Still contemplation is your greatest entertainment value — and the “Mindful Awareness” lecture at the Hammer Museum is yet another way to open your mind, relax and live purely in the moment. Through Mindful Awareness, you'll observe and consider your physical, mental and emotional experiences as they occur to you. It's less OCD than EST, less intense than Synanon, and a lot less taxing than rolfing. It's also more focused, calming and stress-reducing. Drop in as you drop out with UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center Director of Mindfulness Diana Winston, and Dr. Marvin Belzer, visiting professor from Bowling Green and UCLA's In-Resident Mindfulness Teacher. I'll bet you didn't know they had such things. No special clothing is required, claim the experts — so leave behind those knee pads and crash helmets! You just sit there and think about what you've done!
