Not knowing exactly what to expect, before you go, is the key to experiencing mother nature, as you haven't experienced previously. Being prepared with a yoga mat, blanket and pillow is the key to getting the most from the experience. Skyspace is free although donations...More

We visited Skyspace not quite knowing what to expect. What we found was a quiet beautiful location to meditate with others and I came to appreciate further God's general revelation - how much bigger and more creative and special He is.

Beautiful, relaxing, thought-provoking, evocative, and a little chilly. It was a wonderful Valentine's Day experience to share. Photos and phones are not allowed, although as Friends the monitors are very unobtrusive, so please respect other this rule. Well worth turning off for an hour.

If experiencing quiet beauty in a restful position for almost an hour sounds heavenly to you, this art installation should not be missed. Blissful.

We went to the lovely chestnut hill meeting house for the Greet the Light exhibit last night. It was an incredible experience to lie on the floor and watch the colors from the sunset and led lights change, fade and glow. A meditative and spiritual...More

First of all, I enjoyed how this space and experience was introduced by the facilitator: very low key and welcoming. It's possibly like nothing you've ever seen before. A lovely newer building, still a Quaker meeting house, designed by a Quaker architect who clearly is...More
