Drop-in Class: Mindful Engagement 2020

Hugh Byrne IMCW Center for Mindful Living

Hugh Byrne

9/27/2020 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM  at  IMCW Center for Mindful Living (4708 Wisconsin Avenue, NW, Upper floor, Tenleytown, Washington DC, 20016) (Map It)

Mindfulness, compassion, loving-kindness, equanimity, and other dharma practices are a powerful and needed medicine for the challenging times we are living in. These qualities of heart help us meet our difficult mind states and emotions in a balanced way, allowing us to hold all we are experiencing with kindness and without judgment.

These practices also provide support to engage wisely and compassionately with the suffering of the world, strengthening our resilience as we work for justice, peace, and a sustainable future.

As we move towards the 2020 elections, we will need our practice and our support of each other more than ever. To help us meet our experience skillfully and engage in wise action in this period, we’re offering a monthly group meeting—"Mindful Engagement 2020: Bringing our Practice into the World".

The three main focuses and objectives of the monthly meetings will be:

To deepen dharma skills and practices—mindfulness, self-compassion, loving-kindness, equanimity, wise speech, wise action, and others—to respond to all that is arising within us and in the world in these times;

To support our active engagement in working for justice, peace, and a more compassionate and sustainable world—for example, through engagement in the 2020 electoral process, supporting vulnerable individuals and communities under attack, working for compassionate immigration policies, gun safety, and other forms of engagement.

To provide a venue for community/sangha to be together to support one another and break down the illusion of separation that can easily arise in difficult times.

No registration is necessary. Meditation classes are offered freely and are open to drop-ins.
