I have been training to teach meditation and mindfulness to students at Howard through the Koru Mindfulness Training Center.
Just finished an unofficial, online class titled Koru Basic starting July 13 and ending August 3.
It is for beginners, and would help you to learn to manage stress, deal with difficult situations, develop calmness and concentration, and finally, compassion for yourself and others.
There are no exams or grades and only four classes but you have to attend all four.
The next class will be on Sep 21, 28, Oct 5 and 12.
Howard students can register at this website.
A handout from the previous class outlining some key things to know about meditation.
Another handout with resources for continuing meditation practice after completing the Koru Basic class.

Monday evenings 6 pm (currently online, email me for joining)
Primarily for Howard University community, but all are welcome.

Sunday evenings 6.30 pm (also online)
Information at Washington Mindfulness Community
(A group of Thich Nhat Hanh followers).

The following are some other organisations whose work I admire and have meditated with:
