The greater D.C. area is known throughout the country as having a robust and thriving community of meditators and meditation teachers. All are invited—longtime meditators and those new to the practice (including those who have never meditated)—to a time of meditation on the National Mall, at the Sylvan Theater from 4 to 6 p.m. on August 6. The event will offer loving-kindness meditation, mindfulness, music and food in an effort to bring healing to a world of violence. In honor of Armed Forces Day, they will offer a special recognition of all those who have served.
The free event is co-sponsored by The Mindfulness Center, BuddhaFest and Natural Awakenings. There will be teachings and a meditation, led 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 and in a new online course. Lauren Chelec Cafritz will offer breath-work and Angela Blueskies, will offer soul-stirring and deeply connected music for all to enjoy.
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.
