What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in mindfulness meditation, including those wishing to develop a meditation practice, deepen an existing meditation practice, and/or interested in bringing mindfulness into daily life.

Hugh Byrne and guest teachers lead weekly classes, periodic workshops and retreats, and special programs. Key focuses of the group are to cultivate mindfulness and other practices of the heart and mind--including loving-kindness, compassion, equanimity, wise speech, and wise action--so that we can live more wisely and kindly in the world.

Classes typically include guided meditations, short talk, sharing and opportunities to speak with Hugh about resources and strengthening one's practice. Many of the programs take place at the IMCW Center for Mindful Living in Tenleytown, DC--a vibrant community that is committed to equity, diversity and inclusivity and seeks to be welcoming to all.

**ONLINE** Mindfulness Meditation with Hugh Byrne

4125 Albemarle St NW

**NOW ONLINE** The weekly Sunday morning (10:30 am to 12 noon) class begins with a welcome, short reflection on an aspect of the teachings, and includes an arriving meditation (15 minutes) that will often incorporate poems and may end with a reflection or question. The opening meditation is followed by an invitation to each person to share their name and a few words (for example, what is alive for them right now or what their intention is for the class or the day). The sharing has been a powerful support to help welcome new people, get to know each other, and build community/sangha. Following a brief period of mindful stretching/movement, we finish with a longer meditation (25-30 minutes) and final reflections on the teachings, sharing, Q&A, and announcements. Class participants are welcome to stay and engage with other members of the community or adjourn to a neighboring restaurant or coffee shop. This space is inclusive, everyone is welcome, and we invite you to bring with you all aspects of yourself.
