City Meditation Crew
in Hamlin Park Saturday
Meditation, the practice of focusing solely on the present moment and pushing the clutter of the mind aside, appears to have an increasing number of health benefits.

Anne Beffel, professor of visual and performing arts at Michigan Tech and director of the Studio Here Now, intentionally looks for ways to create space for mindfulness within public art.

Beffel will lead a guided walk with performance art group City Meditation Crew on Saturday August 11, 2018 at Hamlin Park in Shoreline.

“Meditation Circuit is a series of meditation stations along a pathway marked by public art work,” Beffel says.  
“Each station offers a mindfulness-oriented activity intended to support well-being. Meditation Circuits demonstrate the power of meditation and the value of public art.”

Beffel was in Shoreline last year, leading a meditation and photography walk called Many Shades of Green which she created for David Francis, Public Art Coordinator for Shoreline.

Members of the nationally-recognized performance art group “City Meditation Crew” (CMC) will lead two 45-minute walks in the urban forest of Hamlin Park in Shoreline on Saturday, August 11 (2:30 – 3:15pm and 3:30 – 4:15pm, immediately followed by a reception); rain date August 12.

An RSVP is requested through advanced registration with the Shoreline Walks Program (, 206-801-2638).

The hike is short but there are several steep inclines. The meeting point is at the park’s east side parking lot entrance on the SW corner of 25th Ave NE and NE 160th St in Shoreline 98155.
