every last Tuesday of the month

This monthly event at the National Cathedral is one of the best kept secrets in DC if you ask me, especially if you are looking for something a bit more contemplative. You can walk the Labyrinth and listen to live music, usually the harp and/ or flute, every last Tuesday of the month at The National Cathedral. The evening includes a Special Program from 7:30pm - 8:30pm, with program themes varying each month. 

Next event will be on Tuesday, August 26th

Going Out, Going In: Nature, Poetry, and the Spiritual Journey
Special Program led by Terri Lynn Simpson

"Explore the wisdom of nature expressed in the images of poetry as Terri Lynn Simpson helps us discover how going into the world and paying attention to the landscape around us can offer stepping stones for our spiritual journey. Enter into the process of going out and going in through your own words and experiences as well as the words and experiences of poets Mary Oliver, Charles Wright, and others. Meet in Bethlehem Chapel."

  1. Hey Amy -- can you give us a sense for how crowded these evenings get? Trying to gauge how early to arrive...

  2. Not too crowded, it's a really large space.
