This meditation class (formerly at Church of the Holy City) meets at the Potter's House on Columbia Road.

Insight meditation cultivates our natural wisdom and compassion. Meditation practice develops concentration, which allows us to calm and steady the mind. This class includes a 30-minute guided meditation, a dharma (teaching) talk of 30-45 minutes, and time for sharing and discussion.

The teachers share teaching responsibilities and each teach about once a month. You can find teacher biographies on our Teachers webpage.

Guest leader: Devin Maroney

Between sessions community members organize brunches and other activities to explore the teachings in a peer-group setting and to build community. There is an active Google group (IMCW Downtown Dharma: downtowndharma @ googlegroups.com), which keeps members updated on class changes and between-class activities. This class is in the Adams Morgan/Dupont Circle neighborhood.

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.

The community room and restrooms at Potter's House are wheelchair accessible.

In the Buddhist tradition, the teachings are considered so precious as to be priceless. Thus they are given freely, with the opportunity to offer voluntary donations, or dana to support the teacher and class expenses. A donation (dana) of $10-15 is suggested for IMCW classes.
