Invitation to the January 29 D.C. Contemplative Law Group gathering

Call Us: 703-383-1100

This past June, I took on the role of coordinating monthly meetings of the D.C. Contemplative Law Group and co-administering its email listserv.

All of you are invited to join our email listserv and our monthly gatherings, including our following January 29, 2013, gathering at Bua Thai Restaurant. Just let me know. We usually meet the last Tuesday of each month from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., as with this month’s gathering.

Here are the details for our next meeting:

Bua Thai Restaurant, January 29, 2013. 1635 P Street NW, Washington, D.C. 20036, (202) 265-0828. The meeting runs from 7:00PM to 9:00PM. Some people often come as early as 6:45PM. Parking is available across the street at Colonial Parking if you do not find street parking. The nearest subway stops are Dupont Circle and Farragut North.

We order dinner, do guided mediation for 20 minutes (we have a few members experienced to guide meditation), and eat dinner that includes a discussion led by one of the members.

Not one who is big on traditional county and state bar association activities, I feel that these Contemplative Law Group gatherings are a great way to further powerfulness as a lawyer by furthering mindfulness practice while also better understanding that everyone is interconnected, and to use that understanding for a better advantage in serving clients.

Mindfulness and meditation by now are in the mainstream in society, where they always have belonged. Here is my blog entry on the June 2012 contemplative law retreat at Blue Cliff Monastery.

Please RSVP to Jon Katz, jon@katzjustice.com, 301-495-7755, ext. 224. We already have numerous people confirmed. I look forward to seeing attendees there.
