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, October 28th

October Special Program:
Grieving Mindfully: A Conversation about Loss and Hope
7:30pm - 8:30pm

Reverend Drema McAllister-Wilson leads a conversation on grieving, loss and hope"Birth and death. One we anticipate and celebrate. The other we ignore as long as possible, until death comes into our lives. Despite being a part of the life cycle, death and grief remain shrouded in mystery and often confusion and fear. Through presentation and sharing, film watching and storytelling, we will enter into a conversation about the journey of grief. You are invited to an evening of exploring how we can address loss intentionally, compassionately, and mindfully. What does grief look like? What does grief feel like? How can grief transform us? During our time together, we will explore the depths of an experience that affects and challenges each of us so profoundly."

  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.
