IMCW > Community


Seeking connection, community and support for your practice? IMCW's new Center for Mindful Living in Tenleytown offers space for classes and meetings. We offer affinity groups for People of Color, LGBTQ, women and singles for dharma study and social opportunities.

Browse the neighborhood Sitting Groups for quiet meditation or Spiritual Friends (KM) groups for meditation and discussion. Families may want to consider IMCW's monthly Family Meditation Classes. We also offer a growing teen program.

Subscribe to our Off the Cushion weekly social events newsletter, where sangha members connect with each other OFF the cushion!


The expression of a developing spiritual path is engaged action. In action we practice all aspects of the Buddha's core teachings of the Eightfold Path. IMCW supports several paths of engaged practice.

Spiritual Activism allows you to apply the insights you are gaining from your practice to social justice and environmental issues while you create new friendships.

Consider our volunteer opportunities, as a way to get involved and meet people as you give back to the community.
