Lamont Dharma House (1719 Lamont St., NW, Adams Morgan, Washington DC, 20010) (
3rd Saturdays, monthly.
Young adults in the IMCW community and other mindfulness-based communities around DC gather for an afternoon of meditation practice, mindful communication, discussion, and tea.
The group is for those in their 20’s and 30’s who want to take part in a conscious, mindful community. We welcome young adults of all ethnicities, races, genders, sexual orientations, and different abilities to our sangha.
Co-led by facilitators, the group offers the opportunity to build a community of spiritual friends with other young meditators. Our gathering from 2-4pm includes a guided meditation, activities to deepen our practice, and mindful sharing. There will be an opportunity to build further connections through unguided social time at 4pm with tea and snacks.
Aspirations for the Young Adult Sangha:
- Create a space where young adults in the greater DC area can share challenges and solutions in their mindfulness practice and in life with each other.
- Practice holding space for ourselves and each other through mindful dialogue and stillness.
- Be a conscious community that is open to listening from the heart, speaking from the heart, and deeply being with each other.
Insight meditation cultivates our natural wisdom and compassion. Meditation practice develops concentration, which allows us to calm and steady the mind.
No registration is necessary.
Newcomers to meditation and long time practitioners are welcome to attend IMCW classes. Chairs are always provided or you may bring your sitting gear. This event is offered freely; there will be an opportunity to offer dana (a donation) at the class.
