James Maskalyk
Friday, September 13 – Oliver Rabba
Sunday, September 15 – Erin Oke
Other activities taking place throughout the moon-filled week include an immersive multi-channel soundtrack – including a self-guided meditation recorded by CEC’s Jeff Warren! Also free astronomy talks, Undercurrents – a photo-based installation, and a Moon Merge event on September 14.
Join us at The Bentway to meditate with the Moon!
