Awakin Circle

Waking up to Wisdom
In Stillness and Community

Awakin gatherings started when three friends got together in 1996 to sit in silence, every Wednesday, in an ordinary living room in Silicon Valley. No teachers or gurus. No set agendas or proposed beliefs either. Awakin is about deepening our self-awareness, in a community of kindred spirits. By changing ourselves, we change the world. And instead of closing the door, they left it open … to all.

Today, Awakin Circles have organically rippled to eighty cities around the globe. People meditate for the first hour, engage in a circle of reflective sharing in the second hour, and conclude the evening with a delicious home-cooked vegan meal. It’s all about gratitude, sharing, community and harmony with yourself.

We welcome you to come join.
Admission is free and everyone is welcome!
We are very happy with a donation.

AWAKIN CIRCLES were initiated by Nipun Mehta whom I have had the pleasure of meeting and collaborating with on several occasions in Auroville-India and in Vienna-Austria. He lives and spreads a lifestyle of generosity. Dalai Lama presented him with the “Unsung Hero of Compassion Award”.
