Holding all beings with a compassionate heart

IMCW would like to reach out to our community as we process what, for many, has been deep distress following the recent election.  All of us, however we voted, can use this time to recommit ourselves to mindfulness, compassion, and awareness. We can use our practice every day to  give what we can--whether time, talent or money-- to help work for issues that affect all of us: protecting our planet; eliminating poverty and hunger; working for racial justice and equity; and supporting those who are most vulnerable in their quest for safety and social and economic justice.

We can do all of this each and every day by deepening our understanding of ourselves and each other, and by holding all beings with a compassionate heart.

In times of darkness, it’s essential to remember loving community.  From our friends at Empty Hands Music, we offer their video, “Keep Loving”. We hope it serves your heart and spirits.

It is the mission of IMCW/The Insight Meditation Community of Washington is to support the awakening of hearts and minds through the direct experience of the Buddhist path, and the integration and manifestation of wisdom and compassion in all aspects of life, for the benefit of all beings.
