  • Learn Mindfulness Meditation for Anxiety and Depression

    Interested in exploring a different way of being and living in the world instead of your head? Join the innovative class at MBCT Austin to learn how to be mindful in your daily life and respond to your feelings rather than react to them. You'll learn a unique approach to mindfulness meditation, a practice which has been scientifically proven to change brain chemistry and neuronal structure permanently for the better. The course includes eight (8) classes from 7:00-9:00p.m. on Wednesdays and a half day Saturday retreat. Next course begins April 24th.

      Collection Rert: Tears and Laughter They Know About

      This June marks the 50th anniversary of Judy Garland's death – and also of the Stonewall Rebellion. Queer lore has it that Garland's demise was a catalyst that pushed the events of that night into the riots they became. Now multimedia artist Silky Shoemaker has returned to Austin to create a personal homage to one of her many idols, honoring the actress with a room-filling shrine in the gallery of Collection Rert.
