Date & Time

225 days ago


Upper East Side


The Big Quiet returns to New York City for a mass meditation experience inside the Guggenheim Museum. Seated at the base of the museum’s famous cylindrical rotunda, The Big Quiet will take you through a series of breathing exercises, crowd-powered vocal toning, a mass sound meditation, special guest musical performances, and break-out conversations to get to know the NYC community. The Big Quiet is in celebration of the Guggenheim’s 60th anniversary of being a “temple of spirit,” where radical art and architecture meet.

All attendees will be gifted an exclusive take-home Tuft & Needle meditation cushion, kombucha from GT’s Kombucha, essential oils from Saje, Antioxidant water from smartwater and the opportunity to try out the Muse meditation headband.

A portion of each ticket sale will support The Big Quiet’s two giveback partners: Kula for Karma in bringing therapeutic meditation to people suffering from trauma, addiction and adverse life circumstances; and Chooose in fighting climate change by reducing the carbon footprint of the event.
