From recharj:

“recharj is the premier mindfulness studio in Washington, DC. Just steps from the White House, we deliver peace of mind in a noisy city. We feature “best in class” meditation teachers offering accessible and enriching classes from a variety of traditions. Come experience an inspiring 20-minute meditation session or power nap during your workday. When classes are not in session, our meditation room is open to the public for self-guided practice.

Imagine a sanctuary guarded from the stress and constant noise of the outside world. A place where you can unplug your mind and recharj your soul. Come discover “recharj”.

We are located within lobby level – Suite 130 – of the historic Suntrust Building at 1445 New York Ave NW steps from the White House. Proceed through the main entrance, walk past the guard desk, and make a quick turn to your left. There we are!”

    The way they spell “recharj” is certainly not providing me with peace of mind. In fact, quite the opposite. jk it’s whatevs

      Lol. At least they managed to use some vowels. So they’ve got that going for them…

    I love the sleeping-kitty photo that PoP chose to accompany this post. What a cute cat, and looking so blissed-out!

  • LittleBluePenguin

    I want to be this kitty! S/he looks so happy and peaceful!


    If the cat is involved in this meditation session, I’m in.

    $15 for a 20 minute nap in a “cocoon”? Nah, I’ll just get some coffee, thanks.

    Silly name (and bad website) aside, it’s a great idea. I’ve been wanting to develop a mid-day meditation practice myself, but I feel I need a regular class to help jump-start the habit (too bad it would take me 40 minutes each way to get to this location).

    I got really excited about nap time with cats until I read the whole description.

    Oh wait you have to pay? Pass. I can do both of these activities under my desk at work for free.

      Thanks a lot! Now everyone knows I was reading popville instead of working because I chortled at my desk.

      • SaraEP

    Cat Bellies – the most tempting and yet most dangerous things in the world.
