    Nyinthün: Day-Long Meditation (In Person)

    This day-long session of group meditation will be held in person, at the Seekers Church, 276 Carroll St., NW, Takoma, DC (very near the Takoma Metro), from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

    Nyinthun is a group practice of sitting and walking meditation, usually held monthly. The practice begins and ends with a short set of traditional group chants and includes a dharma reading and a practice of compassion for those who have instruction in Tonglen.

    People of all levels of practice experience are always welcome.

    Nyinthün is open to all. Please register so we can get an idea of how many cushions we need. Participants can arrive and leave as they wish, but please do so during walking meditation as much as possible.

    The power of group meditation
    The group practice of Nyinthün is a special opportunity to extend and deepen and one’s meditation. Being supported and carried by the energy of group practice helps us to stay with the practice in a uplifted and supportive environment. This energy inspires our own practice further than short daily sessions alone can do. The deepening of our personal practice afforded by Nyinthun in turn gives momentum to our regular daily practice.

    Nyinthün is best experienced in its entirety, but people are free to join and leave the practice at any time.


    • Health & Accessibility: Masks are suggested.  They are optional, but highly encouraged out of consideration for the well-being of everyone.
    • Vaccination is not required, but we encourage everyone to be up-to-date on COVID and flu vaccines.
    • If you are not feeling well for any reason, please stay home and take care of yourself. We look forward to seeing you when you are feeling better.

    Additionally, we ask you to limit the use of scented products, as many people have chemical sensitivities. Note that the building is wheelchair accessible.
