Meditation on the National Mall
Jul 30, 2015 09:42PM
The event is co-sponsored by the Insight Meditation Community of Washington (IMCW), BuddhaFest, the Mindfulness Center and Natural Awakenings. Over the course of the two hour event, there will be teachings and a meditation, led by Hugh Byrne, Ph.D., an internationally known instructor who is based in D.C., and Debbie Norris, Ph.D., founder of the Mindfulness Center. Norris is a health scientist who has trained extensively in mind-body therapies and teaches meditation and trains new meditation teachers in Bethesda. The intention of the meditations at the event is to bring healing to a world of violence.
Following the teachings and meditation practice, there will be a time for the community to gather together with music, supplied by Lea, a soulfolk songwriter and singer, who is making a big mark on the D.C. music scene. Refreshments will also be provided.
All are encouraged to come, bring a mat and a friend, to this great day of community building.
Location: The Sylvan Theater is located next to the Washington Monument at the corner of 15th NW and Independence Ave.
