What to Expect at a Meditation Class

Create a space in your life for regular mediation practice. Insight meditation classes are offered weekly, biweekly or monthly by over 50 IMCW teachers in D.C., Maryland and northern Virginia. IMCW welcomes people from all walks of life. The IMCW sangha (community) is about working to create a Buddhist life of belonging, safety, and generosity towards each other—it’s about having a spiritual home.

Walking Meditation

Meditation is a practice of presence that you can bring alive in all settings and activities. The formal training in walking meditation can be particularly valuable for helping you to cultivate an awareness of your embodied experience in each moment, allowing you to bring your body, heart, and mind together as you move through life.

Tenleytown Family Class moving; New Middle School Program Starting

Starting in March, the Children & Family Class is moving from Tenleytown to Bethesda. We will continue to hold our classes at RRUUC the 2nd Sunday of the month. However, the time has changed to 4:30-6 p.m. (In March, due to lack of availability on the 11th, the Bethesda Children & Family Class will be held on March 18 at RRUUC. For April-June it will be held on the regularly scheduled 2nd Sundays.)
