Finding peace of mind is often easier said than done. The Rothko Chapel has a prepared a program to help.
The local nonprofit will be hosting Serbian Orthodox meditation guided by Father Serge Veselinovich, at noon on Wednesday, April 5. The Chapel is located at 3900 Yupon. The suggested donation to attend is $10.
Rooted in the concept of “hesychasm” – from the Greek word “hesychia” meaning “stillness of mind” – Orthodox meditation features a focus on posture, rhythmic breathing and recitation to seek mental stillness and union with the divine.
For 22 years, Father Veselinovich has been parish priest of Saints Constantine and Helen Serbian Orthodox Church in Galveston, the oldest Orthodox church in the state, officially consecrated in 1895.
