IMCW Center for Mindful Living
Classes, meditation, dharma
In September 2012 IMCW opened the Center for Mindful Living
, a space in the Washington metro area dedicated to Buddhist teachings, the practice of meditation, and the exploration of the many ways we can bring deeper presence and awareness into our lives. The space has been beautifully developed and provides a sanctuary for stillness and inner exploration in the heart of our metropolitan area.
The CML is located at 4708 Wisconsin Avenue, NW
, three blocks north of Tenleytown Redline Metro station. It is easily accessible by Metro, bus, or car from many parts of Maryland, northern Virginia, and the District.
IMCW and affiliated mindfulness classes currently being offered
or planned include:
- Daily meditation—currently offered in the mornings but soon to include evenings and weekends
- Open sit
- Classes for experienced students
- Introduction to meditation
- Deepening dharma study and practice
- Weekly meditation
- Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR)
- Sutta study
Other activities at the CML include mindful yoga classes and trainings, and meetings on bringing mindfulness into schools, prisons, and work with military veterans in our area.
If you are interested in offering a class — or would like to see a particular class or workshop at the CML — two spaces are available: one room holds 35-40 people, the other 15-20. There is also an office available for rent on a daily or hourly basis.
We look forward to seeing you there. For more information, please see the Center for Mindful Living website, or contact the CML coordinators.
