Awakening hearts and minds through direct experience of the Buddhist path.


IMCW's teaching collective--now numbering over 50--offers a range of meditation classes, workshops and retreats throughout the Washington, DC metro area. These trainings in Insight (Vipassana or mindfulness) meditation cultivate our natural wisdom and compassion. The teachings and practices, along with offerings that nourish and serve our larger community, lay the grounds for bridging separation and bringing healing to our earth.

We invite you to join IMCW at local classes and events, and to explore our online presence where you'll find talks, resources and fellowship in a community that spans the globe.
