Vital Nutrition Meditation

“Meditation,” a painting by Gunjan Laborde, will be part of a show of Ms. Laborde’s work at Vital Nutrition in Falmouth. A reception for this show October 19 will feature a guided meditation.

The public is invited to an opening reception of Gunjan Laborde’s newest exhibit, “Chakra Meditations,” from 3 to 5 PM Saturday, October 19. As part of the reception, Ms. Laborde will lead attendees in a guided meditation at 4 PM.

“Chakra Meditations” draws from one of Ms. Laborde’s lifelong passions, yoga, to create another of her passions, art. Her mostly abstract oil paintings utilize color, symbol and motion to portray the chakras, or energy centers, in the body. Yoga and meditation help to balance these energy centers.

Ms. Laborde offers an interactive opportunity to discover more about the chakras by both viewing her paintings and through the experience of guided meditation.

As a student Gunjan Laborde studied painting and other arts and crafts. She learned to weave during one of her work-study jobs at a folk school in North Carolina. In France she continued her study of painting. Graduating from Antioch College with a major in design, she moved to France, married a Frenchman and had several exhibits of her paintings in Paris. For 10 years she lived in France, North Africa and England. Returning to the United States, she developed her own style of weaving and painting wall hangings. In 1997 she began oil painting again. Since then her work has been shown in galleries on Cape Cod, her current home.

Ms. Laborde has been practicing and teaching yoga for more than 50 years. She has studied with Iyengar, Desikachar, Angela Farmer and Kali Ray.

View “Chakra Meditations” through October at Vital Nutrition, 358 Gifford Street, Falmouth.
