Novo Dia and MCASD present Mornings at the Museum, a bi-monthly wellness and art experience. Each edition of Mornings at the Museum will focus on a different theme, and this edition is all about Empathy & Self-Love.

Together, we will explore the museum’s breathtaking views, mind-expanding art exhibitions, and innovative architecture, all while participating in an environment of personal growth experiences.

Uncover the Power of Empathy:

Connect with a diverse community of kindred spirits as we explore the incredible power of empathy. Engage in interactive workshops that will deepen your understanding of empathy, foster compassionate connections, and empower you to make a positive impact in the world around you.

Nurturing Self-Love:

Embrace the beauty of self-love as we guide you through immersive practices and inspiring sessions that celebrate your unique journey. Discover techniques to enhance your self-care routine, embrace self-compassion, and unlock your true potential. Our instructors will offer guidance to help you cultivate a deeper sense of self-worth and ignite a loving relationship with yourself.

Meditation Room:

Connect with your inner self in our fully designed, deep relaxation-focused, ocean-facing meditation room. Our minimalistic and calming ambient design is intended to let you focus on yourself, while letting the background music guide you into a meditative state of mind where you can explore the wonders of your spirit and soul.

*Any ticket holder can access our meditation room. It will be open from 8:45AM – 12:00PM

**Limited capacity** - Please note that there is a limited number of spaces available to meditate. If the room is full, please just add your name to the waitlist.
