What is Wake Up? →Wake Up is a community for the young who want to pracice mindfulnes in our daily life and started in Europe and the U.S. We meditate together, share our thoughts, and work for creating a hopeful society for all of us. This community is mainly for young practitioners(18-35ish) but anyone can join and enjoy together:)
Monastics from Plum Village →As mentioned above, Wake Up is not just a one-day event but a community that leads regular gathering. However this event on 4/29 is special because sisters and brothers are coming from Plum Village in France and Thailand, and we'll be able to experience the teaching of mindfulness with them through the day.
