Location: High Museum of Art
Embrace the present moment during Oasis at the High.
On the second Friday of each month, flow in yoga, practice art making, and reflect deeply with works of art. Enjoy zero-proof beverages or sip a glass of wine. Come to the Museum after hours and cultivate a community centered on art, presence, and contemplative practice.
Slow down during one of six beginner-friendly yoga sessions. Classes will be held throughout the evening in the Museum’s Robinson Atrium, Anne Cox Chambers Wing Lobby, and Orkin Terrace. Sessions will be led by LGBTQ+ identifying certified yoga instructors Nick Combs (Atrium 6:30 p.m.), Whitney Woodruff (Atrium 7:30 p.m.), Brandé Elise (ACC 6:30 and 7:30 p.m.), and Paula Braun (Terrace 6:30 and 7:30 p.m.).
Please note: Registration for yoga is required.

This month: Collage Making
Seeing with Spirit
Join us for a casual, thoughtful conversation connecting art and spiritual practice.
Each month, a faith, spiritual, or contemplative practitioner joins a High staff member in a conversation centered on a work of art and the ways it invites deeper reflection into their contemplative practice.
This month’s discussion will feature Paul Root Wolpe, who works at Emory University as the Raymond F. Schinazi Distinguished Research Chair in Jewish Bioethics; professor of medicine, pediatrics, psychiatry, neuroscience, and sociology; and director of the Center for Ethics.
Join the conversation at 7 and 8:15 p.m.
In Gallery Music
Immerse yourself in peaceful sounds as you rediscover our Modern and Contemporary Art gallery. This month we will be joined by Danielle Hall, founder and CEO of SoundEmbrace. Currently working on her doctoral dissertation in psychology and holistic health counseling, Danielle has a Master in Metaphysical Science and a certification in sound healing therapy and works with hospitals, corporate wellness programs, therapy centers, and nonprofits.
Drop-in sessions will begin at 6:20 p.m. and start again every fifteen minutes with five-minute breaks in between.
