A Metta Musical Journey

February 4 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$10 – $25

Tickets for this performance can be purchased through the Museum of Discovery.

Join guitar improvisator, Jeff LaQuatra and University of Northern Colorado anthropologist and meditation teacher, Michael Kimball, in the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery’s Dome Theatre for a 360-degree “Metta Musical Journey.” Neuroscience is showing us that our idea of who we are—our “self”—is a useful construct, but one that can sometimes hinder more than help us.

Indeed, contemplative practitioners have been making this discovery for millennia. Buddhism’s 2600-year-old Karaniya Metta Sutta (teaching), for example, reveals a meditation practice aimed at dissolving the boundary between “self” and “other” to conquer fear and restore connection with the world. “A Metta Musical Journey” will feature a short talk on relations between neuroscience and metta meditation followed by a program featuring improvisational guitar music, Dome Theatre imagery, and a guided metta meditation.

A reception with a wine bar and South Asian hors d’oeuvres will welcome participants following the event.
