The Meditation Museum

Preserving our power in pure thinking.


This small unique museum invites visitors to enhance the quality of their thoughts, their lives and the world around them. The museum is specifically designed to bring us back to a knowledge of our true selves and our responsibility to humanity. Our hope is that everyone who experiences the museum finds his or her own authentic meaning for life.


The Meditation Museum will feature interactive displays and tailored training sessions providing tools of transformative power to help us realize our full potential as individuals.


The museum will host a series of conversations, guest presenters, dialogues and seminars. Courses will include meditation, stress management and practicing silence.


Visitors will be able to visualize and understand how our thoughts influence the external world through art ranging from pictures, posters, painting and sculpture to music, theater, dance and poetry. All activities support the original integrity of the human being, highlighting strength of character, power of mind and peace.


Four inaugural exhibitions on the journey of life are planned: The Confluence Age, Golden Age, Copper Age and Iron Age.


The Meditation Museum will open with an exhibition on the Confluence Age. An age of new beginning, it’s a powerful period featuring the contrasts in our lives as we choose what is best for now, while being mindful of how our decisions transcend into our future.


It is an age of higher thinking. Being aware of the force of the Confluence Age in offering conscious choice, allows us to recognize the immense strength that our thoughts hold in shaping our future. Exhibitions will be rotated every few months.


The space might be small but the purpose is grand. We trust you will enjoy your visit.

Endorsements....

- Harriet Fulbright

" My husband created an incredible international exchange program in order to promote peace throughout the world, through understanding, I do feel that meditation is something equally important when it comes to understanding others, because you have to stop, think, listen -- meditate helps you learn that. These pictures are just beautiful, this is a lovely space that you've created and I'm honored to be here."

-Annette Lantos - wife of the late congressman Lantos (both survivors of the Holocaust)

"I think meditation should be included as one of the basic human rights into the world system. If we sometimes set aside in businesses and government, in all the offices of the world for staff to be allowed 20 min during the day to do meditation, that would develop the best things to improve the world."

- Steven Lovink

"Is nice to find a place where things are silent, where you can find silence. Silence is like a drop hitting the water, causing many ripples. Hopefully the Meditation Museum will have this effect."

- Elizabeth Kucinich

"To be able to walk through a space, you don't have to sit in it, looking gently at the pictures, absorbing the messages through those pictures, you learn a story, you learn about yourself. When we can come into a space to reflect on our own inner peace then we can go out into the world and start manifesting it and help other people manifesting it."

We trust you will enjoy your visit.

OPENING EXHIBITION - The Confluence Age

The Confluence age is a time of new beginning. It is a powerful period of contrasts in our lives as we choose what is best for now, while being mindful of how our decisions transcend into our future. It is an age of higher thinking. Being aware of the force of the Confluence Age in offering conscious choice, allows us to recognize the immense strength that our thoughts hold in shaping our future.


The Meditation Museum is a small space but the purpose is grand.
