Discover tranquility and connection at Oasis, a mindfulness-centered experience held on the third Saturday of each month.

Oasis offers a sanctuary for those seeking both solace and community amid the High’s world-class art. Embark on a journey of self-discovery through activities designed to promote mental well-being. Immerse yourself in movement-based sessions led by local yoga instructors, unwind with soothing sonic experiences, or unleash your creative expression in art-making activities led by teaching artists. In our Seeing with Spirit dialogue series, engage in thoughtful conversations exploring the intersection of art and spirituality.

Join us at the High and experience Oasis—an unparalleled blend of art, reflection, and connection, where every moment invites you to embrace the power of the present.

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.

Join the conversation at 12:00 and 1:00 p.m.

Labyrinth

This labyrinth, designed by artist Steven L. Anderson, may look like a maze, but it is not meant to confuse or frustrate you. The labyrinth is a nearly 4,000-year-old design that has been found in a variety of forms and cultures. We invite you to use this labyrinth for walking meditation and contemplation.
